    Rhine Falls

    September 16, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    This was fantastic! The amount and speed of the water cascading over the falls is huge! We are staying in a wonderful old hotel in Schaffhausen not far from the falls. We walked over the foot bridge to the castle, then took the lift down to the viewing platform. There is a cave entrance to the side of the falls from here. Then took the boat to the small island landing in the centre of the falls where you can climb to another viewing platform. Just an awesome sight!Read more

    Od vodopádu jsme zamířili do malebného historického Schaffhausenu, který je proslulý bohatými freskami a arkýřovými okny, která byla v minulosti symbolem bohatství. Město se nám moc líbilo. Byl tu oproti vodopádu příjemný klídek a hezká pevnost. 👍Read more

    We've just spent 2 nights in a wonderful Baroque Hotel in Schaffhausen, leaving Switzerland today to travel through the Black Forest in Germany to Strasbourg in France.

    Rozzie...in Strasbourg...we didn't plan our time wisely to see the super cool clock in the church do it's thing (which is a nerdy thing to want to see possibly)...or book in to climb up the hundreds of stairs to top of the spires in the catherdral... So can I request you do both and capture on video videos (so can experience through you guys 😀)

    Just went to the church to see the clock and then saw your post- so 1st request taken care of! As for the other- stair climb, there are 450 steps to the top, so surprisingly I haven't done that yet😫😉

    Day 55-Lucerne to Schaffhausen,68 miles

    June 9, 2016 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    After yesterday's wet grey day it was more the same in Lucerne this morning and the forecast not much better East for the next few days. So I've changed plans slightly. The mountains might be beautiful but if you can't see them you could be riding anywhere. As a result I decided to head north towards Zurich to start then upto the Rhine.

    35 very wet miles after leaving Lucerne I arrived in Zurich where the weather thankfully cleard up. Had a good wander round Zurich and stunning setting on the lake and really nice city. Place was spotless as well. Something I've noticed with the whole of Switzerland.

    Heading out of Zurich the weather really cleard up and from full waterproofs this morning it was sun cream this afternoon. Nice ride up to Schaffhausen via a quick dip into Germany and it's very welcoming sign! The Rhine Falls the largest 'plain' waterfall in Europe are in Schaffhausen and not sure what plain means but pretty impressive falls.

    Trip has been amazing soo far but need to start heading back and EuroVelo route 15 that follows the Rhine River is going to be perfect to follow for the next few days. Onto Basel tomorrow.

    The Munot is a circular 16th century fortification in the center of Schaffhausen. It is surrounded by vineyards and serves as the city's symbol. The ring-shaped fortress was built in the 16th century.
