The Spitter Waterfall is the highest natural waterfall in the German state of Thuringia, with a drop of 19 metres.
The Spitter Waterfall is located below the hillwalking trail of the Rennsteig and tumbles down four cascade steps, 19 metres in overall height, through a notch in the floor of an ice-age hollow on the northern side of the Thuringian Forest. The waterfall is part of the Spitter stream. The source of the Spitter lies only 1.5 km away on the Ebertswiese, a nature reserve lying at a height of about 750 – 800 metres on the boundary of the districts of Schmalkalden-Meiningen and Gotha. The Spitter Waterfall itself is in the district of Gotha.
