– Lifeline river from the mountains to the sea –

A river has a life of its own. Sometimes it flows as a mighty stream through floodplain forests and is home to rare kingfishers, beavers, grass snakes and exciting other amphibians. And sometimes it falls 23 meters into the depth like the Rhine in Schaffhausen, which flows from the Alps into Lake Constance at Bregenz and leaves the lake again via the Constance Funnel and the Untersee around the island of Reichenau. Sustainable flood protection is only possible if rivers can run their course renaturated.
