The Röthbach Waterfall (German: Röthbachfall) is the highest waterfall in Germany, with a vertical drop of 470 metres (1540 ft). The waterfall is located in the Berchtesgaden area on the Obersee (Berchtesgaden National Park) lake. The most convenient way to visit the waterfall is to take the electric boat across lake Königssee to Salet and then to hike up to the Obersee. This remote location has led to the erroneous claim that the highest waterfall in Germany is the more accessible Triberg Waterfall even though Triberg has a drop of only 163 metres.
