Spring by Staubbachfall
Switzerland

This panorama shows a water spring next to the Staubbach Falls, a very popular destination for the many walkers in the area to get a fresh drink of cold water.  These type of springs are very common across Switzerland and provide great opportunities to have a fresh, delicious drink of water while you are on your way. They run continously and anyone coming by can have a drink or fill up their water bottle.

The Staubbach Falls (in German: Staubbachfall), is at 300m the longest waterfall in Switzerland and one of the 72 waterfalls in the spectactular valley.  The waterfall is located very close to the town of Lauterbrunnen, which is not only the entrance to the spectacular valley, but is also the gateway to the surrounding beautiful mountain villages of Wengen, Murren, and the train ride up to Jungfrau. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Switzerland!

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
