The waterfall on the Rhine
I must admit that waterfalls are one of those natural phenomena that I would not associate with Europe in any way. At least not the ones, which are big, meaningful, intimidating or showing the power of water.
Meanwhile, the waterfall on the Rhine is not only exceptionally beautifully situated, but also allows you to experience quite strong impressions when you go to the viewing platform under the Laufen Castle. 🙂
The Rhine Falls – the largest waterfall in Europe
The Rhine Falls (Rheinfall) is the largest waterfall in Europe in terms of flow. It was created during the last ice age and it is about 15 thousand years old.
The height of the waterfall may not be very impressive due to the fact that it is only 23 m, but the width of 150 m is definitely notable. 🙂
In addition, it is worth noting that the Rhine Falls is located about 4 km from the beautiful and by far worth visiting Schaffhausen. 🙂
If interested, I invite you also to my Youtube channel. Here is a short video presenting Rhine Falls.

I am a passionate enthusiast of travel, archeology, photography and dancing 🙂 On this page I try to combine the first three elements: P and show you that travelling becomes definitely more interesting when we discover visited places, and often inconspicuous ruins hide the most fascinating stories 🙂
