Travel: The Rhine Falls, Switzerland

                                                                                                                            
  One of the best parts about where I lived in Switzerland was the fact that the largest plain waterfalls in all of Europe was right in my backyard. Well, about a 5 minutes drive from my house but none the less as exciting. 
The Rhine Falls are located on the Rhine River in the town of Neuhausen, near the city of Schaffhausen {where I lived}, Switzerland.
They are the most beautiful falls I've ever seen and make for a very cool afternoon adventure.

I visited the Rhine Falls numerous times while living so close. I swear everytime someone came to visit us we took them to see and walk around the falls. We also took our visitors on the available boat rides up the Rhine to see the falls up close. It's very exciting to get that close to them. It looks like a thick, white blanket that might be hiding a secret world {at least that's how my kids described it}. 
There are several walking trails, an adventure park, kids playground, restaurants, ice cream stands, gift shops and so much more. Some days I would go just to have a peaceful afternoon or for the kids to have a playdate with friends. You'd think a place like this would always be packed with tourist, however that is not the case. We figured out the best times to go for a relaxing and quiet day at the falls. 

This was Jakob's first time at the Rhine Falls, a wee four days old. My mom was visiting since I had him, so of course I chose this to be little man's first big outing. 
I hope if you're ever in Central Europe you have the opportunity to visit this very beautiful and special attraction.

  14. This place looks AMAZING and look at you babywearing like a pro! I have got to add this place to my bucket list. I am really inspired to travel with my kids. Often people say it's hard and maybe it is but I see moms like you and I think, I can do it. I know you lived close and all but still, couldn't have always been easy. It's all about the experience though, right? Thank you for sharing at #MommyMeetUpMondays.
