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.

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.

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.
