    After each bend of the path is followed by a new highlight - just great.

    In the winter also very nice. But sometimes it can be very smooth!

    Steep path along the waterfalls. Rocky and cool, with many wooden bridges over the rushing water. It's great fun for kids to walk barefoot, but it's very cold. A pleasure in every season.

    Since 2017 also in the lower area a lovely lovingly landscaped nature trail. Gertelbach waterfalls are just great and exhausting.

    Very beautifully designed path along the Gertelbach with a refuge and many rest options.
    Ideal destination for hot summer days, but no less beautiful in other seasons.
    Since there are several small tributaries, it can be slippery in several places, so good footwear is recommended.

    Steep climb and rewards at every point. Here is a great rock formation as a waterfall and who looks exactly finds the stone underpass on the left side of the stream bed at the rise.

    Very strenuous climb. Sturdy footwear should be available. In hot weather, you can cool off in the ice-cold stream.

    Great scenery with a very nice trail always along the stream; the last part of the way (after the hut) is the steepest; Also nice for families with children and very popular with photographers.

    Great in warm weather as it remains relatively cool in the gorge even in summer. The direction of the gorge is best up, the descent is rather unpleasant because of many high levels.

    Very nice path always on the water. Designed with a lot of effort close to nature and in good condition.

    A highlight bad. From the lower part to the very top you can see the play of the water very nice.

    Definitely a great hike, but if you walk down somewhere for a long time, you have to go up again at some point ;-) And the climb back to the starting point is tough! Not really recommended with very small children, but our sons survived it well, the dog is still alive. Conclusion: gladly again!

    Magnificent little valley with a stream that plunges into the deep over several small waterfalls. Perfect for running on warm days. Surefootedness is urgently required as it goes over hill and dale
    Good physical condition required.

    Very beautiful, rustic waterfalls and a good starting point for a hike, for example to the Mehliskopf, about 6 km away
