Krimml Waterfalls

Enjoy a spectacular hike to Austria’s highest waterfalls. The three stages of the hike, starting in the village of Krimml, take you to ever more spectacular views of the falls and the surrounding countryside. Bring your camera and capture the most beautiful section of the falls!

The gorgeous scenery of the Hohe Tauern National Park is your backdrop when hiking from the little village of Krimml, in the province of Salzburg, to Central Europe’s tallest waterfalls: the “Krimml Waterfalls.” From a height of 380 meters, the mountain waters of the Krimmler Ache, a glacial creek, plunge over three tiers to the valley below.

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.
