    At the rear waterfall, the two source streams of the Hörschbach merge. The water falls first 3 meters in free fall and then over cascades again 9 meters in depth.
    Above the waterfall is a small reservoir, which can be opened by hand to produce a beautiful waterfall even with less water.

    The natural Hörschbach gorge between the Hinteren and Vorderen Wasserfall always runs along the stream along a hiking trail.
    The path is unpaved with a few exceptions and some simple wooden bridges. Even in good weather should be paid attention to good footwear, as the way through many small lateral tributaries is sometimes very slippery. A few times, the (very shallow) brook without bridge over larger and smaller stones must be crossed.

    Here the Hörschbach drops over the "Engelhofer Platte", a compact, solid Steinmergelbank about 5 meters in depth. The softer layers of marl underneath provide less resistance to erosion from stream water and are thus removed much faster, creating the beautiful waterfall.
    Even in winter when the waterfall partly or sometimes even almost completely freezes and snow is absolutely worth seeing!

    The waterfall is easily reached from a parking lot very close by. Of course, he is also very good in touring or Murrhardt involve. And while you're there, do not miss the rest of the Hörschbach gorge. In the gorge, good footwear and sure-footedness are essential.

    For geocachers a wonderful combination and an absolute recommendation. Complete the hike in conjunction with the Earthcache GC1XE83. A nature experience of a special kind.

    Opportunity to stop in the "waterfall restaurant". The waterfall road meets exactly this stop. If you put one lap back, it's pretty much in the middle of the track.

    Above the waterfall there is a slide to open. After opening the slide at the reservoir above the Hinterer Hörschbach waterfall, the masses of water pour with roar on the steep slope.

    The approximately five meters high horseshoe-shaped "front waterfall" is right at the beginning of the valley.
    The Hörschbach is a with its longer upper reaches Mähderbach a good 5 km long stream in the Rems-Murr-Kreis, which flows into the Murr. The right source creek is called Langenwaldbach. He is widely known for 2 waterfalls, the upper back and the lower front waterfall.
    It rises in the southern Murrhardt forest and runs quite consistently in a northerly direction. He feeds on 2 streams, of which the left Mähderbach is called and the right Langenwaldbach, at the very top perhaps also Mähderbach; both arise on the plateau of the Murrhardt forest. The water of the left creek consists mostly of clarified waste water of the community Sechselberg, since the creek of the sewage treatment plant serves as a receiving water. The brooks flow on both sides of the Hörschhof in a northerly direction, until they begin after about 1 km run at the edge of the forest to cut deeply into the plateau. The steep gradient at these spots gave rise to the erection of two sawmills, the Rottmannsberger Sägmühle on the left and the Hörschhöfer Sägmühle on the right-hand stream.
    Within the next 600 m, both streams lose 40 m in height and unite at the rear waterfall. Here, the left stream falls over a hard sandstone bank first 3 m in free fall and then in cascades another 9 m in depth. Once at the bottom, he meets the right stream, which plunges into the gorge via its own, smaller waterfall. On the left stream is directly above the waterfall, a reservoir, which can be emptied with a small flap to observe even at low tide for a short time impressive, waterfalls staggered by staggered falls.
    The now unified stream flows north through a narrow gorge on. On this 2 km long section he is accompanied by a narrow, unpaved path, which can only be walked on with sturdy shoes and sometimes leads over stepping stones in the water. Hikers are often on this section of the stream as it connects the back with the front waterfall at the bottom of the trail. Here, the Hörschbach falls over a erosion-resistant layer of gypsum Keupers 5 m in a groove in the depth.
    Less than 1 km after the Hörschbach leaves the forest and soon opens in the western settlement area of ​​the city Murrhardt in the coming from the east Murr.

    The most beautiful is the ascent of the Hörschbach gorge after rainfall, when the brook leads properly water. However, then the paths are very slippery.
    After longer dry periods, the paths are better to go, but the waterfalls lose their appeal, when the stream flows only as a trickle.
    It is problematic when the creek floods, then it is difficult to cross the stream, which must be crossed several times without bridges and bridges, dry feet.

    A partly adventurous hiking trail runs through the Hörschbachschlucht with the two waterfalls. I recommend the way either in summer or in winter on frozen ground. You should already be somewhat sure-footed. Definitely a great nature experience.

    Only to be recommended if it is dry, because otherwise it is very muddy. And good shoes, then this is a great trip.

    It is a highly recommended hike (between Vorderer and Hinterer Wasserfall). Otherwise, you can still do some tours in the area. I recommend good shoes and hiking poles for easy and safe hike. Very good air and especially pleasant on hot days. Very interesting for children. You can walk almost the entire length through the stream (often over small or larger stones).

    It is located at the upper end of the Hörschbachschlucht. There is also a spur to dam water.

    It is a very beautiful gorge that you should actually explore in good weather. When it rains, it can get very slippery and the water can rise in the gorge. A very nice and quiet nature

    beautiful tour. Our mistake today was only the season, the whole track was icy and thus very dangerous.
    We will run them again in the early summer with probably much less stress ...; )
    the walk itself is a dream.

    The more accessible waterfall in the Hörschbachschlucht. It feels great to stand in the bottom of the cauldron, and anyone who dares (careful, slippery!) Can even walk behind / under the waterfall.

    Beautiful hike along the stream along with great waterfalls. One should wear sturdy shoes, as it can often be very muddy and slippery.
