From US$67.36
Overview
Journey from Zurich to see the Rhine Falls and historical Stein am Rhein on this 5-hour sightseeing trip by air-conditioned coach. Travel northward through vine-coated hills to the Swiss-German border. Visit Laufen Castle to see the falls, and if you’re here in summer, take an optional boat ride for an up-close look at the cascades.

You will meet in Central Zurich, but your tour includes also optional Zurich airport pickup and drop-off, ideal if you’re short on time.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Sihlquai

Depart central Zurich or Zurich airport by comfortable coach and journey into northern Switzerland close to the German border. As you travel, pass pretty farming villages and vineyards, and hear from your guide how this beautiful region is known for its wine production.

Stop At: Rhine Falls, Neuhausen am Rheinfall

Arrive at 15th-century Laufen Castle, set on a clifftop facing the Rhine Falls, and take in the 450-foot (150-meter) wide and 75-foot (23-meter) high falls, Europe’s biggest. 
Enjoy an hour here to see an exhibition, admire panoramic views from the glass elevator, or walk to the viewpoints above and around the falls to thrill at their roar and power. The site also has a playground, shops and restaurants. Perhaps opt for a boat ride (Subject to availability and not included in price) to experience the crashing cascades close up.

Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Pass By: Munot, Schaffhausen

Enjoy some free time either here, or later, to refuel with a snack (own expense), and then drive by the 16th-century Munot Fortress in Schaffhausen, before continuing to Stein am Rhein, famous for its painted medieval houses.

Stop At: Stein am Rhein Old City, Stein am Rhein

Here, follow your guide on an hour-long walk around the cobbled Old Town to see the top landmarks, and admire the timber-frame townhouses with their stunning frescoes. Hear how most houses date to the Renaissance, and are built from stone inlaid with delicate wood windows.
