Germany's roaring waterfalls

Hiking Collection by komoot

Where rivers suddenly vanish into thin air, where the water is roaring down vertically, leaving tiny drops of water hanging in the air – there's always a bit of magic in the air. Time seems to stand still and you suddenly are aware of the incredible forces of nature. Down below, the water masses are reuniting and continue their way through the country, as if nothing happened. Waterfalls will always captivate us. And they are closer to you than you think. Here's our collection of the most beautiful falls in Germany.

    Triberger Wasserfälle

    Hiking Highlight

    The highest waterfall in Germany! In the middle of nature, but still located right next to the center of Triberg, the amounts of water plummet over 163 meters. However, word has spread outside the local borders that there is something to see here. Therefore, I recommend coming in the evening or earlier in the morning when there is less going on.

    Admission: 4.50 euros. Admission is even free with the local guest card.

    Todtnauer Wasserfall

    Hiking Highlight

    In the heart of the Black Forest, the water of the Stübenbächles shoots 97 meters through the gorge into the depths. Along the roaring waterfall meandering mountain trails lead over stairs, bridges and footbridges. The entry can be made from above or below. If you like, you can go on hiking to the Fahler Wasserfall or Todtnau.

    In the north of Menzenschwand, the Menzenschwander Alb has buried itself in a hard granite rocky rock. When crossing the rock, the river forms several waterfalls. From the side of the gorge, waterfalls plunge into the depths, some of which have been artificially created.

    Röthbachfall

    Hiking Highlight

    The water of the Röthbach falls crashes at the Röthwand 470m roaring into the depths. This makes it the highest waterfall in Germany. He remained spared by tourist development largely, probably due to its not very convenient accessibility: Who wants to see the Röthbachfall crosses the Königssee by boat and wanders from the boat Salet about an hour past the Fischunkelalm.

    The Röthbachfall is fed from water of the Steinerne Meers, the amount of water is dependent on precipitation and snow. It has a lot of water, especially in the spring, and very little water in the fall. The amounts of water seep into the boggy pastures of the Fischunkel, from where they feed the Obersee underground. Only at the foot of the waterfall a small lake forms to melt snow.

    The Leutasch Gorge near the Austrian border is in itself an impressive natural spectacle. A total of three paths lead into it. The most spectacular of these is the Wasserfallsteig, which is only open in the warm summer months. While you walk over the 130 year old wooden footbridge, the masses of water rush past below. At the end of the gorge is the 23 meter high and again impressive waterfall.

    A huge raging waterfall. Here the Zipfelbach rushes 300 meters into the depths over several falls. Here you can hike with the whole family in about two hours along the waterfall to the Zipfelsaple, although the start is a bit more demanding. Or you can follow the round of the Bear Path (approx. 2.5 hours). The slope of the waterfall is a sunny slope, making it one of the first routes that can be walked in spring.

    There is a parking lot in Hinterstein right after the church, from where you can already see the waterfall and reach it in 15 minutes on foot.

    Trusetaler Wasserfall

    Hiking Highlight

    Almost as impressive as the waterfall itself is the fact that it is artificially created. From April to October, a part of the Trusewasser is diverted over 3.5km, in the end rushing 58 meters tossing into the depths. Who likes climbs the waterfall over 228 steps to the top of the rock tower.
