Full description
As you travel towards the Rhine Falls in northern Switzerland on this coach trip, you’ll pass through the charming farming village of Marthalen, with its traditional frame houses. You’ll also see the 16th-century Munot Fortress and the area’s renowned vineyards.

The highlight of the trip will undoubtedly be the sight of the Rhine Falls. This natural feature is located on the Upper Rhine River and has been around since the Ice Age.

During the summer you can take an optional boat ride to the middle of the falls, at the heart of the cascading waters, and enjoy the magnificent spectacle from the viewing platforms.

Alternatively, you can enjoy a leisurely hour on the banks of the river. The return journey takes you over the border to southern Germany for a short stretch. Back in Zurich, you’ll be dropped off in the city center or at the airport.
