Triberg Lake And Mountain Holidays
Traditional Triberg is renowned for its exceptional cuckoo clocks and for being the home of the original Black Forest Gateau. Germany's highest waterfalls, which can be accessed through a wooded gorge, are one of the region's most visited and popular attractions. The spectacular course of the river over seven cascades is an awe-inspiring sight no tourist should miss. For those interested in Triberg's history and lifestyle, visit the Black Forest Museum which gives an interesting overview on these subjects whilst displaying the local crafts of Triberg.
