If you spend your vacation in the beautiful Zillertal, you should not miss the opportunity to visit the impressive Krimml Waterfalls. They are among the highest waterfalls in Europe and promise a breathtaking natural spectacle that you will remember for a long time.
From the Zillertal, it is recommended to take the car to the Krimml Waterfalls. The drive takes about an hour, depending on where exactly you are staying in the Zillertal. The route will take you through picturesque mountain villages and beautiful landscapes and is almost an experience in itself.
After arriving at the entrance to the waterfalls, you can already marvel at the imposing water masses. Over three steps, the waterfall plunges a total of 380 meters into the depths. A well maintained hiking trail leads along the water and you have the opportunity to enjoy the falls from various vantage points.
For families and less experienced hikers, the leisurely Panorama Trail is a good choice. It is wide and easy to walk, so you can experience the waterfalls even with children. Along the way there are informative signs about the flora and fauna of the region, so you can learn a lot about the local nature.
For hikers looking for a little challenge, there is the waterfall trail. It takes you closer to the water masses and lets you feel the thunderous roar and the impressive spray. Remember to wear sturdy shoes, though, as the path can be a bit slippery.
The Krimml Waterfalls are undoubtedly a must-see for all nature lovers and adventurers visiting the Zillertal. Whether you just want to take a short walk or a challenging hike, the waterfalls offer something special for everyone. So, pack your hiking boots and camera and experience Austria's breathtaking nature firsthand!
