At 500 feet Triberg Waterfall in the town of Triberg is Germany's highest falls and probably one of the prettiest. To enjoy the falls be sure you have on good nonskid boots or shoes and be prepared to walk UP!
You can park at Scheffelplatz entrance and it's a 5 minute downhill walk. Or do like we did and park in the center of the town at Haupteingang and walk up. According to the sign it's a 2 minute walk. Not sure about that. When your huffing and puffing your way up it seems a lot farther.
But well worth the effort!

Into the Black Forest
From the top of the waterfall we took the trail through the woods.
This is in my mind what the Black Forest should look like. Dark and damp with large rocks covered in moss. I can just see Little Red Riding Hood walking this path with her basket of goodies while the wolf lurks behind a tree.
A bird we encountered on the trail. I've never seen one like this. All grey with some white, black and a touch of blue on his wing. The bird was about 8" long. Anyone know what kind of bird this is?
From the very top of the trail looking down.
The Triberg Waterfall will cost you € 3,50 a person but it's well worth the cost.
If you don't want to pay you can see a glimpse of the falls through the trees near the lower entrance.
But why do that?
Pay the money, lace up your shoes and take a walk!
