Good to know
From mid-April to the end of October, the imposing Krimml Waterfalls are perfect for a day trip. They are the largest waterfalls in Europe and, with a height of 380 meters, are considered one of the most impressive natural spectacles in the world. Its origin is at the Krimmler Ache, which first flows through about 20 kilometers of flat alpine pastures as a mountain stream before plunging into the depths as a thunderous glacier stream at the end of the valley.
