  • Day102

    Rheinfall, Northern Switzerland

    September 16, 2017 in Switzerland

    WOW! WOW! !WOW! The falls are amazing! Easy to see, easy to access, hard to forget!
    The falls are located on the High Rhine on the border between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zürich.
    They are 150 metres wide and 23 metres high. We took a boat to "the rock" in the middle of the falls where we walked to the top to enjoy 360 degree view of the falls and feel the spray on your face. There are also viewing platforms with a spectacular view of the falls built on both sides of the Rhine.Read more

    Schaffhausen - Munot Castle

    September 17, 2017 in Switzerland

    First stop today - Munot Castle. So glad we took the time before leaving Scaffhausen. Such an interesting place. The fortress is open so you are able to walk in and look around for free! My kind of tourist attraction! Great views of Schaffhausen and of the vineyard below the fortress. Deers roam the grounds.
    The Munot is a circular 16th century fortification in the center of Schaffhausen and serves as the city's symbol. Today, it is a tourist attraction and hosts various events.Read more

    Rhine Falls

    September 16, 2017 in Switzerland

    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

    Day 55-Lucerne to Schaffhausen,68 miles

    June 9, 2016 in Switzerland

    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.
