Krimml Waterfalls

They are impressive. They are exceptional. And they are more than worth a visit. Krimml Waterfalls are 380 m in height and transport their immense masses of water via three levels of falls down into the depths  at the mouth of the valley. Each second on average 5.6 m3 water crashes down into the valley. With around 400,000 visitors each year they feature among the Top 10 of the most sought-after sights in Austria.


The fifth highest waterfalls in the world

The Krimmler Ache is the origin of Krimml Waterfalls. It starts at the end of Krimml's Achental and initially gently flows through some 20 km of flat Alpine terrain, before then reaching the mouth of the valley as a thundering glacier river and crashing down the vast steps of the Krimml Waterfalls.

The waterfall trail

It is a 10 – 15 minute walk via the waterfall trail from the car park to the lowermost waterfall. From there, the route proceeds in serpentines on the waterfall trail to the uppermost waterfall (walking time around 1 hour 15 minutes) and continues to Krimml's Achental. Viewing turrets provide spectacular views to the  thundering water masses in the Krimml Waterfall. Information is available at the information point and there is also an extensive selection of redaing material, DVDs and much more at the ÖAV information point. A handicap-accessible area is available at Kürsingerplatz.
