Foto Friday – Where, When, Why #24

Happy Friday! Welcome back to our weekly feature – Foto Friday – Where, When, Why (“FFWWW“), a forum for all of us to share our favorite travel photos and the stories behind them.

TravelWhimsy and I are honored to share a photo sent to us by our dear friend and reader Art, who will take us to the old town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland.

TravelByPoints Foto Friday – Where, When, Why #24 (Schaffhausen, Switzerland)

  • Where: Schaffhausen, Switzerland (View from the Munot Fortress)
  • When:  March 2012
  • Why: Art writes, “We went to Schaffhausen for the Rhine Falls, the biggest waterfall in Europe. We thought that it was going to be the highlight of our trip to northern Switzerland, but we were wrong. Munot, Schaffhausen’s symbol, is a circular 16th-century fortress surrounded by vineyards. We took a walk from the main train station through the Old Town and hiked up to the top of Munot. The view was breathtaking, and we enjoyed it even more than the Rhine Falls.”
