Triberg Waterfalls: A Natural Landmark Out of a German Fairy Tale

TRIBERG, Germany – Germany’s Triberg Waterfalls is an enchanting natural spot ranked among the country’s highest and most popular waterfalls.

Boasting a total height of 163 meters (534 feet), the Triberg falls are a landmark in the Black Forest region where the Gutach river plunges over seven major steps passing from a gentle, undulated high plain above into a rocky V-shaped valley below.

The deep valley forms a basin just wide enough for a small Black Forest town called Triberg im Schwarzwald in Baden-Württemberg in the Black Forest, a popular tourist spot that attracts over half a million tourists every year.

The falls are illuminated at night until around 10 pm, offering a breathtaking sight, while in the less spectacular upper part of the falls lies an old hydroelectric power plant.

Although Triberg is often touted as the highest waterfall in Germany, the highest example is actually the Röthbach Waterfall in the southern Bavarian region.

With a vertical drop of 470 meters, that fall is off-limits to ramblers.
