An effervescent adventure - Krimml Waterfalls

Hiking at Krimml Waterfalls

An impressive natural spectacle occurs at Krimml Waterfalls, as the thundering glacier river, the Wild Ache, plunges down the levels at Krimml Waterfalls. 

The fall height here is 380 metres and on average, 5.3 cubic metres of water plunge into the valley every second. The invigorating spray from Krimml Waterfalls, set in the midst of the dreamy backdrop of the Hohe Tauern National Park, is a real boon on hot days and is also very beneficial for your lungs. The fine water mist, that results from the water hitting the ground below from a great height, contains a high number of negatively charged ions that reach your respiratory tract via the lungs, where their cleansing and anti-inflammatory effect unfolds.

Europe’s biggest waterfalls are breath-takingly beautiful and easy to get to via the Krimml Waterfall Trail. The four kilometre circular Krimml Waterfall Trail, created by the Austrian Alpine Association, is ideal for a view-packed hike through the natural surroundings at Krimml Waterfalls. The Krimml Waterfall Trail proceeds along numerous viewing points and pulpits, which help you get up close to the natural spectacle that is the Krimml Waterfalls.
