Uracher Wasserfall – Urach Waterfall
The Uracher Wasserfall, or Urach Waterfall, is the most beautiful (and therefore famous) waterfall in the Swabian Albs. From 37 meters (121 feet) above, the water falls freely into a deep pool that spills over into a stream that runs down into the valley. Climb the steps by the side of the falls up to the top to find a high meadow. There you can walk across the bridge that spans the water for another striking view. There is also a refreshment hut which offers regional products during peak season (from April to mid-October).
The waterfall is just one attraction of the UNESCO Global Geopark Swabian Alb. There are wonderful hikes through many parts of this region of untouched nature. You can also get stunning views from the site of the Hohenurach ruins. Plus, nearby Bad Urach has minerals spas, outlet shopping, and medieval sights.
