We went through Schwarzwald (the Black Forest) largely because we wanted to try the original Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte at Café Schäfer in Triberg, which we had seen the Hairy Bikers do. It's the nicest Black Forest gateau you'll ever have, by the way! Lots of very nice cakes, and we're still giggling over the American family who complained that the cake was too boozy for their child, which the café's owner barked a "NOT FOR CHILDREN!" in response to.
We had seen signs for "Germany's highest waterfall", so we followed them, as we had no other plans for the day. Turned out to be only a few hundred metres up the road! Parking was €0.60 per 30 minutes and tickets to the waterfalls €3.50 each. You could buy nuts to feed the squirrels as well, but we didn't get any. We should have done, because we saw lots and lots of squirrels, and they could get quite close!
The waterfall is not one great, big waterfall, but a series of smaller ones, which I think is called a cascade waterfall. It's also not Germany's highest/tallest waterfall, because apparently that's somewhere in a really remote, inaccessible place, whereas the Triberger Wasserfälle are a short, walk from a car park.
You don't have to go far to get a good view, but you'll see more if you head up the steep hills. It's exhausting work (hrm, well, if you're at my non-existant fitness level), but you can pause often to take photos!
