    The Geroldsau waterfall is particularly worthwhile when the surrounding rhododendrons unfold their blossoms and transform the entire valley into a paradise.

  • Beautiful landscape. For me currently the most beautiful thing to find in the region. In the sunshine, the green color of the moss on the rocks and stones is particularly evident. The feet can also be refreshed here: there are many flat spots in front of the waterfall.

  • Sturdy shoes recommended because the way to the water is partly wet to mushy. If you come from the hiking car park Geroldsauer Wasserfall, you walk through the "Rhododendron Valley" to the waterfall. Of course, there is a beautiful circular walk over the Kreuzfelsen with a magnificent view.

  • We were there in the morning. There were just two cars in the parking lot. When we got back to the car around noon, the parking lot was pretty full. So: better start early. Almost alone is beautiful there!

  • The water falls about 6 meters down here. You can look at the small case from below and from above. The path along the Grobbach here is particularly beautiful.

  • Nice destination. Because of the short path, the nearby stream and the refreshments especially well suited for smaller children.

  • Pure nature especially after a rainy season. However, sturdy and waterproof footwear and surefootedness are then required. Recommended in every season.

  • Well worth it in any case, especially if you catch a moment where almost no one is there 😉

  • The waterfalls are easy to reach from the wall car park and there is a cozy restaurant just behind the waterfall. Especially in spring it is worth taking a hike there when the rhododendrons are in bloom. However, it is very crowded on weekends.

  • Really nice area !!

    Warning: if you are looking for solitude, you are wrong here.

    Insanely crowded in midsummer. Although we started at 11 a.m. and only walked a tiny 4km lap, the tour was completely overcrowded and increasingly full.

  • The circular route is simply awesome. Impressive pictures can be taken at any time of the year. The small waterfalls with the mossy surroundings put you in an exotic travel mood.

  • The best start a little earlier ..... 🥾
    at lunchtime, and especially in good weather ☀️are very many on the way.
    The parking lot is pretty crowded from about 11:00 clock ... 🚗🚙

  • Impressive in every season. Who wants to be undisturbed avoids the WE and picks the weekdays or early morning or late at night. ;-)
