The falls claim to fame as Germany's highest but it's not a continuous freefall. It's more a series of falls connected by small pools. It's still a nice and easy hike. Local hotels seem to offer free passes, so check with your hotel first and...More

Easily accessible, and worth the time to enjoy the sight and get into the woods a bit. As expected, water volumes vary significantly throughout the year.

The walk and path is good... waterfall view is also very nice! It was easy to climb with even my 4 yr old.

We took a walk from the 2nd parking place, so we started walking from the 2nd top of the Waterfalls. Beautiful area, there's so many Waterfalls from big to small..

No. I can’t remember how much it is. But I know it’s not much. Maybe around 5 euros a person.
