Walk for about 30 minutes from the southern end of the village, high above the Salzach valley, along the path to the first view point, the Lower Falls. The Riemannkanzel and the third view point are only about 5 minutes apart. Further along, the Regenkanzel takes you to the Middle Falls where you can literally feel the power of the water.
If you feel like taking a break, the Schoenangerl restaurant at 4,216 ft. is the perfect place to do so. Of course, you’ll find the finest view at the Bergerblick, the top of the falls. Expect to spend 1 ½ hours to hike to the top. Tectonic shifts pushed the earth up to create the high distance to the bottom of the falls. Don’t miss the Krimmler Ache, which is the source of the waterfall!
Immediately adjacent to the falls, find the WasserWunderWelt, an aquatic theme park that depicts water in its countless forms.
Over three hundred glaciers, ten thousand animal species and countless jaw-dropping vistas make the Alps' largest nature reserve also its most memorable. Cultural artifacts and natural wonders compete for your attention. The National Park Center -- open daily -- makes for a perfect base camp as you set out to explore this magnificent Austrian treasure.Learn more about the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern
