WPC – Forces of Nature


To stand high above Europe’s largest waterfall, feeling the roar and vibration of the water over one’s entire body – this can be experienced at the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen. By ship one can reach castles, the Rhine Falls Basin and even the mighty rock in the midst of the waterfall.

I think the Rhine Falls demonstrate perfect the force of nature. All the important details about the Falls:

Width of the Falls 150 metres
Height of the Falls 23 metres
Depth of the basin 13 metres
Age of the Falls approx. 15’000 years
Capacity of flow in summer approx. 600’000 litres per second
Capacity of flow in winter approx. 250’000 litres per second
Lowest capacity of flow 1921, 95’000 litres per second
Greatest capacity of flow 1965, 1’250’000 litres per second
