In the Tauferer Ahrntal, not far from Sand in Taufers at the entrance to the Nationalpark Rieserfernergruppe, are the Reinbach waterfalls.
The Reinbach Waterfalls are among the highest in South Tyrol. Here huge volumes of water from three waterfalls roar in the depths. The falls are an impressive spectacle of nature, really worth seeing, especially in summer, when the falls carry more water than in other seasons. It is three waterfalls, between 10 and 42 m high, over which the masses of water rush down into the depths impressively and with a spray of dust. The waterfalls can be reached in a beautiful and less strenuous walk on the Franziskusweg, a very rewarding trip for the whole family.

The Reinbach (also Reiner Bach) is a left tributary of the Ahr in South Tyrol, Italy. It rises in the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park above Rein in Taufers and flows through the Reintal and the Tobel Gorge with the Reinbach Falls. It flows into the Ahr near Sand in Taufers and drains on via Rienz, Eisack and Adige into the Adriatic.
Above all, the Reinbach is known for its spectacular three waterfalls in the district of Winkel in Taufers. The upper Reinbachfall has a height of about 50 m.
The upper case level is the result of a partial discharge of the Reinbach to generate electricity and thus no "natural" waterfall.

In the third waterfall, it is definitely advisable to bring a rain jacket, as the water mist is quite dense.
There is also a ziplining station that leads from the 3rd to the 1st waterfall (cost 9 € ) I did not try it, because I wanted to enjoy the falls rather :)
