    The victory waterfall near Schladern is North Rhine-Westphalia's largest waterfall, which was built in the course of railway construction from Cologne to Gießen in the years 1857 and 1858.
    The loops that win the victory today through the idyllic landscape presented the engineers with some problems. They were solved by energetic interference with nature.
     They blew away pieces of a mountain, gave the river a new run. The original victory loop was shut down and partially filled for the railway line. To compensate for the slope, the waterfall was created, which is today admired by visitors as a "natural spectacle".
    The waterfall pours over a width of 84 meters in several stages over four meters down.
    It is particularly impressive at high tide.

    A waterfall, not natural, but created during railway construction. Nicely located.

    The space on the lookout point under the weather mushroom is ideal for testing a wide-angle lens. The old factory in the victory bow is only good in winter.

    It is the largest waterfall in North Rhine-Westphalia, although artificially created at Eisenbahnsstreckenbau, but picturesque beautiful!

    The Sieg waterfall is in Schladern. You have a wonderful view of it from the Elmores beer garden & lounge in Schladern. Highly recommended when the weather is nice.

    Definitely worth seeing!
    There is an observation tower right by the waterfalls and the Elmores has a beautiful beer garden.
