    The name comes from a legend, according to which a noblewoman was unfaithful to her crusading husband and knight and gave birth to seven - all small, pale and unattractive. In her distress, she ordered her maid to drown the children. On the way to action, however, the maid met the knight, who gave the children in the care of friendly damsels, where the children were educated. When the children were seven, the knight had them tell their story at a big party at his castle. When asked what kind of punishment such a mother deserves, the noblewoman is said to have demanded "to become water and bread". Then the knight executed on him the punishment demanded of his wife against herself. After some time, he is said to have diverted the Gottschlaebbach into his wife's prison to release her from her agony.

    The waterfalls at the noble grave grave near Ottenhöfen have a drop height of 44 meters. The trail is secured and leads over stairs to the waterfalls.
    Past the waterfalls, the hiker comes to a Auskkungshöhle. The legend says that here an unfaithful noblewoman found her violent end.

    On the weekend you can park comfortably in the area of ​​the quarry, as the official parking lot is often crowded. The waterfalls themselves are fantastically mystical ...

    Great hike through wild and romantic scenery with cool and clear waterfalls. Absolutely family-friendly and super varied. Much opportunity to cool off and a steady rise over stick, stone, root and stone. Well secured and top maintained.

    Beautiful climb to the waterfalls. The noble gray grave surprises one in this place with its geschischte.

    The Edelfraugrab begins a whole stretch of waterfalls. The path is well developed and has many stairs in between.

    Unfortunately, the paths sometimes a bit neglected. If you're planning on Komoot over town the program leads to a slope way just above the actual cases. From the Ottenhöfener side this way is blocked (slope demolition danger to life, so keep it in. Is also a grid in front of it.). From above I have not seen any blocking.

    Above the waterfall there is a cupboard with chilled drinks for small and large which invites you to take a break. So strengthened the ascent also works to the rocks. Really a fun place.
