Krimmler Waterfalls (96 km)
With their impressive drop of 390 m the highest waterfalls in Europe, they are a symbol for all the beauties of nature in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Since more than 100 years the waterfall path with its many lookout points, bridges and pulpits, has been guiding nature enthusiasts up close to this spectacle of nature.
A breath-taking spectacle of nature expects you at the upper waterfall. With the massive drop of 145 m it represents the highest level of the Krimml waterfalls. At the exit of the Krimml Achental valley the masses of water rush over an area with especially hard and resistant gneiss rock into the more shallow section at the Schönangerlboden, which is embedded in softer slate, just as the Krimml basin.
The glacier stream flows thunderously from the Schönangerlboden over the middle waterfall with a drop of 100 m.
At the bottom, two-level waterfall the water masses of the Krimml Ache, fed from 17 glacier streams, fall over two levels, a drop of 140 m, thunderously into the Krimml basin. The forceful impact turns the drops of water into spray that coats the rich vegetation of the waterfall forest in summer and decorates it with bizarre ice crystals in winter.
