In my early 70's so this was a long uphill walk....about 50 minutes or so. You just have to get to the top for a drink or icecream. They should have signs which say "30 minutes from here" like alton towers. Perhaps it would make people give up too early though. :) the views are fabulous and the waterfall is... More

We loved the visit here, the falls were spectacular! There were 3 levels and access to the falls was good, on wide marked paths which made them accessible. You could also get taxis to the top and walk down which wasn't widely broadcast for those who didn't fancy a steep climb to the top. Well worth a visit and was... More

We’ve walked up and down the Krimml waterfall 5 times now over the years in all types of weather conditions. We have even done the strenuous red signed walk in which you definitely need to be fit and wear the right footwear and clothing. We absolutely love the breath taking views and just struck by the awesome sight of the... More

Just simply stunning. If at all possible go right to the top it’s worth the extra effort. Some of the most spectacular in the world

Really impressive experience. When we were at the bottom of the waterfall near the edge, we were humbled by the forces of nature. The air was damp as if it were raining, and the roar from the falling water was thundering. Afterwards we followed the path upwards along the waterfall. Only the father of the family made it all the... More

We were recommended to drive past these falls to Innsbruck. We have two young children and the hike we decided was to much for them (2 kilometers and not pushchair friendly). The visitors centre was lovely and has a nice water play area for the kids. We decided to drive up hill towards Innsbruck and we were rewarded for the... More

Like all day trips to the mountains the views are incredible. The falls are well worth visiting, the mist as you approach the bottom of the falls were certainly welcome as the day was very hot.

We came on bikes from the train station and we saw a long narrow waterfall than suddenly this beauty appeared. It is breath taking, you really get to feel the power of the water. The fee of 3 EUR is absollutely fine. We had lunch in the middle and it was very quick and tasty.

We spent around 3 hours here and could easily have spent more. It is an awesome sight, particularly as it was when we saw it after much rain in the area. There are various options including going to some attractions and a visitor centre. Our advice would be to simply park at the entrance to the falls which cost €4... More

I didn't know that this is the highest waterfall in Europe and 5th in the world. It was a nice addition to Gerlos Pass Road and even nicer break from driving on a hot day.
