The impressive Krimml waterfalls are the highest in Europe, the fifth largest in the world located in the National Park "Hohe Tauern" in Austria.
The waterfall and trails are open all year. You have to pay an entrance fee from mid-April/ May until end of October daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. last admission at 4.30 p.m.
An average of 450,000 m³ of water plunges down the falls a day in summer which is 5.6 m³ per second. The waterfall is at its peak late evening due to the midday melted water of the glacier.
Best sunlight for the waterfalls at noon. The waterfall has only a fraction of water in winter.
In winter, you walk at your own risk and it can be a bit difficult to hike to the topmost part; the lowest part is mostly possible. Every Wednesday a guided torch hike is offered at 8.30 p.m. Meeting point is the bandstand in Krimml.
It is a very popular natural spectacle with more than 400.000 visitors each year therefore very crowded at Eastern and in summer – viewer people in the morning. Very special in winter.
