Realistically its not one but 4 waterfalls on top of each other as river runs... More

Actually we went to this place in December when no one would ideally expect us there. But it was fun and amazing. The day was sunny and brilliant. We did a hike up to middle of the falls. At the bottom the water was frozen and there was ice. At the middle the side edges of the fall and turned... More

Krimml falls is probably the highest water falls in the salzburg region. It close to Zell Am See, a small skiing destination. Its ideal to embark on a drive from vienna to this place.The drive would be around 4-5 hours and you can route through Lake Mondsee. The salzburg district offers great lakes and water bodies to be visited. I... More

These waterfalls are incredible. It is well worth the trip. There are a few options on what to do, depending on how much time and effort you want to spend there. The easiest is to just park at the lot and walk down to the base of the falls. which is impressive. You can also hike up besides the falls... More

This place is fantastic with amazing views and photographic opportunities; would definitely recommend. However, beware there are a lot of steps to climb but you can decide how far you want to go and even from the bottom you can still endure the atmosphere.

Unfortunately when i visited the waterfalls it was raining, obviously when you visit a waterfall you prepare to get wet to a certain extent but the rain didn't help. As a result of the rain we only went to the first stop, but it was very impressive! The sight of the water crashing down is truly amazing. The visitor centre... More

This is the highest waterfall in Europe and the fifth highest in the world. Access is from the Gerlos Pass which goes through the Hohe Tauern national Park.

Since I came back from the place, I keep on dreaming about it. This is the kind on impression this place left on me. Waterfall is the biggest attraction there however this is heaven for hikers. You can hike to the top alongside the waterfall and can walk down (Steep). For those who are not into hikers category, you can... More

Krimml Waterfall is the largest in Europe. To visit the fall to the middle station you need to pay about 9 Euros, the walk is quite hard and good walking boots/shoes are required. Also it would be wise to take a rain coat or mac due to the water vapour being blown onto the track. A good tip is to... More
