The Krimmler Wasserfälle
with a total height of 380 m
The Krimmler Wasserfälle are located on the north-west edge of the Hohe Tauern in the state of Salzburg. They are fed by the Krimmler Ache, a glacial stream that rises at the Krimmler Kees in the Venice Group. From there, the Krimmler Ache flows through the Krimmler Achental until its lower reaches plunge over 380 m into the Krimml valley basin, forming the Krimmler Wasserfälle. The Krimmler Wasserfälle are so powerful that you can see the outstanding European natural monument from afar. The masses of water cascading down three steps roar, rush and roar - the Achen Falls perform a fascinating natural spectacle with a dramaturgy that amazes.
The best way to see the lower, middle and upper Achenfall is to climb up along the Warnsdorf-Krimml Alpine Club waterfall trail to the entrance to the Krimmler Achental. You can feel the spray on your skin, breathe in the healthy waterfall air and see and feel the overwhelming power of nature from the numerous viewing platforms.
