Waterfall & Nature
The natural monument “Gainfeldwasserfall” is only a few minutes' walk from the city center. Surrounded by the loose mixed forest, the Gainfeldbach plunges fifty meters into the depth, whereby the rock is mystically and shell-shaped washed out. For centuries, the area around the waterfall has been said to have healing properties specifically for respiratory diseases. A newly built waterfall path leads with almost 355 steps to the upper part of the waterfall and to the Pongowe castle ruins. From there you can enjoy a wonderful view over the city to the Tennengebirge. A "gentle descent" through the loose mixed forest leads back to the starting point.
