"Open your eyes" on the high black forest premium hiking trails. Because on every way there is a stamp point in the form of a cuckoo clock. These offer the opportunity to document the hikes by stamp in the Hochschwarzwälder Wanderpass. Further information can be found at https://www.hochschwarzwald.de/Wandern/wanderpass

Todtnauberg, Busstation Sternen

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour across from Hebelhof and follow the path down to meadow springs. Shortly after getting there, a dirt trail forks to the right and winds downhill. We leave the woods and cross the meadow below the old ski jump. The downward path there curves into the woods after a few meters. The character of the brook valley quickly starts to change into that of a real ravine, and the serpentine trail features many bridges and steps. After approx. 1.5 km, the slope becomes less steep and the ravine becomes broader. We reach the B317 at the national training center (Bundesleistungszentrum). Cross the highway and follow the signposts. From here on, there are delightful paths, blooming meadows, and animal pastures to enjoy. We walk right towards the mountainside and dip into the woods before suddenly arriving at the Fahl Waterfalls. If you’ve never seen the 50 m high waterfall before, do plan enough time. After the waterfall, a level path leads to Todtnau. Follow the course of the valley and walk towards Brandenberg. The war memorial is reached via Todtnau. Soon you will be standing under Germany’s highest, natural waterfall (97 m).The climb proceeds under the cascade. Walk up the steps and continue in the direction of Todtnauberg. The waterfall trail becomes steep now and ends in a small health resort, at Hotel Sternen (bus stop). After arriving at your destination, take the bus to Todtnau and from there back to Feldbergerpass.

Sind den Weg ab den Fahler Wasserfall gelaufen. Insgesamt eine schöne Wanderung aber mit Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten. Weg führt von den Fahler Wasserfällen bis nach Todtnau oft so nah an der Strasse, dass man den ganzen Verkehr hört. Man könnte einen Weg um Todtnau wählen, der nicht durchs Dorf führt sondern am Berg entlang durch den Wald. Die Steigung am Schluss ist nicht ohne, aber lohnenswert. Tolle Wanderung!
