Very crowdy at the base of the falls. Too many tourist there. Take a taxi uphill to the end and have a little 30 minute walk to viessen alm. Here you will find no real tourist but only real walkers. At the alm are real shelters with traditional food for example real butter milch and no tourist souvenirs for high... More

You NEED to see this waterfall. Try go in the morning, on a sunny day the light really hits the waterfall better. None the less though, you need to see how impressive this is, in your life time!

The Krimml Falls are the highest in Europe and the 5th highest in the world, and even in high summer (we visited in August) the volume of water cascading down was phenomenal. You'll need a certain amount of fitness to get the best out of your visit. You can take the easy lower path which just leads to the bottom... More

We went with our children of 2 and 6, the waterfall is amazing a true wonder of nature, It is a hard road to the top, with two small children is an adventure, if you are not in a good shape you should take the Cab to the top. I was exhausted, and i exercise daily. Enjoy

We went to this site for the third time. This time with our teenagers. It is always a great experience. If you gave little children then you may choose to get a shuttle to the top and walk down the falls as w did last time. There is a nice restaurant at the end of the track.

For ten Euros (the price of admission), our family of six discovered one of Austria's most stunning places. Wow - what a deal! It is a good drive to the little Alpine village, but so worth it. Make sure you wear your hiking boots and rain slicker - you will need them both as you ascend the mountain to the... More

Really impressive waterfall - highest in Europe. Paths along the waterfall are all wide but veeery steep. Since our physical condition is not the best for climbing we decided to take the taxi to the top of the waterfall thanx to the information we read here - that saves you a lot of energy since the way back is also...

I visited with my family in mid August on a cool, partly cloudy day threatening rain. I assumed that the weather would keep some of the crowds away, but didn't seem to be the case... or maybe there's usually more? Anyway, the falls are amazing and worth seeing even with the masses of people. There are actually a series of... More

I conquered the walk to the top of the krimml falls today. Tough going but did it at my pace. Lots of photographs on way up. Beautiful falls that really do cascade.

We were really lucky with the weather for this trip. The day before it had been raining for about 24 hours non stop and as a result the waterfall was amazing! We walked all the way to the top and really enjoyed some lovely views. On the way down we stopped off at the cafe and enjoyed a drink and... More
