Europe's Largest Waterfalls

With a height of 380m, the Krimml Waterfalls are the highest in Europe. They are the only natural monument in Austria to have been awarded the Council of Europe's Diploma of Nature Conservation in 1967. This magnificent natural spectacle is definitely worth a visit. The best way to view and marvel at the thundering masses of water is from the viewing trail of the Warnsdorf/Krimml ÖAV Section.
