Photographer's Note

The Rheinfall is the largest waterfall in Europe in terms of volume of water. Only 23 meters high, it is not very tall, but with the full weight of the Rhine running over it, it looks spectacular. The whole town (Neuhausen am Rheinfall) is built around the tourist industry that the Rheinfall attracts. In the middle of the fall, there are two huge rocks, one of which is like a horse-shoe in shape. Boats take tourists to these rocks and when you climb the rickety stairs, which is quite scary if very crowded, you find yourself looking over the huge volume of water. There are nice restaurants and hotels around the fall. There is a beautiful bridge at the back, over which an occasional red train passes to make the view even more beautiful. Here you can see the schloss (castle). Below the hill there are terraces (I guess some are natural) where you can go down to have a closer look at the water. At night the lights around the fall give it a magical look, so try to stay late and enjoy the night view as well.
You can see the original shot in the ws.

Rheinfall cok yuksek olmamasina karsin (23 m.), su hacmi sayesinde Avrupa'nin en buyuk selalesi. Tam ortada iki buyuk kaya var, bir tanesi at nali seklinde. Buraya tekneyle gidilebiliyor. Ama cok dar ve tehlikeli gorunen merdivenleri var. Eger kalabaliksa inis ve cikis epey urkutucu oluyor. Ama manzara muthis. Selalenin etrafinda lokantalar, kafeler ve oteller mevcut. Arka taraftaki koprunun uzerinden arada bir gecen kirmizi trenler manzarayi daha da guzellestiriyor. Kaleye cikmak da gerekli, oranin manzarasi da ayri guzel. Tepeden asagiya inerseniz bazilari muhtemelen dogal olan teraslar goreceksiniz. Burada selaleye cok yakindan bakmak mumkun. Gece isiklandirilinca buyulu bir gorunum olusuyor, o yuzden mutlaka gec saate dek kalin derim. Renkli hali WSde.
