Visiting the Rhine Falls was a must during our trip to Switzerland, being the largest plain waterfall in Europe and all, and the fact that Darryl’s family live ten minutes away by train meant this was easily doable. Christmas two years ago Darryl and I spent the festivities in Scotland, which is somewhere I spent many holidays growing up, so for Darryl to be able to take me to the places he spent his childhood was really special.
I didn’t have massively high expectations of this popular tourist attraction as normally waterfalls aren’t something I’m particularly interested in, but the Rhine Falls are something else. Not only are they gigantic, but the sheer force of the turquoise waters crashing down literally a matter of feet from where you’re standing is breathtaking. Especially when you head out onto the platform to get covered in the light spray from the falls!
The best part about this place is that you don’t have to pay to see the Falls, yes, you have to pay to get up close, but it’s so inexpensive and if you ask me is one hundred percent worth it. With a seemingly endless stretch of river to walk along and a beautiful town beside it, a trip to the Rhine Falls in Neuhausen is a must.
Next up, we’re heading further south to the town of Lucerne.
