Der Fall des Wassers

Der Fall des Wassers
Perhaps you could fill a few bathtubs within minutes with the water of the Kapellbach, which falls over the rocks here.


With the water of the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen, however, you could fill more than 4200 bathtubs with a capacity of 140 liters – per second. The Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen with its 23 meters are not very high, but they are 150 meters wide. And this makes the Rhine Falls one of the largest waterfalls in Europe.

However, the Rhine only reaches its discharge volume of 600,000 litres per second in summer. In winter, a lot of water remains in the mountains in the form of snow and ice. Then only 250,000 litres flow down the Rhine Falls. And then it is also very quiet at the Kapellbach waterfall.
