Switzerland is full of quintessentials from cows, to fondue to alphorns and banks. I decided to show a typical Swiss thing, the Rheinfall in Neuhausen, next to Schaffhausen. When my son eventually settled down with a wife this was the part of Switzerland he moved to. His wife is German and Germany is just over the border. We are in the northern part of Switzerland so he and his family (there is now also a grandson) are sort of living in between although my son still has an appartment near where we live, where he works. I had seen the Rheinfall once almost 50 years ago when I first arrived in Switzerland, but now have the opportunity to pay visits to my son now and again and make the most of one of Switzerland’s famous landmarks.
It is quite imposing and also a tourist attraction as you can see by the boat with the tourists and the ladders going up and down the rocky surface on the island in the middle. It is not quite Niagara, but just as unique.
