RHINE FALLS Switzerland & KONSTANZ Germany

Day trips

-The Rhine Falls and Konstanz were two day trips from a stay in Schaffhause in
Switzerland. I took a service bus from the front of Schaffhausen rail station, for the
short ride to Neuhausen . The Rhine Falls are a short walk down hill to the River Rhine. There had
not been any rain so the water flow was low.. There is a Cafe Bar so refreshments can be
enjoyed before the walk back to Neuhausen for the bus back to Schaffhausen..--------SCHAFFHAUSEN,  SWITZERLAND,  Railway  station and  Bus  stops.
