    Very pretty waterfall
    Very pretty waterfall. The trail from the main entrance is steep but worth it. Views can be enjoyed from different levels of the trail. The entrance fee of 8 euro is a bit high for a short natural attraction visit.

    Lovely glimpse of the Black Forest
    The waterfall was beautiful, and easily viewed from multiple spots. The paths were well paved and accessible. Nice spots to sit and take it all in. The forest a reflection of the original mix of trees in the Black Forest. I can't compare it to other local options, but enjoyed myself.

    Day trip Triberg waterfalls
    Took my son to Triberg waterfalls. It’s a pleasant walk from Triberg station. The entrance fee to the waterfall also covered entry to the Schwarzwald museum and Triberg fantasy land so I think it’s quite reasonable. It’s a 163cm high waterfall. Made up of many different levels with different views which are all quite pretty. It is quite high and there are other routes to follow. The kiosk also sells peanuts for the squirrels. My son enjoyed reading the boards with facts about the forest. He’s 12 years old and this was something he enjoyed The route has an easy or difficult trail.

    Lovely nature walk around the longest waterfall
    This is a lovely nature walk with well maintained paths. Steep in places. May be slippery when wet. the waterfall is flood lit at dusk. Took great photos and enjoyed the views. The ticket is for all day and gives free entry to other attractions in Triberg.

    Highly Recommend
    Our family had a wonderful time at the Triberg Waterfalls. The hiking was very enjoyable, and can be difficult or easy depending on how high you go. The staff were very friendly and helpful in making sure we knew were informed. There is also a wonderful playground.

    Escapade at Triberg Waterfalls
    A pretty waterfall. Germany’s highest apparently. Is free to visit if you are staying at one of the hotels in the town. Only 30 minutes to 1 hour needed. We walked till the top of the falls and then made a short walk through the nearby woods which was a very nice experience.

Sure the waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous, but for us the experience was a bit ruined by the organization.

We didn't do proper research before visiting the waterfalls, so I'll admit that we were part of the problem too. But after driving up the hill to the (small and paid) parking lot, we walked up to the waterfall and were surprised by the ticket booth.

The lady was quite rude, and didn't really say anything except for the fee. This was, if I remember correctly, around 6 euros. I personally think this is quite a steep price for an activity, which is basically formed by nature. If you're a family of four, the fees and parking costs can really add up.

We decided to pay and enter. Truth be told, they maintained the bridges well. I guess that is in part where the money goes to. Also they have set out 3 routes. The Cascade trail, the culture trail and the nature trail. The signs weren't always clear and we ended up on the nature trail. It was a fun route, because you'll have to do some climbing. But I wouldn't dare call this an actual path, because after you've seen the waterfalls, you'll just sort of have to make your way back up a very rocky hill.

Also, along the way we passed a couple more ticket booths. Maybe they could lower the fee if they didn't have this many people collecting the fees.

The waterfall itself was nice to see. It is high and looks spectacular. I was quickly done with it though, because of how crowded it was. Because of the people, and the very set walking routes, it didn't feel relaxed and I had a hard time enjoying the area.

I would personally recommend visiting the Todnau waterfall instead. It is way less crowded, you'll really get to enjoy the forest and it's not any less beautiful than the Triberg waterfall.

Over-hyped tourist trap, billed as Germanys highest waterfall,

Judging by the entry price for a family of 4, I was expecting something to rival the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, but instead was unfortunately greeted by a walk up a hill and a ‘mildly interesting’ waterfall.

The ‘lake’ included in the ‘red cultural route’ was also an anti-climax, it resembled a provincial duck pond bordered on one side by a road with large trucks thundering by… actually free for all to see anyway, along with the church en-route.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THE PRICE.

The path is all paved though with asphalt and it's not really a true walk into the woods.
The waterfalls are not special but therr are some spots to take picture at them.
I found the ticket to be a little bit pricey, costing 6€

A small walk up towards the waterfall. There are 3 trails through which you can reach at the top. Entry fee to the waterfall is €6 per person. Worth a visit if you are in Triberg, otherwise not a great sight to specially visit Triberg for the waterfalls.

Don't get confused, it's not the highest but rather one of the longest waterfalls in Germany running down over several cascades. Anyway it's beautiful and they built some nice viewing points and bridges to get a good look at it. If go there early in the morning you can avoid the masses huffing and puffing up and down the steep pathways

Glad we stopped even though it was rainy. Parking is inexpensive and located at top and bottom of falls. Can view the falls with a two minute walk from the top parking lot or can walk to the bottom of the falls in 10-20 minutes depending on walking speed. Lots of shops at the bottom of the falls.

The water fall views is amazing and the water is moving with high speeds. There are several parking spots, at the bottom of the water fall, middle of the water fall and the top of the water fall. You kan hike up or down or both from any parking spot. The top part is a bit of steap walk.
