    Wonderfully suitable for a children's trip. On the top bridge above the waterfall is a dust cover that can be opened. Then the waterfall rushes a lot even when there is little water

    You can damm the waterfall and then let it flow down with a torrent.

    The Sankenbach waterfalls are located southwest of Baiersbronn in the Black Forest. The Sankenbach crashes in several stages more than 40 m over the Karwand of the Sankenbachkessel. The main case is formed by the Eck'schen horizon of the Lower Buntsandstein. Below the waterfall lies on the bottom of the Kars of the once almost silted, but restored by damming Sankenbachsee.

    Due to the 0.65 square kilometer catchment area, the average annual flow rate is less than 3 l / s. From a footbridge above the main level, however, the inflowing water in the small sink above the first drop level above can first be dammed by means of a wooden slider; after opening the slide, the accumulated water then falls down for a while in an increased surge. Below the main case, there are two lower case levels.

    The Sankenbacher waterfalls and their surroundings are designated as a 4.8-acre areal natural monument.

    A waterfall to start yourself (with a small weir). Especially when it is warm ideal for children.

    Above the waterfall is a refuge. Below the waterfall is a shelter with barbecue and fountain

    All paths are very accessible at the moment. The self-triggering waterfall is also a nice toy for adults 😁

    Today (19.05.2018) only accessible to the covered bank. View of the waterfall possible, but it was only possible if you have over signs "overreacted" ... Reason were a few small rivulets on the path and mud .... but there are many slipper-hikers rumturnten but appropriate.

    Was today on Sankenbach but the way to the reservoir across the jetties is unfortunately blocked for technical reasons

    Hello everyone, the way past the waterfall is currently closed. If you plan the tour to Baiersbronn, from Kniebs and want to go by train from Baiersbronn to Freudenstadt, you should plan about 40 minutes more hiking time through the diversion.
    Despite everything, the hike from Kniebis to Baiersbronn is highly recommended.
    As of: june / july 2018.
    Best regards Dieter

    The strenuous climb is rewarded by this sight.
    Careful, it can be slippery or muddy :-)

    Just beautiful. Whether you savor the tranquility down by the lake or hike up to see the waterfalls and from there take a very nice view of the lake - it is definitely worth a visit.

    Dreamlike waterfall! Beautiful, challenging climb to the waterfall. Once at the top, a flap offers the possibility to regulate the amount of water. Not only for children an exciting matter. We were there with three kids (4,5,7) who really enjoyed the climb and the sight.
