The Highest Waterfalls in Europe

The Krimml waterfalls are the highest in Europe, and the fifth highest in the world. Every year, around 350,000 visitors come here to marvel at the unique natural spectacle. A hiking path gets them to the falls.

Krimmler Ache and Natural Monument

The waterfalls originate in the glacier stream Krimmler Ache. It flows through the valley, turning into a rushing stream, and plunges down along the stairs of the waterfall into a 380m/1,247ft deep abyss. The amount of water varies according to the time of day and the season.

Surrounded by Hohe Tauern National Park, Krimml waterfalls became a natural reserve in 1958, and were declared a natural monument three years later. Furthermore, the waterfalls are said to have a positive effect on well-being and respiratory health.

The way to the waterfalls is open from mid-April to late October.
