    With a drop of 385 meters, the Krimml Waterfalls in the Hohe Tauern National Park are the highest in Austria and are among the most impressive natural spectacles in the world. A 4 km long hiking trail of the ÖAV leads up along the waterfall and brings you up close to the waterfall via numerous viewpoints and pulpits.

    If you are good on foot, you should take the old path (old Tauernweg) on the other side to get to the top. But is sometimes very steep and exhausting.

    The hiking trail along the falls is chargeable and almost impassable in winter without snowshoes.

    The highlight is well worth seeing and it is worth hiking up to the top. ATTENTION: If you get too close, you will be sprayed wet.

    The way to the right of the waterfall can be forgotten below, totally overrun. Much nicer is down this combination old Tauernweg left of the waterfall. A nice quiet path. At the top you can continue on the path to the right of the waterfall, it is not so frequented. , On the descent, you can see these crowds anyway.

    Those who can still walk after the ascent should simply hike further into the Achental.

    With a height of 380m, the Krimml Waterfalls are the fifth highest waterfalls in the world and are the only natural monument in Austria that has been awarded the European Diploma.

    Especially in hot weather you like to stand in the spray and enjoy the rainbows.

    The particularly impressive location at the end of the valley, the large masses of water and the extraordinary drop height of 380 m over three steps make the Krimml waterfalls an impressive natural spectacle. They are also the fifth highest waterfalls in the world.

    The Krimml Waterfalls are the highest waterfalls in Austria with a total height of 385 m. They are located on the edge of the town of Krimml (Salzburg) in the Hohe Tauern National Park. They are formed by the Krimmler Ache, which falls at the end of the high Krimmler Achental in three stages. The river then flows into the Salzach, which flows along the Pinzgau in the direction of Salzburg and the mouth of the Inn.

    Beautiful excursion, also suitable for children. To master well in overcast skies despite the strenuous heights.

    The lowest waterfall is in a good mood. In the summer a good refreshment and shower.
