    Krimml fall's
    Not to be missed incredible view's, if like us you want to fully enjoy your experience by the time you have enjoyed the lower part of the falls and taken lots of photos 45-60 mkns gave flown past. We then set off up the very well maintained path (starts easy but does get tougher) by the time we got to the second eatery we felt like a stop and a bite to eat plus drink. Now we have the last hurdleone fairly flat stretch followed by the steepest part of the climb at this point we had 30mins of time left before needing to turn back for the coach my family had turned back were as I carried on I got as far as view point 9, The 1330M point and turned back not to miss the coach. I caught up with the family and got down in just over the 1hr. So yes you can go up and down in 2,1/2 hrs but not if you want to take in the view's you need 4hrs to enjoy yourself. Entry has increased to €8 . Still the best day of our holiday.

    A hidden gem
    I had visited the valley many times since 1975 and had never ventured to the far end to see the Krimml Falls. Don't wait as long as I did. They are a beautiful day out. the walk up the well-maintained path is somewhat strenuous but easily accomplished if you take your time and go at whatever pace your fitness level will allow. The several overlooks are well-earned rest spots along the way. The restaurants at the top are worthy destinations. We stopped before the last cascade which required a further 40 minute walk but still rate this as a worthy competitor as an alpine experience to the Grossglockner which we saw the prior year. A side trip (drive) up the Gerlos pass road should be part of the excursion as well. Try to go in good weather. Yes it will be crowded with bus tourists but the landscape absorbs them well. An entrance fee is charged to walk up but the result is that the site is well maintained.

    Great visit
    Well worth a visit. Good connections via coach. Trip up is quite steep. I would recommend coming down via the alternative route. It’s a bit more interesting that the paths on the way up but a bit more craggy underfoot. Waterfalls were spectacular.

    Brilliant experience - tickets are cash only!
    Visited after recommendation and did not disappoint. A great experience to appreciate the power of water! The walk up to the top is quite steep in places, but the view from the top is amazing and totally worth it. We wore proper walking trainers and you definitely need them, especially for the walk back down. When we arrived, it felt busy but once you start the walk up, it didn’t seem it at all as there’s a good spread of people up the trail. The tickets at the bottom are only available with cash - so word of warning if you don’t have any (like us) as card isn’t an option which is frustrating in current times! Otherwise, a great experience and day out.

    Spectacular
    Great place to visit. We visited the day after the terrible storm which flooded a lot of the local area. The weather was still overcast & damp but it was still well worth a visit. The falls were magnificent, plenty of spray so make sure you've waterprrofs with you.. Dogs are allowed. The sound of the water thundering over the edge is amazing. Quite a steep climb, but it's down hill on the return. Great for kids & both my 2 were fascinated at each turn. Plenty of viewing locations & areas to have a break.

A horribly cynical set up to extract every last drop of blood from folks simply wanting to experience a natural wonder.
The car park is free for twenty minutes. That is not quite enough time to walk towards the falls; discover half way along that there is a 7€ charge to go any further; turn back to the car park; pay 4.80€ because you didn’t make the twenty minute deadline.
A venal honeypot that left a nasty taste in the mouth.

Krimml Falls / Krimmler Wasserfalle - Unvergleichliche natürliche Schönheit. The falls are in the Hohe Tauern National Park, Austria’s largest national park. The mountain peaks are 3000 meters! Visits in both January and May were unforgettable. Gorgeous scenery and a good work out getting to the top. A photographer's paradise.
Near the falls, Bramberg am Wildkogel has a cable car which brings you to the mountain top where, depending upon the time of year, you can ski, ice skate, hurl down the floodlit toboggan run (at 14 km one of the longest floodlit runs in the world), swim, hand glide, and hike. Travelers to Austria and southern Germany should add Krimml falls to their 'Best Places in Europe for an Outdoor Adventure' list. Stay for a weekend, however more time will allow you to fully experience all that this magnificent spot in the world has to offer.

Not to be missed. The falls are impressive even if you are only able to view them from the lower point. If you can, take the trail up the side of the falls to the top, or at least to the top of the third fall. The trail is very accessible and suitable for all ages. Plenty of viewing platforms. The restaurant gets very busy, be patient it is worth it if only for the view. Make sure that you allow enough time here, it does take a while to walk up. We are relatively fit and it took us just over the hour. Also, parking, plenty of places, but it is cash only so be prepared. Well worth the entrance fee

Stunning waterfall and relatively easily accessible. However, we were surprised with the number of hiking routes available to reach the top, so we didnt have time to hike to the top. Would recommend to set at least 3-4 hours aside to visit this place and we unfortunately didnt have that much time.

The falls are impressive. There's a trail leading from the lower part all the way up. It's a though climb but the views are amazing. For the less sportive people, it's always possible to turn back but you'll miss out on some great things.
The path along the falls is in great condition, but some parts are really steep.
When you reach the upper falls, keep on walking for another 30 minutes and you will arrive in a beautiful green valley from where other walking trails start.
