600,000 liters of water fall 23 meters per second, over a width of 150 meters - the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen is one of the biggest attractions in the Bodensee region and a real natural spectacle.
You take off from Friedrichshafen and fly in the direction of Immenstaad across the lake to the university town of Constance. You can't miss the modern landmark at the harbor entrance, the statue Imperia. A little further west follows the vegetable island of Lake Constance, the island of Reichenau, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there, the route follows the Rhine past Horn, Gaienhofen, Steckborn, Hemmenhofen and Wangen to the beautiful town of Stein am Rhein. After Gailingen and Büsingen you will then catch sight of the Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen. You will be amazed: 600,000 liters of water per second fall 23 meters into the depth - an overwhelming sight. Towards Singen you can enjoy the beautiful view into the Hegau and admire the mighty castle ruins of Hohentwiel and the Hegau volcanic cones. Along the north-western shore of the Bodensee, past Sipplingen and Überlingen follows in Uhldingen-Mühlhofen the Lake Dwelling Museum with 23 originally furnished reconstructions of lake dwellings from the Stone and Bronze Ages. On this route you will also fly over the colorful flower island of Mainau with its butterfly and palm house. You will fly back to Friedrichshafen via Meersburg, Immenstaad and Hagnau.
