Rhine Fall at Schaffhausen
Again... as soon as we touched down in Zurich and reached our hotel, we decided that we would embark on a short trip to Schaffhausen. A must visit place for this trip is the Rhine Fall, especially since it is summer now.
So, how to get there:
1. Take a train from the main train station (train departs almost every 20-30mins).
There are direct trains to the city of the the fall itself, but some may require you to change train. We took the latter as it is cheaper and fit our timing well. The return tix cost 23euro.
2. We had to change at Winterthur to get to Rhein Fall (we selected the fall as the final stop, NOT the city)
3. ..... ta da
That's the Rhein Fall station
We chose to climb up to the top. The view was breathtaking for sure.
Awh...can I have this?
Where to go next?
Result of my hard-work: see the 'mice'?
ta da.... Rhein Fall
It was really HOT!!
We were fortunate as we came in summer time where the mountain snow melts and they just had a few days of rain. So, that explained the flowy water at the fall :)
With Karen.. we both fell asleep during the short train trip -___-''
The boat ride from one end to another cost 2.5CHF per trip. If you want to visit the small 'island' shown above where you can stay there embracing the summer heat and refreshing 'water fall', be prepared to pay 10CHF.
Last pix before I bid farewell.
We were to tired to explore the city, so we headed back to Zurich.
Found this at the main train station!!! That's what I called EUROCUP fever!!! Woohooo....
So cuteee.... and hugeee.......
Kick my *ss...
This is where they held the match in Zurich, Stadium Letziegrund. It is only a block from my hotel.... imagine if I reached there on 17th June instead ^^
Nice fall... unbearable heat...
This half-day trip to Rhine Fall cost:
23 CHF for return train tix
7.8 CHF for 24-hour tram pass
1 CHF for entry to get near to the fall
5 CHF for the return boat ride to the other end
5.7 CHF for 'lunch' (a sausage and a pc of bread)
3.9 CHF for Nestea
sigh... it is expensive to dine and travel in Switzerland
