At 159m/522ft, Stuibenfall is the highest waterfall in Tyrol. The natural spectacle not only provides pleasant refreshment on a hot day, it is also scientifically proven to enhance the health of your respiratory system. You can get to the waterfalls over 700 steps and a pendant bridge, past five viewing platforms that boast fantastic views into the chasm.

Brave visitors can even blimb the waterfalls, and traverse it on hardly visible tightropes. The family-friendly climbing path leads you right past the cascading water masses, and can also be done accompanied by an experienced and proved mountain guide. During the summer, guided lantern hikes take place at night. Gasthof Stuibenfall takes care of your culinary needs, and serves Tyrolean treats with a beautiful waterfal view.

Historical Information

Visit the natural spectacle and climb 700 steps.

When the glaciers of the ice age disappeared from the valley 9,800 years ago, they left behind a landscape of debirs and rocks. The permafrost thawed, causing two thirds of the mountain to break loose and fall into the valley. These rocks blocked the Horlach stream's way, and, finding a new way down to the valley, it created the Stuibenfall waterfalls.

How to get there
