Rock Experience

Fortune favours the brave.

The Rock Experience is without doubt our highlight at the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen.

Loud thundering and roaring is guaranteed at Europe’s largest waterfall, where the water plunges 23 metres into the depths. In the midst of this natural spectacle, you have the unique opportunity to climb the Middlerock. It is not quite so easy to reach, but it is really worth it, because the giant is something very special.

Feel the magic of untouched nature.
