Kuldiga is a great place for a weekend with your loved one (also for families). The waterfall is beautiful in summer, the water is warm so you can cross it from one end to the other on foot. Also bring your swimsuit and take the chance to swim in the river. It is lovely.

It starts with the bridge - built in 1874, one of the longest bridges (174m) made of bricks in Europe. The scenery is truly royal! Then you get closer - awesome! Don't hesitate to WALK the Waterfall, kids will love it as there is no danger of too deep river just some slightly slippery rocks maybe. Enjoy!

The waterfall is interesting to see, though not exactly spectacular. Similarly the brick bridge close to it. Well worth visiting if in the area.

A must see when you are in Kuldiga. It's safe for children to enjoy the hot summer days. At sunset you will have a grand view on europe's largest brickstone bridge.

Beautiful place any time of year. In winter, the waterfall can be frozen . In the spring you can watch the flying fish. In summer you can cool off in the pleasant river water. Autumn rain falls can almost be overlooked , because of a large amount of water .

The most beautiful view in Kuldiga !! Great place to spend some hours on a sunny hot day. Water are great, you can swim at the waterfall. It is just a 15-25 minutes walk from the old town. A must see, when in Kuldiga !
