Waterfalls are spectacular sights no matter how big they are. There is something to be said about water cascading and frothing down a mountainside or around rocks. Simply beautiful!
Today’s pictures were taken many, many, many, many years ago. I won’t tell you exactly how many but it was at the end of my honeymoon. On our way back into Germany we stopped by Europe’s largest waterfall, the Rhine Falls.
Now I know they aren’t as massive as Niagara or Iguazu Falls but they really are very pretty and impressive.
The Rhine Falls are at the Upper Rhine near Schaffhausen Switzerland and are actually a series of 3 falls, Zurcher, Schaffhauser and Muhle Falls. The 15,000 year old falls have approximately 750,000 liters of water powering over them every second. That’s a lot of water! Viewing the falls can be done by platforms located on either side or by boat.
So if you’re in the area, I can recommend you stop by. . .
What are your favorite European waterfalls???
