    Admittedly, waterfalls is a little over the top, but that's the name of it. Stuttgart continuously suffered from a lack of water, so the water from the park lakes above - Pfaffen-, Bären- and Neuer See - was channeled directly to the Stuttgart river, the Nesenbach, via the Herzog-Christoph-Stollen, which was artificially created until 1575 (Cannstatt, Stuttgart is located on the Neckar is on the Nesenbach - do you guess where I'm from?). Then these waterfalls were created.

    Quite nice to look at, a beautiful path leads down from it and, since the water disappears again in a tunnel below the railway line, which was later built, again steeply uphill.

    Be careful not to walk easily, slippery. The waterfalls are particularly attractive after days of heavy rain. Nice continuation on the other side of the railway line, along the Bächles through the Heideklinge in the direction of Nesenbach.

    Nice Sunday afternoon walk for the whole family with children from 6 years. It has a few unpaved roads, so that adventure can come up. All in all, everything is fine and not too long.

    The Heslacher waterfalls are located in the Heidenklinge, a steeply cut wooded valley in the district of Stuttgart Heslach. They originated when, to improve the supply of the Stuttgart city brook Nesenbach spring water of the Upper Glems in Stuttgart Pfaffenwald diverted, collected in the local park lakes and then derived via the Christophstollen to Heidenklinge, from where the water ran down the natural gradient following in Nesenbachtal.

    Hidden in the forest are these waterfalls. A real insider tip.

    At first I see a nice tour. Starting point and waterfalls are very nice. Then unfortunately, towards the end of the tour, along roads and through residential area.
    Attention, some parts definitely not suitable for prams!
    Waterfalls are difficult to tackle, as they are slippery and level.

    Nice little piece of hiking trail. At the moment the waterfall is more of a trickle.

    The signs at the lower entrance had been moved to the side, but the top was still locked.
    And not wrongly, since the path has suffered a lot and the risk of accidents in this state should not be underestimated.

    Currently (18.05.2019) the access to the waterfalls was blocked. Duration unknown, as no information available.

    Nice here, but that's no reason to re-create the existing highlight.

    Beautiful path by the water ... the "waterfalls" are also a visual highlight ... at the moment the way is indefinitely closed 🤨☺️

    Really nice, only at the moment the path is cordoned off with barrier tape.

    The path is currently closed, but we came from below and the fences were set aside and there was no sign so that we walked along the waterfall, a not too dangerous affair, it was all very slippery and slushy. We only saw above that the route is closed.

    Very disappointing. Garbage is everywhere, it is totally loud from the highway, the waterfalls are about 50 cm high and have little water (it rained extensively yesterday). Next time I'll take a closer look at the photos of the route.

    On this leisurely and less demanding hiking route, these sections through the gorge of the Heslach waterfalls are really worth seeing. Unfortunately, officially closed due to slippery and damaged sections of the trail, many hikers risk hiking through it.
