Beautiful river and waterfall. Some might be disappointed of the height of the waterfall. On the opposite side of the waterfall is very nice bridge. To get to the waterfall we used stairs. It is also possible to walk around the bank of the river. There is tiny beach and I think there was volleyball net. I like Venta waterfall!

It might not be the highest waterfall, but in Europe it is the widest. We go there everytime we are in Kuldiga (which is 2 to 3 times a year). If the water is low you can walk along the top of the waterfall across the river. The nicest view is from the castle park. On the opposite side you... More

... but what else can you do in Kuldiga? Of course, this waterfall is the main highlight in this town and therefore it is important to see it.

This waterfall was just a part of my visit to my girlfriends home town of Kuldiga. It is a very nice sight and the Old Bridge which is just a heads turn to the left looks great at night all lit up. We were there for the Kuldiga Festival weekend in July 13. Lots of people walk across the waterfall... More

Flying fish is something unreal. Lot of forel fish shining on sun, jumping before the waterfall. Jumping out on rocks. You can look at this perfomance for hours. With admiration and with grief.

Very nice waterfall although it isn't very high. Sometimes you can see fish in the waterfall but I was there at the end of April and didn't see any, but I did see fishermen in the river. In the summer, you can according to tourist brochures, stand under the waterfall and get a massage. However, if you plan on coming... More

The waterfall is said to be the widest in Europe and it is pretty wide. You can walk along it and reach and even bathe in the water, which I dared not to do even though it was August because it was raining and cold! However, I really loved the view especially of the historic bridge across the waterfall. The... More

It is as others have written not the highest or most dramatic waterfall you will see but however it is the widest in Europe and played a significant role in developing Kuldiga as a city. Impressive as all natural features are. How can nature not be worth seeing, especially in the setting of a beautiful city such as Kuldiga.
