The Geroldsau Waterfall (German: Geroldsauer Wasserfall) is a roughly six-metre-high waterfall on the Grobbach stream south of the Baden-Baden quarter of Geroldsau in the Northern Black Forest.Using our online itinerary creator, Baden-Baden attractions like Geroldsau Waterfall can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
The Grobbach rises on the rainy western slopes of the northern Black Forest at a height of about 800 m above NN on the Black Forest High Road near Plättig/Bühlerhöhe. It flows northwards and merges before the waterfall with the Harzbach, which, together with its two tributaries, drains the northwestern slopes of the Badener Höhe. At the waterfall the Grobbach has an average flow rate of 0.56 m³/s. It drops here from about 291 m above NHN down to about 285 m. into a small rock bowl. After about a kilometre the V-shaped valley widens into the broad valley bottom of Geroldsau. At its confluence with the Oos in Lichtental the Grobbach is bigger and longer than the Oos.

Lovely place to walk around flowing cold water . Waterfall is very small though. You can take your car till waterfall or park on roads and the walk to enjoy view.
Small water fall but good for hiking. There is a parking 800m away if one likes to hike to the waterfall and another car parking very close to the waterfall. Children can easily walk to the waterfall from nearest parking.
