    This ten kilometer long hike leads into the wildly romantic Hörschbachschlucht. The path to the waterfalls is not suitable for prams or wheelchairs. In particular, the section through the ravine along the Hörschbach is demanding and accessible only with good footwear. At the end of this good three-hour hike Murrhardt offers numerous inns and cultural highlights.A starting point is in the middle of Murrhardt, at the nature park center on the market place, which is also worth a visit. Past the cemetery with the Walterichskirche on the Rems-Murr trail with a beautiful view of Murrhardt up the slope towards Waltersberg. The route continues - still on the Rems-Murr-trail - steeply down to the Hörschbachtal. There you reach the five meter high horseshoe-shaped front waterfall.Not far from the waterfall is on the road to Trailhof a trail parking lot, which offers itself as an alternative starting point in the hiking tour. Just above the parking lot on Brünnelesweg there is a newly arranged barbecue area. From the front waterfall, it is now a good 2 km upstream on a largely unpaved nature trail to Hinteren waterfall. This falls as a cascade a total of twelve meters in the depth. At the upper end of this waterfall is a reservoir, which can be emptied with a small flap in order to be able to observe an impressive waterfall in the short term even at low tide. The unspoilt Hörschbach gorge is designated as a natural monument and nature reserve.About the Hörschhof sawmill and the restaurant "Zum Wasserfall"
    (tuesday rest day) it goes past the Hoblersberg through the Franzenklinge (nature trail along the stream) back into the valley to Murrhardt.
    After the hike, there is a lot to discover in Murrhardt: the Late Romanesque Walterich Chapel, the Walterich Church or the picturesque buildings in the historic city center. Murrhardt has produced some notable painters presented in the Municipal Art Collection. If you are interested in Central European wildlife or the regional, local and monastic history of Murrhardt, you can contact the Carl-Schweizer
    Museum visit. It is open from Good Friday to All Saints Day.

    The path through the wild Hörschbach gorge between the Vorder and Hinterer Wassefall is great. Good footwear and sure-footedness are required.
    The section highlight is not quite up to Käsbach, which is still about 4km further east. Near the position where the highlight ends is also the inn "Zum Wasserfall", which is also a destination, just follow the path. From the rear waterfall, signs point to the inn.

    He is with his longer upper reaches Mähderbach a good 5 km long stream in the Rems-Murr-Kreis, which flows in Murrhardt from left and south into the Murr. The right source creek is called Langenwaldbach. The Hörschbach is widely known for 2 waterfalls, the upper back and the lower front waterfall.
    The Hörschbach 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 north and east of Sechselberg. 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.

    Yes, a very nice and in warm, dry weather, also pleasant area to stay, take pictures and walk clearly. Especially interesting for children, because you can walk almost all the way through the stream, on sien numerous large and small stones. It is palpable 5 ° - 6 ° C colder than outside the forest. At lower waterfall there is also a well-attended car park.

    Nice area, good for walking with children (almost full length through the stream bed - over the many small and large stones and tree trunks). Especially Wasrfälle are a popular photo motif. The lower (front) waterfall has a well-attended parking lot.

    In warm and dry weather, also with children highly recommended, since you can walk almost the whole way through the stream (over stones and logs). There are many small bridges.

    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.

    very beautiful and natural. Sturdy footwear is strongly recommended, as some unpaved roads, which may be slippery due to the water inflows.

    Good hiking trail, especially for families with children. You can walk almost the whole way through the stream. Hiking poles help and give security.

    Interesting path along the stream, but mostly very wet and muddy. It is therefore advisable to wear fastened shoes and to take hiking poles (as additional security). Also nice for toddlers when they wear rubber boots and then walk in the stream. In some places you have to cross the stream without a bridge.

    One of the most beautiful gorges in the Swabian Forest near Murrhardt. But also not easy to walk, because many slippery areas and the bridges are partly slippery and broken. You should be sure-footed and able to climb sometimes.
