The Rhine Falls, "Europe's Niagara," constitute Europe's largest waterfall by volume. Located in northern Switzerland near the German border, the Rhine Falls are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high. Trails lead right to the edge of the thundering falls, which in summer are truly awesome due to the huge volume of water exploding with incredible violence just meters away from the closest viewpoint.
