The Rhine Falls (Rheinfall in German) are the largest waterfalls of Europe.
They are located in the upper course of the river Rhine, in the municipality of Neuhausen am Rheinfall, near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland and close to the German border.
They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high, with an average flow of some 700 m³/s of water.

Hui Chin and I visisted The Rhine Falls in Switzerland during our trip around Europe in 2005, while we were visiting Schaffhausen.
Of course I could say that we visited Schaffhausen while we were looking for The Rhein Falls.
Both are very nice.
