Falling intonation is the standard intonation pattern in German. There doesn't have to be a special reason to use this pattern for either the sentence end or for marking the end of an important item within the sentence.
In contrary, rising intonation means to alert the listener. If it happens at the end of the sentence, the sentence is a question.
Da kommst du zum Bahnhof. (falling intonation at the end)
Da kommst du zum Bahnhof? (rising intonation at the end)
Within the sentence:
Und obwohl ich es ihm erklärt hatte, fand er den Bahnhof nicht.
Here you could rise at wohl and klärt to put a special alert on these facts.
