The water of the Röthbach falls crashes at the Röthwand 470m roaring into the depths. This makes it the highest waterfall in Germany. He remained spared by tourist development largely, probably due to its not very convenient accessibility: Who wants to see the Röthbachfall crosses the Königssee by boat and wanders from the boat Salet about an hour past the Fischunkelalm.
The Röthbachfall is fed from water of the Steinerne Meers, the amount of water is dependent on precipitation and snow. It has a lot of water, especially in the spring, and very little water in the fall. The amounts of water seep into the boggy pastures of the Fischunkel, from where they feed the Obersee underground. Only at the foot of the waterfall a small lake forms to melt snow.

Approximately 470 meters, the Röthbach falls on the mountain flank in the depth and is thus Germany's highest waterfall.
If you want to Röthbach waterfall, you have to translate from Schönau am Königssee by boat to Salet.
If you walk from the pier in the direction of Obersee, you can see in the background the Röthbach waterfall.

Here, too, you have several options to approach the waterfall ... We used the classic (easy) hiking trail. There are also other trails that go beyond normal flatland hiking. Be sure to take a look at the hiking maps beforehand so that you know what to expect.
The view from below and a little further was enough for us.
