There is no other waterfall in Europe bigger than the Rheinfall ---> and this is a record!
A trip to the rock, a round trip in the river basin or a leisurely cruise to Rheinau are simple unforgettable experiences which visitors enjoy when they visit the Rhein Falls!
And as part of the student activities, our students have the opportunity to enjoy the unique and fabulous Rhine Falls which are an amazing spectacle!
The Rhine Falls were formed in the last ice age, approximately 14,000 to 17,000 years ago, by erosion-resistant rocks narrowing the riverbed. There is a rock in the middle of the falls and this is one of the highlights in the Rhine Falls and our students always have the chance to ride a boat, climb up the rock and admire one of the highlights of this excursion!
From the pier at Schlössli Wörth the experienced captain steers the narrow boat through wild, churning waters, moors in the middle of the Rhine Falls and lets the passengers disembark and ascend the rock. There is the unforgettable panorama, surrounded by up to 700,000 litres of water per second!
