    Almost as impressive as the waterfall itself is the fact that it is artificially created. From April to October, a part of the Trusewasser is diverted over 3.5km, in the end rushing 58 meters tossing into the depths. Who likes climbs the waterfall over 228 steps to the top of the rock tower.

    Very nice is also the circular walk. He leads past the take-off point for the waterfall.

    Although artificially created and connected with entry, but above the Teufelskanzel a beautiful view of the Werra Valley.

    You can admire the waterfall for free from the opposite side of the street or you pay € 1.00 and then is very close to the waterfall and can climb a staircase next to the waterfall and walk a circular path.

    It is worth climbing the many levels. The reward is a great circular hike.
    The waterfall no longer costs admission.
    Parking spaces, playgrounds, toilets and a small snack bar are available

    Beautiful waterfall with a bench in the foreground where not only the ice cream tastes good but also the spray from the waterfall cools comfortably.

    The WASSERFALL is artificially created, but definitely worth seeing. You shouldn't be afraid of the ascent, here you get a completely different perspective.

    In 1865, the waterfall was created by Trusetal miners under the supervision of Baurat Specht. The water from the Truse below Brotterode is diverted through a dam. First of all, the 3.5 km long, artificially created waterfall ditch winds with an even, low gradient through the edge of the forest in an arc to the southwest and finally to the northwest towards the district of Laudenbach, then again approaches the actual river valley 500 m before the village in a southern curve. At the Öhmigshauk, the Trusetal waterfall falls first over two smaller falls and then over the granite rocks over 50 m into a collecting basin. The water then flows back into the Truse.
    The Trusetal waterfall is only open from Easter to the end of October each year. In the winter months, the water supply is turned off to prevent frost damage to the rock backdrop. (... from Wiki)
