Protective Measures COVID-19!

Boat tours in front of breathtaking scenery are possible again. For the protection of our guests and employees and to contain COVID-19, we have made it compulsory to wear a face mask on all our boat tours.

General information

The boat tours operate in September and October daily (incl. Sundays & holidays) from 11:00 to 17:00. End of season is on 1 November

In bad weather conditions the boats are covered. Please note that in case of persistent bad weather and/or low visitor numbers individual courses will be reduced or discontinued.

Short tour blue line no. 4: approx. every 15 minutes

Rock tour yellow line No. 1: approx. every 20 minutes

Rhine crossing red line no. 2: approx. every 10 minutes

Please note that changes to the timetable are possible. The communicated departure times on site apply.

In principle, the protective measures also apply to travel groups, as well as the specific requirements of the Federal Council regarding the gathering of persons in public places and those for public and private events. The sanctioning of “guilty” persons/groups is not the responsibility of Rhyfall Mändli personnel.

The obligation to wear a face mask also applies to persons in travel groups, as the requirement to keep their distance cannot be guaranteed at all times in individual locations in order to protect themselves and especially their fellow travellers. The group leader is responsible for the observance of the protective measures and the possible equipment of the group with hygiene masks.


Boat tours with school classes are possible. Please register the class on the day of your visit at one of our ticket counters, prior written registrations are not possible.

Protective Measures

As the requirement to keep a distance cannot be guaranteed at all times at individual locations, the obligation to wear a face mask applies on all our boat tours.

The obligation to wear a face mask is basically valid for all guests. Children up to their 12th birthday are excluded from the obligation.

Face masks are available at our ticket counters at cost price of 1.00 CHF.

Please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters wherever possible. Floor markings or posters are placed at the appropriate places to indicate the rules of distance.

Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly according to the instructions of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. Avoid shaking hands with other people.

You can disinfect your hands in front of our ticket counter and in the boarding area. You can also wash your hands regularly in the toilets at the Rhine Falls.

Tickets can still be purchased directly on site at our ticket counters on the day of your visit. There is no obligation to buy an online ticket. Tickets in the online store are available up to and with the season ending on Sunday 01 November 2020.

Travelling from abroad: Border crossings from Germany, France and Austria are permitted from 15 June 2020. Detailed information is available at the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM).


The boat trip to the Rhine Falls basin and the walk up the Rhine Falls rock are among the most impressive experiences.
