Rheinfalls  (5 Answers)

Hallo. The Rheinfall site says that in order to visit the north bank (Neuhausen) it is free and that you only pay for parking your car or, of course, if you take an activity.
As for the south bank it says about 5 CHF/person entrance fee but no charge for parking.
Is the 5 CHF an entrance fee to the area of the bank or to the building of Schloss Laufen?
Actually we would like to have some good free of charge views of the falls and take the boat to the basin. We are not at all interested in the Schloss and if the charge of 5 CHF/per person is for the entrance to the south bank, we will drive straight to the north bank although arriving from Winterthur. Nevertheless as far as I can understand the views are better from the north bank. Any help? Thank you.

Day trips from Zurich  (1 Answer)

I am a photographer, so I am interested in finding day trips departing out of a Zurich base - in any direction. Have a SW rail pass, so should probably take advantage of that! :) Also considering one overnight trip into Austria. Have been to Innsbruck previously.

Castles are nice but probably looking more for wine or lakes, etc. Have done numerous castle ventures.

Any Info Welcome  (2 Answers)

Good VT people, I am, afraid to say, writing one of those postings that I, myself, find rather difficult to answer: that is, the ones that rather vaguely ask about a location (Examples: "What should I see in Europe in 3 weeks?", or "Where should I go in Amsterdam in 3 days?"). But, I am being sent to Schaffhausen (Switzerland) on Feb 21 for a day of work, and plan to extend my visit for a few days. My business dealings, I assume, will be a bit out of the town itself (DSM, for those who are familiar with it), and not having time to research the area as much as I would like to, I would like to ask the proverbial 'vague' questions: Is there a hotel I should definitely book? What should I NOT miss (other than the waterfalls ;-).. etc., etc.,. I am taking a look at the existing pages, but would like to hear anything from anyone who has been to this town, which according to what I have seen, appears to be a lovely place to spend a few days. Best Regards, Robin Linda
