What did she look like?

She always reflected the image of your heart’s desire and could become any of these instantly:

Interesting collection of faces. Google seems to have a taste for brown hair and somewhat Mediterranean features.

Wouldn't work. She'd be only two minutes across from Germany, but four minutes away from Switzerland, so even if she turned around, the guard would see she was too far across, and he would have seen her on his previous check. The volley of shots rings out, and her lifeless corpse falls into the river...


Oops, misread the question...

hmmm I may have been a bit too simplistic, she would in fact have to time it pretty well, but if she went to exactly half way she should be ok.
