Fantastic site, worthwile spending 1-2h. The whole site is down hill, so you have to be prepared for a bit of stairs eg comfortable shoes and a "good knees"🙂. During summer also water. It is free of charge, unless you want to see watefoll cave which is worth spend 1euro investment.
Perfect site, great way to spend time in to see up close power of nature ( with a bit of help).
Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our trip to the falls. There is a restaurant with amazing view. Next you walk down to the falls and you can walk under the waterfall. Next there is a 20 meters cave with very small entry fee. We like it on a hot day nice to get away from the sun. Same with the falls great to be around on a hot day. There are stairs, if you need to rest there are plenty of benches with a nice view of the fall and nature. If in Edessa must experience. When we were there all ages present, even kids in strollers.

Amazing waterfalls and small rivers that flow through the city and pass out of the houses. Bridges connect the two sides of the rivers and huge trees more than 200 years aged creat forests and parks all around the city.

I was looking forward to visiting the highest waterfall in the Balkans and arrived to see a very well constructed set of walkways. The staff at the information office were very well informed and helpful. Slight problem: no water was flowing on the day I was there - some work going on at the dam up from the town. I am sure that, when the water is flowing, it is very impressive.

As if all the trips we took during our visit to Thessaloniki weren’t enough, I really wanted to go and see the waterfalls. To get to Edessa, there are two options one is to take the train or to take the bus. In Greece the preferred mode of travel is to take the bus. To get to Edessa by bus you need to go to KTEL Macedonia and the trip takes about 3hours. The previous reviewers are quite right, the waterfalls are small, but the nature around it is really nice. However, we picked a bad day to explore Edessa, it was pouring down with rain and we were not dressed correctly for the weather and we didn’t have an umbrella. We were freezing as it was cold. So I guess we would have enjoyed it more if we had picked a nice sunny day. Luckily, there were many really nice cafés, so we sat down in one and had something warm to drink. Looking back, I’m not sure if I would have gone there solely to see the waterfalls, it is maybe better to combine it as the day tour ‘Alexander the Great Path’ with the Pella and perhaps Vergina. I can’t say much about Pella and Vergina, but to travel about 3 hours to go to Edessa and just spent 2 hours there is not really worth it. But enjoy enjoy!!

Well about the rating: its not really average, but i can't say it is very good.. its lovely...so lets go between it, say about 3.5, but like i said i guess we didnt have the best circumstances.

The Waterfall park in Edessa is nearly a must-see when in region. There is a very beautiful road near Edessa leading from Thessaloniki, following the ancient roman Via Egnatia. Edessa itself lies on top of a rock-hill, and its famous waterfalls running down from the height of ca 70 meters to the valley below. There is well-arranged park with promenade-paths all around the area with 2 bigger waterfalls, one named Karanos, and the other a Double-one, and some smaller cascades of water and pools. It is possible to come behind the biggest waterfall and see waters fall down right in front of you, an imaginative picture in a sunny day. In the Ancient times, there was a temple of a water-deity near the waterfalls, it can be seen on some older paintings. See here the pictures attached.
There are a few restaurants in front of the entrance to the Waterfall park.

Strolling a beautiful park and its powerful waterfall together with the Locals from Edessa was a great experience.

Without booking anything in advance we drove a rental car from Thessaloniki (about an hour and three quarters drive ) and without any difficulty we reached the small town of Edessa where visible road signs guide the visitor to the waterfall park where parking is available nearby a parklike estate where water flows throw to end down various cascades of spectacular falls , a cave and a path behind the main waterfall which offers certain excitement and not only ! From the altitude that the park stands at a spectacular view of the foresty planes is also breathtaking ! Visit to Edessa if you are visiting Greece is a must !!

Very pretty views from all points as you walk down the levels. You can also walk behind it. The big cafe in the middle has a beautiful broad view. There is a shop in the corner of the market where you can park and have a nice bougatsa while you walk. There is a cute cave for a small fee that shows the stacmiyes and stalactites like in Kastoria’s Dragon Cave and in Naracoorte in Adelaide. Our children love these.

Honestly, waterfalls rarely "do it" for me and very few have the wow-factor. But I must admit that this one was a rather pleasant surprise. The whole area is fresh and lush and obviously roaring with water that is guided down the mountain. You can walk a few levels down wide stairs, following the water down, even walk behind the curtain ; there is a large platform, ideal for that perfect family shot with the foaming white waters behind you.
