The Rhine Falls and Lower Rhine Region
The Rhine Falls are the largest waterfalls in Europe and lie on the border of the canton of Schaffhausen, the canton of Zurich and Germany. It offers a spectacular show to visitors. The water cascades down the cataracts, which are 450 ft (150m) wide and 75 ft (23m) high. A boat trip either to the famous rock in the middle of the Falls with a short walk to the top, or across the river below the Falls or down the Rhine River are most exciting.
