The parking garage is right beside the river and these fun tikis with Bollenhut hats guard the area.
There’s a free public restroom across the bridge there.
To the right of the waterfall entrance, we found Oli’s Cuckoo Clock shop tucked away.
Oli’s is open from Easter until November every day from 10.00 a.m. till 6.00 p.m. In the winter months they are open irregular days and hours, so contact first!
We had a lovely tour of the shop and explanation of cuckoo clocks.
They explained that the “made in China” clocks have a little plastic button on the side. They are not handmade.
The workshop is amazing.
My favorite clocks were made with real mushrooms!
It was a difficult decision to choose a clock!
We finally all liked this one:
We got the family ticket to the Triberg Waterfall. There are several viewing platforms at different intervals and three different trails to follow.
Make sure to buy some popcorn for the birds and squirrels!
The path zigzags up to the top of the falls.
There’s a gazebo with seats for resting or taking pictures.
We watched the birds and squirrels for quite a long time.
This nutcracker bird cracked us up!
There’s this platform to stand on if you climb up this huge rock. It’s the perfect opportunity for a lovely scenic waterfall backdrop.
