Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall

Northeastern Switzerland

Looking proudly back on 1000 years of history, the medieval Schloss Laufen offers a close-quarters view of the Rheinfall cascade. You can buy a ticket at its souvenir shop to walk or take the panoramic lift down to the Känzeli viewing platform, where you can appreciate the full-on crash-bang spectacle of the falls.
