“There is a hidden message in every waterfall. It says, if you are flexible, falling will not hurt you!” - Mehmet Murat ildan
Is there anything more picturesque than a waterfall? The contrasting masterpiece of elegance and power gets me every time. Labelled the largest waterfall in Europe (it seems like this competition was based on water flow), the Rheinfalls (Rhine Falls) should be somewhere on top of your waterfall list. Located in Northern Switzerland, next to Schaffhausen and easily reached by public transportation.
There are boat rides available if you want to get close and personal with the splashes and feel the power. Or you could, like us, take a lengthy walk along the river. Either way, this area is striking from every angle. Great day trip not too far from Zurich for some family fun in the sun.
