Important information due to COVID-19:
The final starting signal for the opening of the summer season of these tourist lighthouses for the regions of the Hohe Tauern in Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol has not yet been given. The WasserWelten Krimml are operated by GROHAG. In addition to the current COVID 19 regulations, which may extend into the summer, as well as exit and travel restrictions, there is also a need for corporate body resolutions. As these resolutions are not expected to be passed until 20 May 2020, the opening - provided this is approved by the owners - would be possible from the beginning of June at the earliest.
With a total height of 380 meters in three stages, the Krimml Waterfalls are the highest waterfalls in Europe and a unique natural wonder! The Krimml River is the source of the Krimml Waterfalls. It begins at the end of the Krimml River Valley and flows through gentle pastures before it plunges down the mighty steps as a subglacial stream. It is a 10-minute walk on the paved path installed by the Austrian Alpine Association from the WaterWonderWorld to the lowest waterfall. The waterfall path takes you to the highest waterfall (approx. 1-hour walk) and offers spectacular views of the thundering water masses.
Daily visiting hours from the Mid of April to End of October.
