Trusetal Waterfall

Trusetal Waterfall


Natural monument from the 19th century

The wild and romantic Trusetal Waterfall is located in the Thuringian Forest near Trusetal and is a popular destination. The waterfall was artificially created in 1865 to match the mighty rocks in the narrow valley of the Truse River. Today’s natural monument blends harmoniously into the forest landscape. From April to October, part of the Truse river is diverted via Hübelsberg and Halbstein. In three cascades, the water plunges 58 metres down rock towers of volcanic activity and is then channelled into the river. Visitors can climb the waterfall via 228 steps and marvel at it from close range.
