Inspired by the imposing rock backdrop of granite and pophyr in the narrow Kerbtal of the Truse, the wild and romantic waterfall was created in 1865 - a natural monument.From April to October part of the Truse water is diverted through a dam below Brotterode and flows with a slight gradient along the Hübelsberg and Halbstein. Over a distance of 3.5 km, the artificially created waterfall ditch meanders naturally and harmoniously through the forest landscape. At the point where the piles of rock from volcanic activity emerge particularly vividly and strikingly, the water rushes in three cascades, thundering 58 meters into a collecting basin, before it then takes its way again in the actual river bed. You have to overcome 228 steps to climb the waterfall.
