    More beautiful than the tourist overcrowded official way, challenging downhill and uphill, highly recommended, good fitness required!

    I went the way in late July 2018, it was deserted unlike the opposite waterfall highway. We recommend.

    The path is over 4,000 years old. Only the Celts later the Romans use it as a trade route today it is a beautiful hiking trail

    July 2019:The official way is a disaster. Overflowing without end. The "Alte Tauernweg" is hard to find. We went the last third the alternative route and this again went all the way down. Is it really worth it? A lot of nature. Goods with our children (7 and 10 years) worked perfectly.

    Far more recommended than the waterfall. Although a little less waterfall views (it is the one or the other trail to catch very special views) but the mountain trail to the eight valley is all first cream,

    Already in the High Middle Ages, there is a mule track along the waterfalls and the Achental on the Krimmler Tauern (2,633 m) to Italy. The most important commodities are salt transported to the south and wine to the north. The still managed Krimmler Tauernhaus as an important rest stop is first documented in 1389.In the 16th century, the mule traffic over the Krimmler Tauern obviously so significant that a new route is created. The surrounding nature does not interest the travelers of the time. Accordingly, the Krimmler Tauernweg is created: It leads to the waterfalls only if it is absolutely necessary from the ground.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krimmler_Wasserf%C3%A4lle

    The old Tauernweg is not as crowded as the main path at the waterfalls.

    An old medieval trade route. Very nice path, a bit off the main routes at the waterfalls you can get up or down much more relaxed ...
