Turn-by-turn directions

Starting at the Barbian town square (830 m) follow the signs to the waterfalls – Wasserfallweg, leading south to Haus Urban. At the turnoff bear right on to trail no. 8, which partly runs along the Höfestraße farms road and then on a footpath across the meadows and through a forest. Before long, the track leads to the Lower Barbian Waterfall (1,000 m). Bear right, crossing over some stones and then follow the steep ascent to the Upper Barbian Waterfall (1,170 m). Surefootedness is essential!

To descend, follow the signs to Barbian on trail no. 6 and head north up a steep slope on the forest track, which is partly secured with cables. Soon after, a wide path opens up leading to Flatschhof farm (1,070 m). Continue on trail no. 6/A following the signs to Barbian through woods and meadows on a slight gradient to the upper side of Barbian and back to the starting point.
