HISTORY AND NAMES
- Giessbachfälle is the Official name of this waterfall
We've seen several heights attributed to this waterfall, up to 1982'. Since the Geissbach River loses over 4000' in elevation over its seven mile length, that figure is subject to interpretation. We know from a reliable source that the river drops in excess of 2000 feet in a little over 6 kilometers, that being the last 6 km of it's length. We're guessing that the 1982' figure comes from someone who took the liberty to consider that stretch of stream all one waterfall. The main part of the falls drops 414 meters. After seeing the topographic maps of the falls, we are certain that our figure is the most accurate. The falls begin in earnest at the 980 meter contour and the lake level is 566 meters above sea level.
