Hi guys! Summer is supposed to come back to Stuttgart next week. Jippy! If you want to escape the heat for a while you could visit a waterfall in Stuttgart. Yep, you read correctly, we do have a waterfall within the city boarders, the Heslacher Wasserfälle. Find out how you can get there!
Moritz and I visited the waterfall in Stuttgart recently on a hot sunday afternoon. We decided that we start at Feuersee so we can check out the new bank of the lake.
The city of Stuttgart has built stairs and a little pathway on the south side of the lake, next to Rothebühlstraße. So by now you can sit down on the stairs and enjoy the view of the lake with the beautiful Johanneskirche in the background (if you ask me, the most beautiful church in Stuttgart). Several kids had brought remote-controlled boats and had a lot of fun maneuvering them around the ducks, swans and turtles (yep, the Feuersee is home of a bunch of turtles. Cool, right?! :-D)
We followed Senefelderstraße and Reinsburgstraße in order to reach Hasenbergsteige. I just love this street! Check out these beautiful buildings and details:
Keep in mind that the words “Berg” and “Steige” in the streetname “Hasenbergsteige” already point out that you have to climb up a few meters while walking this street. But you get rewarded with beautiful views:
After a while you will reach a park with an art exhibition…
…and an old tower, the Hasenbergturm. It used to be a look-out but is closed nowadays.
If you need a break, you can sit down on some of the tables next to it. If you want to enjoy the view nevertheless, you can still do so, there is a platform underneath the old tower from where you have this view:
We headed straight on. The houses ended and we entered a forest.
Apparently, we were walking on the Bürgeralle now.
We walked through the woods for some time until we finally reached our destination: The waterfall in Stuttgart!
Then we saw the waterfall. Depending if there was some rain the days before your visit or not, it can be bigger or smaller.
Well guys, if you have visited the Heslacher waterfall in Stuttgart, you can truly call yourself a real Stuttgarter as this place is only known to locals – and not even to all of them. 🙂
We relaxed a bit next to the water before we walked on, crossed a little bridge at the food of the waterfall and climbed up a hill on the other side.
We reached the main track and followed it down to Heslach and the U-Bahn-Station “Heslach Vogelrain” where our trip ended after 1.5 hours.
