Bike Touring Highlight
The breathtaking force of nature is impressive. Somehow I had the Rhine in mind, as he adds in Western Europe in his riverbed and donate energy, as here at the Rhine Falls. What would Europe be without Father Rhein? And of course, there are such wonderful sections for us cyclists that we all like so much.

Impressive view of the Rhine Falls. Even if it is not very high, you can literally feel the tremendous energy it emits.
Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
The Rhine Falls has a height of 23 meters and a width of 150 meters. The Kolk in the impact zone has a depth of 13 meters. In the middle of the Rhine, 373 cubic meters of water per second fall over the rocks in the Rhine Falls (average summer runoff: about 600 m³ / s). The highest discharge was measured in 1965 with 1250 cubic meters, the lowest outflow in 1921 with 95 cubic meters per second. Also in the years 1880, 1913 and 1953, the runoff was similarly low.
