On day two of our Black Forest journey, we headed south to Triberg — home of Gutach Falls, the highest waterfall in Germany. I’ve always loved waterfalls, and I’ve never seen a large one, so I was super excited about this destination!
We almost didn’t do it, because EVERY guide book and website that mentioned the falls said that it was about an hour hike with lots of hills, and I didn’t think that our kids could handle that much strenuous walking. However, I was surprised when we walked in the forest to see the falls almost right in front of us. It’s true that walking the entire loop would probably have taken an hour, but the falls would be doable even if you only had 15 minutes. We ended up making it as high as the first bridge over the falls (you can see the wooden bridge near the top of the photo). Even Bunches, age 2, didn’t have any problems with it.
