Discover The Krimml waterfalls Austria

In the Pinzgau valley, the major spectacle remains the Krimml waterfalls. Coming from 12 glaciers, these waterfalls 1,245 feet high unleash their water spouts with considerable uproar. Discover them on the Gerlos road, which offers a panoramic view of the Tratenköpfl. Hikers can approach the waterfalls by taking the signed footpath. If you continue along the road, you will very quickly look over Lake Wildgerlossee in its superb setting of high mountains.

    A path alongside the falls leads to the top. It takes motivation as the path is steep, but it is definitely worth it.
