König-Friedrich-August-WarteA circular hike around the Krimml waterfall village
From the center of Krimml Wasserfalldorf, this circular hike takes you into the history of Krimml, to historically important places such as the lime kiln and the König-Friedrich-August-Warte.
The König-Friedrich-August-Warte was built by the Warnsdorf section of the German and Austrian Alpine Club in 1914 to commemorate the visit of the last king of Saxony, Friedrich August III. (1865 – 1932) built. Panoramic views of Krimml, the Krimml Waterfalls, the Krimmler Achental, the Seekar and the Salzach Valley reward the short climb to the König-Friedrich-August-Warte. This is located at a vantage point above the Falkenstein, a rocky hill between Krimml and Wald im Pinzgau, which was already inhabited in the older Bronze Age.
From the center of Krimml, the path leads east to the district of Nothdorf and on to the shooting range of the Anton Wallner riflemen. Via the Nothdorfgraben it goes down a short distance along the road until you turn left onto the Panoramaweg. The path leads through an idyllic forest past the historic lime kiln up to the König-Friedrich-August-Warte. Along the Lärchaweg and past the deer feeding station you descend to Vorderkrimml. From the Krimml train station it is only a few minutes' walk along the main road to the Bräuernbrücke and the tranquil Achenwaldweg, which accompanies you along the Krimmler Ache back to Krimml or to the Krimmler waterfalls.
Walking time: approx. 2.5 hours.
