The Gütersteiner waterfall falls only about one kilometer north of the main well-known Urach waterfall in the neighboring valley in depth and is much less visited than this. The waterfall falls in 2 cascades with an intermediate pool about 20 meters in depth. The vegetation is similar lush as its big brother due to the high humidity. In former times lime was mined here, which the water washed out on the short way from the plateau of the Alb here and which fails again in the cascades.

2nd tour around Bad Urach, this time via castle ruins and a bit stretched out the back! Unfortunately, hardly any water at both waterfalls, but many colors, 25 ° - just a charming day. The tour offers everything to profile, what you want for a nice hike. Between km 10 and km 14 no human soul seen, with the section between 12 and 13.5 km is not quite so nice, because you hear a little from the road.
From km 1.4, the ascent to the castle ruins begins on a forest path. At the top one is then sweaty.

Pretty much everyone knows the "Urach Waterfall", whereas the "Gütersteiner Waterfalls" are far less known, even though they are only about 1km away from the "Urach Waterfall", they are much less visited, which I can not really understand. Impressive are both, the one by its height and the amount of water that falls down, the other by its incredibly beautiful terraces, and the vegetation along the watercourse.
