    The Geroldsauer waterfall is worth especially if the surrounding rhododendrons unfold their flower splendor and transform the whole 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!

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

    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.

    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 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 ... 🚗🚙

    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.

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

    Nice little round you should take with you when you have to drive on the Black Forest Road.

    A pleasant place to stay in summer. You can walk the path directly along the Grobbach, it's nice to walk. The Cabin by the Falls is a lovely place to take a break.
    In winter, nature conjures up particularly beautiful ice sculptures and it's not that crowded. The Bütthof also offers the opportunity to strengthen yourself. After that, there are no other options that can be hiked.
    A place to visit often!

    I can only underline the tip to come as early as possible in the morning.
    The path directly along the Grobbach can be quite muddy and wet if the weather is right. It is better to walk here with appropriate shoes.

    Very beautiful river landscape, with a rippling brook. It is especially nice to hike there in the morning when the sun is shining in the valley.
