  • We joined a nostalgia train from Zell am See to Krimml following a night walk with candles to krimmel water falls. Short rest at a lovely restaurant "Henke's Place". It was magnificient. 
  • Waterfall nearby Kaprun very beautiful and fun, you must visit for all visitors to this area and worth a repeat visit several times.

  • Beautiful falls, brilliant day out. Quite a walk up, but the path is very well made and not horribly steep. If you go early you avoid the crowds and the heat. Really well managed, beautiful place. We loved it.
  • Great place for a walk! Arrived 11:30,had early lunch at restaurant (simple food) as we have 2x young children (2+4). The walk up the hill was shattering, mainly when you're lumbered with pushing your lazy daughter in her buggy! Entire round walk took about 2 hours. (up to the restaurant) great views up there. Much more fun going close at the bottom of the waterfall, getting quite wet. Kids loved this. Visited Friday 17th June.
  • Nice place. Good for families too. Parking is 5euros, and once you get to the waterfall path, it's 3 euros per person. The parking is 5e for 24hours (overnight stay seem ok)
  • Well worth seeing, the viewing platforms stick out enabling good views. Best after a couple of days of rain. The spray is fantastic.
  • Horrible tourist trap. You want to park 5 Euro an hour. You want to walk on the trail to the waterfall past all of the sickening tourist souvenir stands, 5 Euro. You want to go to the bathroom, 3 Euro. NOTE: You can drive a few minutes past the tourist trap and get nice views of the falls without wasting money and wading through throngs of tourists on buses.
