    The waterfall and the rocks are impressive, really worth a hike!

    Over 32 meters, the water falls directly over the Burgbach rock. The Bächelein meanders through the Burgbachtal and flows into the Wolf. The premium hiking trails "Klösterle loop" leads to the Burgbachwassserfall. Various hiking trails lead to the waterfall. Next to the waterfall is the Burgbachelsen, on which stands a viewing pavilion. From here you have a wonderful panoramic view.

    Very remote. Plan for a bear park / Glaswaldsee. Wolfach Oberwolfach. Or coming from the Kniebis into the Wolftal. Plan free parking for backpacks. There are currently no refreshments and no shopping opportunities. As of April 2020

    According to Wikipedia, ´´The Burgbach waterfall near Bad Rippoldsau-Schapbach in the Black Forest is one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Germany with a free fall height of 15 meters and a total height of 32 meters. The fall level is formed from resistant silicified sandstones of the Upper Rotliegend (Permian), which lie over more easily weathered and clearable granites. The waterfall is classified as a geological natural monument. The Burgbach then flows with a steep gradient to the Wolf.´´

    The Burgbach waterfall is hidden in the forest. But once you have discovered it, everyone gets into raptures.
    Via serpentines and a staircase you reach the Burgbach rock, on which there is a refuge. From here, mine has a wonderful panoramic view.

    beautiful waterfall, looks really great with the greenery around. And it is not very far from the parking lot, even if it goes up a bit.

    very beautiful, idyllic waterfall in the middle of the forest.
    Also not very far from the parking lot, so something for children who don't walk that far yet. Even if there is a few vertical meters on rel. short distance up, also for children. Especially when the goal is a waterfall.

    A great tour. Mostly small forest paths and root paths, very quiet with nice little highlights.
    Refreshments in Zwieselberg at the Hotel Hirsch. About 300 m from the route of the tour.

    The Burgbach waterfall lies dreamily in the Burgbach valley. The water falls over a rock face over 32 meters, making it one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Germany. The Burgbach then flows to the wolf with a steep gradient.
