“Interesting attraction”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is a beautiful waterfall. It is not Niagara Falls, but is scenic. There are some short trails to hike up and around the falls and a play area at the base near the town.

“A must see”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you are in the area this is a 'must see' attraction where the entrance is positioned at the top of the village and only cost 3.50 euros each(May 2013). There is a good path all the way but it is a little steep in places and would be slippery if very wet, however there are steep sections you can avoid using longer loops.
The falls are actually several drops and there are observation points at strategic places for photographs and a good view. The walkway is not covered, although there are trees around, so if rainy an umbrella would be useful.
However the falls themselves are spectacular and you can walk all the way to the top and either come straight back down or take other paths and make a slightly longer walk, there are other activities for children there as well.

I love waterfalls, but I didn't see very many of them during our stay in Europe. So, this was nice. They are billed as one of the highest waterfalls in Germany, but just know that it isn't one straight drop, but 7 smaller ones. It's still quite pretty, though. The walk is on a paved path. I wouldn't call it difficult, but it may be too hard for small children or older people. My daughter bought peanuts to feed the squirrels, but was disappointed that she didn't see any at all. We got the combo ticket with the Swartzwalder Museum, and I think it was worth it.

“2nd Highest Falls in Germany”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The falls and the town make for a pleasant half day excursion. The falls have a variety of trails to them with varying difficulty. Bring peanuts for the squirrels. After the falls go down and walk through the town and window shop. The Coocoo clocks are rediiculously overpriced.

“Very nice, but weather wasn't very good”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The falls were nice. Seen bigger. Seen smaller. You can feed squirrels, but they don't come eat out of your hands, if that's what you're hoping for, but you can get them in fairly close.
