The waterfalls are very impressive - as often written. Due to the "convenient" parking spaces, there is a lot going on, especially on weekends.
Recommendation for people with hiking boots: The legend round is running. Is peppered with impressive places and also easily doable by children.

"The Allerheiligen waterfalls (also called Büttensteiner waterfalls) were opened in 1840. In several stages, the Lierbach falls down a total of 90 m. A circular route leads from the lower parking lot over wooden bridges and steps through the gorge to the Allerheiligen monastery and then via the Engelskanzel-Roßgrund back to the starting point. "Source: badenpage.de/ausflugsziele/ausflugsziele-in-der-region-schwarzwald/allerheiligen.htmlAccording to Wikipedia, "All Saints Waterfalls are the largest natural waterfalls in the northern Black Forest and are located on the district of Oppenau in Baden-Württemberg at about 530 m above sea level. NN. The Grindenbach, the upper reaches of the Lierbach, falls below the Allerheiligen Monastery through a steep porphyry gorge over seven steps, 66 meters in total. Because of the Auskolkungen (Gumpen) under the cataracts the cases are also called Büttensteiner waterfalls or the Sieben Bütten. The surrounding crystalline basement of the northern Black Forest is made up of twig-lattice granite, which tends to cliff formations.The approximately 100-meter-high walls on both sides of the falls, however, consist of even more resistant porphyry, which runs through the area gangway and is cut here by Grindenbach. The fact that the brook from the 4.5 km² catchment area was strong enough to cut such a deep gorge into the rock is due to the very high annual precipitation totals (around 2000 mm / year) and the large incline to the nearby Upper Rhine plain ,The eye-catching cascade staircase shows that in the "laid paper" at the foot of the drop stages the greatest erosion efficiency is effective. Particularly at high tide, cavitation also contributes to this.For centuries the waterfalls belonged to the monastery of All Saints, from whose ruins they are only a few hundred meters away. Only at the beginning of the 19th century was the inaccessible canyon explored with the help of ladders. In 1840, the forestry administration built a path that made the cases accessible via several stairs and bridges.This path also drew public attention to the ruins of the monastery and thus contributed indirectly to securing the remaining walls. The heavily trafficked climb had to be renovated several times and has been a sandstone-brick stairway since 1964.''Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allerheiligen-Wasserfälle
