The Spiegelthaler wasserfall is a small but scenic waterfall in the village Clausthal-Zellerfeld in the region Niedersachsen, Germany. The Spiegelthaler wasserfall is located in the Harz, a small mountain chain south of Braunschweig, Germany.
The Spiegelthaler wasserfall is easy to reach from the picturesque Waldhotel Untermühle. When driving on road 241 near Clausthal-Zellerfeld you see a big board “Waldhotel Untermühle”. Follow the sign taking a small road for a few hundred meter until the road ends and you reach the hotel. There is a parking left of the hotel.
From Waldhotel Untermühle it is a 10 minute walk on a forrest road until you reach the Spiegelthaler wasserfall. Take the trail left when you reach the lake/pond and then the small path right. Soon you reach the upper part of the Spiegelthaler wasserfall.
The Spiegelthaler wasserfall is only 7 meter high but very nice to see with a small pool in front of the waterfall. Also a perfect place for children where they can play with the water.
I visited the Spiegelthaler wasserfall end of April 2018 and the waterflow wasn’t very spectacular but still enough to create a scenic waterfall. After a rainy period (autumn) the Spiegelthaler wasserfall is much more powerful.
There are several other nice waterfall in the Harz. I liked the Königshütter Wasserfall very much. Not because of its power but because of the atmosphere and the picnic facilities.
Highest waterfall in the Harz is the Romkerhaller wasserfall with a height of 50-64 meter and is located near Bad Harzburg.
