Rhine Falls and Stein am Rhein Half-Day Tour from Zurich

Visit the magnificent Rhine Falls and pretty village of Stein am Rhein on this 5-hour trip from Zurich. With a guide, you'll travel through northern Switzerland’s rolling wine country to the falls, Europe’s largest. View the roaring waters from clifftop Laufen Castle, and, in summer, choose to ride a boat close up to the cascades. Afterward, take a guided stroll around medieval Stein am Rhein to admire its fresco-painted, half-timber houses and other historical highlights. 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.
