Rhine Falls in Northern Switzerland in Photographs: A Mini Trip Report
I f you ever find yourself in northern Switzerland near the German border, you may want to consider taking a side trip to Rhine Falls — or Rheinfall, as it is known in German — located in its namesake, the Rhine River.
You can view the falls from either a viewing platform on the northern banks of the falls free of charge or from a viewing platform on the Schloss Laufen side of the falls for a fee of five Swiss francs per person — or you can choose to take a boat ride closer to the falls. You can even rent a canoe for 70 Swiss francs.
A FlyerTalk member with whom I have been friends for years brought me there in his car with a colleague of his. Although I have been to other falls such as Iguazu Falls — which I intend to highlight in a future photographic trip report — and Niagara Falls, I found historic Rhine Falls to be peaceful and calming with some nice scenery.
