The Gütersteiner waterfall falls only about a kilometer north of the much more famous Urach waterfall into the neighboring valley and is much less visited than this one. The waterfall falls in two cascades with a pool in between about 20 meters deep. Due to the high humidity, the vegetation is just as lush as that of his big brother. In earlier times, lime was mined here, which the water washed out here on the short way from the plateau of the Alb and which falls out again in the cascades.

Not quite as spectacular as the nearby Urach waterfall, but with the moss and ferns overgrown Sinterterassen very unspoiled and beautiful to look at.

A smaller but very beautiful waterfall, with benches to rest and drinking water source.

In rainy weather, the way there can be very slippery (especially from "above" coming.) In summer, the waterfall relatively little water - better come in the spring.

10 km Tour Wasserfallsteig, a great and impressive tour up the Bad Uracher waterfall, over the slide rock and the Gütensteiner waterfall back to the parking Meisental. Thumbs up !!

Right next to the waterfall is the Gütersteiner chapel, which is also worth a visit!

Beautiful and varied landscapes. The falls are worth a trip and a few hundred meters climb! You have to have seen that.

Formed over millions of years from tufa, the waterfall presents itself in many forms. Refreshing caverns in the tuff, gullies and the typical tufa cascades with their mossy "noses".

With one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area. Best after a few days of rain.

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.

Again, if you are not afraid of cold water, shoes and socks out and in there!

Is beautiful there. The little chapel still look, then you can still up to the foal farm.

In the waterfalls is a chapel as a souvenir that here once stood an old monastery.
I like the Gütersteiner waterfalls better than the Urach waterfalls.

Very varied tour in Neuhausen ends. From there you can with the Ermstalbahn always 13 minutes after the hour, or back to Bad Urach by bus.

If you hike to the Uracher waterfall and bring some time with you, you can take a circular hike from the Uracher waterfall to the Gütersteiner waterfall.
A small waterfall but still an impressive natural spectacle of how the water makes its way.
A very nice place for a short rest.
The Güterstein chapel is also worth a visit.
The Gütersteiner waterfall is located around 1500 meters northwest of the Urach waterfall in the Maisental, a side valley of the Erms, two kilometers southwest of Bad Urach. It falls into the end of a valley, in which the Charterhouse Güterstein once stood. The waterfall is divided in two by an artificial basin.

The Gütersteiner waterfalls are at least as beautiful as the Urach waterfalls. The best thing is to walk the waterfall path and visit both waterfalls.

The track is currently closed because of a landslide.

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.

Access via Wasserfallsteig can be very slippery in previous rain.
