The Krimml Waterfalls – the Highest in Austria
A Natural Spectacle in the Hohe Tauern National Park
Around 110km from Grossarl is one of Austria’s natural wonders: the Krimml Waterfalls. With a height of 385m, these are the highest waterfalls in Austria. The hiking trail that leads to the waterfalls offers a magnificent view of the roaring falls.
The Krimml Waterfalls hiking trail is open from the middle of April until the end of October. There is a small fee to use the trail, with the collected funds being used to preserve the surrounding area.
Hike along the Krimml Waterfalls
The parking lot is located a mere 15 minutes by foot from the bottom-most waterfall. From there you can decide whether to hike to this waterfall to view this natural spectacle or to continue along the path to see the rest of the chain of waterfalls. This trail requires a bit of physical fitness but it follows alongside the water and offers amazing views of the waterfalls. The entire hike takes around one hour and at times travels along steep switchbacks. The reward is great: an unforgettable sight and a close-up view of the Krimml Waterfalls.
An Extended Hike Beyond the Krimml Waterfalls
Those who are looking for a hike lasting longer than one hour must not make the upper end of the Krimml Waterfalls the end of their hike. From the Krimml Waterfalls there is a longer hiking trail that leads to different alpine chalets in the Salzburger Land and reaches a peak of 2,370m.
Well Looked After on the Krimml Waterfalls Trail
The trail alongside the Krimml Waterfalls is well developed and therefore suitable for baby buggies. Your hike will even be well catered for: along the trail you will find numerous restaurants where you can enjoy refreshments to regain strength for the rest of the day. The bottom-most waterfall is wheelchair accessible.
Don’t miss a chance to see the roaring waterfalls and a unique view of the world’s fifth highest waterfall. A day trip from the Hotel Edelweiss to the Krimml Waterfalls is an easy affair. We look forward to your non-binding booking enquiry.
