Excursions to the fifth biggest waterfalls of the world

The Krimmler Waterfalls in Salzburg count amongst the most visited sights in Austria and are the fifth biggest waterfalls of this world, and the tallest in the whole of Europe.

The thunderous Krimmler Waterfalls lie in the National Park Hohe Tauern. With their fall height of 380 metres (1248 feet) the Krimmler Waterfalls excite more than 350.000 visitors each year – a true spectacle of nature, which will leave adults and children standing in awe.

Walk from the car park in Krimml on an easily accessible hiking path to the thundering, cool waterfalls and experience this amazing sight first hand. Within a 10-15 minutes walk you will have reached the lower waterfall tier. From here the waterfall hiking path will take you up to the highest Krimmler Waterfalls tier and further into the Krimmler Achental Valley. The Krimmler hiking path is open from mid April until end of October for you.
