Triberg is located in the heart of the Black Forest at an altitude of 600 to 1,000 m, where Germany's highest waterfalls tumble down to the valley over genuine primeval rock and the famous Black Forest Railway runs through the mountains. The hand-carved town hall, the pilgrimage church and the local history museum are all worth a visit. The youth hostel is located on the outskirts of town on a ridge at 840m. It is about 45 minutes' walk from the railway station (altitude difference 120 m).
