Germany’s highest Waterfall is in the Black Forest

Triberg Waterfalls, Black Forest

A natural spectacle of a special kind is the waterfall in Triberg. Foaming and roaring, the waters of the Gutach river plunge down 163 meters. On the paths along the waterfall cascades, you will experience this magnificent natural wonder.

We informed ourselves at descriptive boards about animals, plants and peculiarities of the waterfall area, We observed the many squirrels along the ways.

Especially when the water melts and after heavy rains, the falling water quantities are enormous. Newly built was a bridge with a platform, that allows to feel the mist of the falls and an exclusive view of the cascades.

The waterfalls are accessible year-round and offer an impressive backdrop even in winter.

Further information on winter opening can be found below. A little tip: Choose one of the three signs posted on routes, and enjoy the natural spectacle on the nature trail, the Kulturweg or the Kaskadenweg.

After hiking the trails of the waterfall you can enjoy a Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte or Black Forest cake at one of these places nearby and stroll the streets of the town Triberg

The main entrance to the waterfalls can be easily reached from the city center by foot. But four more entrances give you the opportunity to reach the waterfalls from all sides. Do you drive by car? Then you will find parking lots in the parking garage in the city center, on the mountain lake, on the Scheffelplatz, or at the Adelheid. The waterfalls are lit in the evening until about 10 pm and you can enjoy a fascinating sight.
