Der Sibli-Wasserfall

Sibli Waterfall

The 15 meter high Sibli waterfall is located southwest of Lake Tegernsee and can be accessed via the Enterrottach toll road. The cascade waterfall, hidden in the forest, is just a short walk away from the Kistenwinterstube hikers’ car park.

Hiking trail to Sibli Waterfall

From the Kistenwinterstube hiking car park, follow the signposted forest path for half and hour to the waterfall. Around halfway you’ll pass the Sibli winter hut. Here, a narrow hiking trail turns right down to the Sibli waterfall.

In 2019, the steps and access were newly graveled and restored when a visitors book was installed at the Mariengrotte. This cave-like shrine houses a figure of the Virgin Mary and attracts visitors and locals alike.

The waterfall is particularly beautiful in winter when ice formations form around the froth from the water carshing from 15 meters above. Be sure to take extra care in winter as the steps are often icy and slippery.

  1. Can I swim at the waterfall?

    Bathing is neither explicitly forbidden nor allowed. Many hikers use the pools at the waterfall as a refreshing dip on hot days.

  2. Can I visit the Sibli Waterfall in winter?

    Der Wasserfall ist im Winter zugänglich. Allerdings sind die Stufen teils vereist und rutschig.


The Sibli waterfall is hidden in the forest and a beautifully quiet destination most of the year round. The location and accessibility is no doubt a reason for the surprisingly few visitors compared to the nearby Rottachfall. But don’t be fooled: the 15 meter high cascade waterfall is a particularly impressive sight on Lake Tegernsee not to be missed and offers an easy hike.
