On August 19, 2012 we went with a group of nice friends to the Rhine Falls (Rheinfall in German), the largest plain waterfall in Europe. The falls are located on the Upper Rhine between the municipalities of Neuhausen am Rheinfall and Laufen-Uhwiesen, near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zürich. They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high. The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks.
We rode a ferry up to the falls, jumped off the ferry and let the current of the Rhine River carry us down, for about half an hour, to our picnic spot. The water was about 20º, refreshing, clean and beautiful. We rode the ferry twice, and Pascal and I jumped off the bridge once. I had the Go Pro camera strapped to my head to record the whole event.
It is nice to know that next year we will be able to do this again!
Enjoy the video!
