Hi Swissalps experts!

I will be staying in Schaffhausen and plan to visit Rhine falls early in the morning.Google maps shows several stations near the falls and I get confused.If I come from Schaffhausen ,from which station should I get off to have a better view of the falls? If I get down from Schloss Laufen Am Rheinfall can I cross the river by walking across the railway bridge?To return to Schaffhausen quickly ,from which station should I get the train?

Appreciate your advice.Thanks!

Hello Xmistral99,

yes, you can walk through the bridge. I would recommend this route to have the best view points: www.myswissalps.com/rh inefalls. And you can also find a map here: www.myswissalps.com/rh inefalls/gettingthere, I think this is the best for you.

Thanks Ildiko those links were really helpful and now I got a clear picture of the area!

If I have Swiss travel pass won't I have to buy tickets for Laufen castle and boat ride to Schossli worth?

With the Swiss Travel Pass your train ride is for free, but you still have to pay for the attractions and the boat trip: www.myswissalps.com/rh inefalls/tickets
