    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    The track is currently closed because of a landslide.

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

    At least as beautiful as the Urach waterfall.
    Definitely stop by if you are nearby.

    Access via Wasserfallsteig can be very slippery in previous rain.

    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 !!

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

    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.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    Unfortunately, you should not fill up his drinking stock here, but the cool water is not suitable.

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