    In the heart of the Black Forest, the water of the Stübenbächles shoots 97 meters through the gorge into the depths. Along the roaring waterfall meandering mountain trails lead over stairs, bridges and footbridges. The entry can be made from above or below. If you like, you can go on hiking to the Fahler Wasserfall or Todtnau.

    The waterfall is formed by the Stübenbach ("Stiebender Bach"), which rises in the area of ​​the Stübenwasen in the Feldberggebiet. It first flows through the open to the southwest, dominated by meadows high valley of Todtnauberg. Below the tench slope, the valley floor is wooded, and the stream suddenly plunges into a rocky outcrop with two few meters high drop steps. After a short stretch of the river, a massive tumbling fall of about 12 meters follows. Low slope and branched, he then reaches the open to the south, wide fall edge of about 60 meters high, many times articulated main stage. Above and below, jetties cross the stream. After a final, 4-meter-high heel of Stübenbach rushes another 140 meters initially steeply down to Stiebenmatte and then to the mouth of the Schönenbach.

    At a distance of 300 meters east of the upper drop level is the monolith treasure stone. In this stone not clearly interpreted signs are carved. It is only known that there are mark separator signs on the location of the pits in the area above the waterfall. On a way from Aftersteg to the waterfalls is located halfway a Mariengrotte.

    A very impressive spectacle of nature as the water plunges 97 meters down. The waterfall can be visited from two sides. From above and from below. From the top of Todtnau mountain is not so crowded for parking, but then you have the entire mountain (waterfall) back up. Which is very nice but also exhausting. From the bottom there is more but also full parking and does not necessarily have to go up. But everyone as he pleases.

    In winter, with plenty of meltwater, the first two stages are very impressive.

    Here you get a little bit of the violence of the water. Rain jacket is recommended

    Beautiful waterfall. Even though many people are here, there is not much going on at the top. Most shy away from the steep climb across the many simple steps.

    Impressive. In addition to the Triberg waterfalls, the Todtnauer waterfalls are well developed and can be reached very well from large and small on foot.

    The Todtnauer waterfalls are worth a visit, but you should pay attention to the time. Around noon, there are sometimes so many people that you can hardly move or you can shoot a photo without people on it.

    Today without snowmelt unspectacular. But following the path and seeing the rest of the falls is definitely worth it.
