In northern Switzerland, you can take a boat to the base of Rheinfall, the largest waterfall in Europe, and climb the stairs on the pinnacle of rock at its center. Including the climb, a ride lasts about 30 minutes.

No reservation is needed; simply meet the boat at the dock. CHF20 (near $21).

On a hill above the falls, Castle Laufen can also be visited.
