Look at this :
Impressive, right ? Today, we take you to the Rhine falls, the biggest waterfalls of Europe.
The Rhine falls formed during the last glaciation, about 14’000 to 17’000 years ago. The northern bank with Schlössli Wörth is on the canton of Schaffhausen, the southern bank with the castle of Laufen on the canton of Zurich.
A few figures :
- Width : 150 metres
- Height : 23 metres
- Depth of the basin : 13 metres
- Capacity of flow in summer : approx. 600’000 litres per second
- Capacity of flow in winter : approx. 250’000 litres per second
Claire and Momo arrived by the South. To reach the river, they went by foot and went through the castle of Laufen, which overhangs the falls.
A way comes down to the panoramic terraces then arrives at a small landing stage.
From there, several boat trips permit to discover closely this magnificent natural show. Here we go !
