The mighty roar and roar of Europe’s largest waterfall is guaranteed here, as the masses of water plunge down from a height of around 23 meters. In the midst of this natural spectacle, there is a unique opportunity: the chance to climb the middle rock. Although the climb is not entirely effortless, it is undoubtedly worth the effort, as this giant is something very special.

The rock trip offers a unique perspective of the Rhine Falls. A boat takes visitors directly to the heart of the waterfall, the mighty central rock. During a 20-minute stop there, you have the opportunity to climb the more than 100 steps to the 30-metre-high viewing platform. The climb rewards you with a unique 360-degree view of the Rhine Falls. During the return trip to the port, you will once again be presented with an incomparable backdrop for photographs that you should definitely not miss.

The Rhine Falls, Europe’s largest waterfall, stretches over 150 meters in width and plunges majestically 23 meters into the depths. Here we are on the middle rock in the waterfall. At normal water levels in the Rhine, an impressive 22,200 cubic meters of water per minute pour over the rock formations of the Rhine Falls. This volume of water is subject to considerable fluctuations, averaging 600 m³/s in summer and dropping to around 250 m³/s in winter. The highest discharge rate ever recorded was 1,250 m³/s in 1965, while the lowest was 95 m³/s in 1921.

It is possible to get within 50 meters of the thundering waterfall by excursion boat. In the middle of the waterfall is an impressive rock that has withstood the forces of nature for thousands of years. Thanks to the excursion boats, it is possible to reach this rock. A narrow and steep staircase with more than 100 steps leads to the top of the rock, where a 30-metre-high viewing platform offers a breathtaking close-up view of the impressive natural spectacle.
