“Natural escape near the city”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

My husband and I came out here early Feb, but it was still beautiful. We parked in the free lots close to the start of the trail - we turned right off the main road right at the Wasserfall train stop. The fall was not frozen, but flowing around still-green moss and plants. As others has said, it's an easy trek up to the top of the falls with good shoes and the view is beautiful. Took us about an hour in and back as we took our time, took pics, and stopped a lot. At the top in the summer there appears to be biergartens and perhaps an event station, many other trail heads as well. Unfortunately the bathrooms were locked at the top, but I can image this would be a beautiful place to see in the spring. There was a surprising amount of people here for a wintery Sunday. The sun came out for a sec, enough time to view the castle ruins on the opposite mountain and the green valleys. After leaving, keep heading south to the town of Bad Urach, there is a museum (open on Sundays) and a very cute town with restaurants open. We will be going back for sure to hike up to the ruins and the other trails, it is very extensive!

“Bad Urach's tour”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

I recently went for a trekking tour in Bad Urach. The route included of course the waterfall. To reach it you just have to follow a path along the stream for about 15-20 minutes.
Though very narrow the waterfall makes quite an impression and stands up in the surrounding green. Very cleverly along the way one can find benches to just sit and enjoy the view. And up there, and the top of the waterfall there are plenty of desks for those who want to take their breath or have a snack.
However the waterfall itself wasn't enough for me, our tour took us from the waterfall to the ruins of the old castle and then back to the parking place.
A great Saturday!

“Beautiful and relaxing”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

A wonderful way to relax, walking to the falls and along the trails in the area. Truly beautiful scenic area, worth visiting. It is good for all ages. The main trail to the falls follows a lovely stream. Visit Bad Urach later for ice cream!

“An easy walk and climb to a very cool waterfall!”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

Just 20 minutes up -- more if you take photos, which is pretty inevitable -- and one is rewarded with a beautiful cascading waterfall. Easy to find just off the main route with ample parking and well-marked trails.
