Description of Krimml Falls

Krimml Falls are located near town of Krimml, 50 km (30 miles) from Zell am See. These waterfalls are located on the Krimmler Ache river near a small town of Krimml. At a total height of 380 meters (1,247 feet) Krimml Falls are the highest waterfall in Europe. It is located on the western edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park and actually is a series of three waterfalls connected by rapids. The trail will take you to through a narrow valley covered in dense forest although most tourists don’t make to the highest waterfall of the Krimml Falls. It is 4 km (2.5 miles) long and can be fairly steep in some parts so it will take about 1.5- 2 hours to get to the very top, Bergerblick. Awesome view of the Krimml valley below from the platform is worth the climb. First roads to the top of the Krimml Falls were laid in 1879 by the Austrian Alpine Club. Today over 400,000 tourists visit Krimml valley and its surrounding forests.

 

Krimml Falls flow caries throughout a year. It is weakest during winter months and during late spring and early summer months it is the strongest due to melting snows and glaciers.
