I visited the park and waterfalls in early January, a nice experience, almost no visitors. Prepare for considerable difference of heights, climb to the upper parking lot is physically demanding. But you do not need to go that far and high just to come to the water plant. I recommend the route in the pictures, you'll save in winter period... More

The waterfall isn't exactly spectacular, but it is beautiful and soothing. The hike is not very difficult and there are many checkpoints where one can stop and take amazing photos. Many elders were also climbing the waterfall. Triberg waterfall can be easily reached by regional DBahn ticket then walking 1.5 km (which I recommend) or taking a tourist bus.

Triberg is a great little village to visit and this is a nice little diversion from eating and shopping. The hike can be a bit strenuous if you take the direct route, but you're never far from the sound of the falls and the views and smells in the forest are beautiful. We went in Winter and there was a... More

Triberger Waterfall (48° 07'43.55"N 8°13'50.16"E) is identified as the Germany's Highest Waterfalls. The place is very popular, heavily visited and well organized. There are 2 routes to the waterfalls; easy and difficult.

This is a must while visiting Triberg. The waterfall and surrounding scenic views are amazing. Be prepared to walk, very steep, but worth it in the end. Wear comfortable shoes, trust me you will be glad you did.

Too cold! Beautiful small village, when we visited the waterfalls was snowing so it wasn't possible to go up to the last level. Tip.. Best period to visit on Christmas there are million Christmas lamps and the landscape is magical.

Triberg is a town in the Black Forest famous for two things. The first is its many shops selling cuckoo clocks, some of which are huge emporiums with a wide range of clocks, most are pretty kitsch and frankly tasteless but some are quite tasteful. There is wide range of prices to suit every budget. The second is the Triberger... More
