The journey to Rhine Falls will take you through Northern Switzerland, close to the border of Switzerland and Germany. This area is famous for its vineyards, and is home to many small villages such as Schaffhausen - where the historical 16th century Munot Fortress is located - and Marthalen, a charming farming village. Finally, you'll arrive at Europe's famous Rhine Falls. At 23 metres high and 150 metres long, Rhine Falls is Europe's biggest waterfall. If the magnificent view isn't enough, summer visitors can take a boat ride to a rock in the middle of the falls, an unforgettably beautiful - and unforgettably wet - experience.
