Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Upper Bavaria / Schoenau am Koenigssee / Obersee und Röthbachfall
The Röthbachfall (German: Röthbachfall) is the highest waterfall in Germany, with a vertical drop of 470 metres (1540 ft). The waterfall is located in the Berchtesgaden area on the Obersee lake. One way to visit the waterfall is to take the electric boat across lake Königssee to Salet and then to hike up to the Obersee. This remote location has led to the erroneous claim that the highest waterfall in Germany is the more accessible Triberg Waterfall even though Triberg has a drop of only 163 metres.Arrange to visit Obersee und Röthbachfall and other attractions in Schoenau am Koenigssee using our Schoenau am Koenigssee trip planner.
Obersee und Röthbachfall Reviews
Just have a short boat trip to other shore of Königsee and in 1.5 hours you can climb to the wonderful water fall which is the highest in Germany. Enjoy the fresh milk in the hut close to the hiking..... more »
It's simply fantastic walk and the view and dense forest and the layered waterfall reminds one of the views one sees in movie Lord of Rings..the walk around the lake is beautiful and serene...once... more »
I think it's much worthier to get into here than just stop at the church and turn back. The view here is much more beautiful and peaceful. Thank to the god for giving me so nice weather, and I just couldn't stop pressing my camera shutter. I felt so comfortable being here and enjoy the moment. I really really love this place. Hope one day I can come again very soon.
You can see the waterfalls from the lake, but it takes another 30 minutes from the fisherman's hut to get there. We didn't go for it, as the waterfalls looked a little weak, and the lake itself was more than captivating enough.
