From the elementary school you walk to the former "Gasthof zum Wasserfall." From here you follow the "Wasserfallweg" (waterfall path) north, slightly upwards until you reach the beginning of the Finsterbach canyon. After a few minutes you will quickly see the first waterfall . After taking a few photos, hike up along the left side of the stream around a few curves. After a few minutes you will already be at the second waterfall. The path to the third waterfall begins back on the main path, which you follow up until hitting a fork in the road, where you follow the signs to "3. Wasserfall." This path leads you into the Finsterbach gorge. After a little bit you cross a few small bridges over a stream and arrive at the third waterfall, the biggest of the three.

Follow the same route to get back to the starting point.
