Caption

The Brühl creek plummets from a height of more than 120 feet (37 meters) into the Maisen Valley just outside of Bad Urach. The water originates from seepage points at the edge of the town Würtingen, located 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) away. It takes approx. 28 hours to reach the waterfall, and dissolves so much lime in this time that many cubic yards of Tuff (approx. 6.5 cubic yards/5 cubic meters per year) form on the Urach waterfall. The Bad Urach waterfall once flowed into the valley in many separate streams and cascades. It has been tamed to a single waterfall by human intervention in 1944. It also used to be a open mine pit to extract the Tuff be used to build churches in the early days. The waterfalls at Bad Urach are one of the most visited in Germany.
