The Weißbach Water Falls



A phantastic natural spectacle.

The height of the Weißbach waterfalls is more than 12 metres. The cold mountain waters thunder down across steps and rockets which have been grinded by the ice flow of the last Ice Age. The impressive rustling noise of the water masses can be heard from afar. In ancient cultures waterfalls were seen as gateways to other worlds and to the gods. Till nowadays waterfalls are sources of energy, already on the way to a waterfall you feel it’s exhilarant and recreative effects. The air is humid and pristine you breathe deeply and consciously as if you really could sponge up the energy of the waterfalls.

Amazing waterfalls.

To reach the Weißbach waterfalls you start at the hiker’s parking ground Zwing via the Gletchergarten (glacier gardens). From there a stair leads down into the gorge of the Weißbach. You should be sure of step. Arrived at the bottom you have to step over a pipe. That’s an ancient brine pipe, the very first pipeline of the world, which has been used from 1619 till 1958 to pump brine from Bad Reichenhall to Traunstein. From here it’s only some minutes to walk and you stand directly in front of the waterfalls. What a great sight!

Traces of the Ice Age. 20.000 years ago the mighty branch of a glacier extended through the mountain ravine Zwing into the Inzell valley. After the melting the glacier left the typical traces which can be seen till nowadays: the Gletschergarten with its glacier cutting. Wall charts explain all about giant kettles and glacier mills.

The gorge of the Weißbach. From the Weißbach waterfalls a hiking trail leads through the gorge of the brook Weißbach which has been shaped by an up to 500 m thick ice layer during the last Ice Age. The steep slopes of the gorge are populated by a dense maple tree forest. It is useful to be sure of step and to wear solid shoes. To get back to Inzell take the local bus and thanks to the Chiemgau Card | Ruhpolding & Inzell it’s for free.
