Long Description:
Der Wasserfall im Freizeitpark Rheinaue ist ebenso wie der Rheinauensee künstlich angelegt. Er wurde mit dem ca. 160 ha großen Park für die Bundesgartenschau 1979 angelegt.

Das Wasser wird aus dem See etwa fünf Meter hoch gepumpt und fällt dann als Wasserfall wieder zurück in den See. Oberhalb des Wasserfalls gibt es einen Aussichtspunkt mit Bänken mit Aussicht auf den Rheinauensee. Unterhalb gibt es die Möglichkeit, den See auf großen Steinquadern zu überqueren.
