The walking route we propose is a circular route that starts in the center of Schaffhausen and, following a well-marked footpath that runs along the banks of the river, reaches the waterfalls in just over an hour and then returns to the city along the opposite bank. Around halfway through, you can visit the waterfall area, enjoy one of the many boat tours, or visit Schloss Laufen on the south side for an up-close view of the impressive body of water. The entire route is about 10 km long, is easy and pleasant and can be covered in about two and a half hours (not including the time spent visiting the waterfalls).
