Where is the highest waterfall in Europe?
Krimml Waterfalls, Austria
With their impressive waterfall drop of 380 meters, the Krimml Waterfalls are the fifth highest in the world and Europe’s tallest waterfalls.
Located in the High Tauern National Park near the village of Krimml, in the Salzburg district, this is a tiered waterfall with three distinct drops.
The falls occur on the Krimmler Ache river which is sometimes referred to as a glacial stream as it is fed by waters from a melting glacier but the rate of flow varies greatly throughout the year as it channels the waters of the melting alpine snows. The Krimml Waterfalls are therefore at their most spectacular during the spring and early summer.
After passing through the falls, the waters of the river then join the rivers Salzach, Inn and Danube eventually discharging into the Black Sea.
The beauty of these spectacular falls has long been recognised and the paths allowing access to visitors date back to the 19th century. The paths and viewing points are well maintained allowing for safe and relatively simple access for those with good standards of fitness and mobility.
