Rhine Falls

I haven't seen such spectacular fall before.. This rhine fall in Switzerland is awesome!

I viewed it from afar but those people took a boat to the small island and viewed it as close as possible.


Simply magnificent..


Switzerland offers more than just the spectacular scenery of the Alps. Nestled between Lake Constance and Basel, lies a hidden treasure that sparkles and glimmers in the sunlight awaiting the arrival of visitors to explore its dazzling beauty and majestic wonders. Located near Schaffhausen, the majestic Rhine River flows into the breathtaking structure of the Rhine Falls, which is the largest waterfall in Europe. With its huge 50 meters in width and reaching a height of 23 meters, a torrential 700m3 of gushing water rushed over the cliff each second offering the visitors a stunning view of the cascading waterfalls.

    WATER ON WEDNESDAY

    Water on Wednesday
    And other days too,
    Water for me, friend,
    And water for you;

    Water as ocean
    And water as sea,
    Water for you, friend,
    And water for me;

    Every day water
    In puddle or ice
    Or snowflakes or mist—
    Oh, water is nice!

  13. It is really nice and unique falls. I dread taking boats to view closer and risk my life! There were boats which capsized but went unreported!
