The 7 Natural Wonders of Switzerland


2. Rhine Falls

Formed by the last ice age more than 14,000 years ago, the Rhine Falls are located on the Upper Rhine between Neuhausen am Rheinfall and Laufen-Uhwiesen. Not only are the falls the largest in Switzerland, they are also the largest plain waterfall on the European continent at 150 meters wide and 23 meters high. In the summer peak season, Rhine Falls pushes more than 700,000 liters of water over the edge each second! Visitors are welcome to stand on a platform feeling the spray of the roaring water or join a boating voyage to the island in the heart of the falls to feel the ultimate power of Rhine Falls.
