    Visited with an excursion that gave us four hours at the falls. Four hours for €3 each was remarkably good value. There was a long and slow moving queue for tickets but once in it's only a short downh...  more »

    Beautiful waterfalls to go view, well worth the effort. Also it horeca fun but beware, you can pay with map and there is nowhere because we are not used to pay cash we have nothing to eat or drink. While there are fun and attractive from all saw. So miss you much sales??? I understand that in the current time. So take enough cash along too for the entrance of three euros: (((

    The waterfalls have a very good reputation which they only partially meet. Because they are extremely crowded for the holiday season are here (not only feels like) 2000 other "wanderers". The routes are indeed broad but it is itself constantly in the way and on the viewing platforms you may took then a place for a photo. At least it is suitable also for children who want to enjoy nature but also a little urgently should avoid the holidays/peak hours,

    Great hike, small fee to get in but worth it as they use it to maintain the hiking paths. You can slowly make your way up to the top of the falls. They have made convenient stops in between where you get awesome views and a little bit of a "rain shower" too. Hike to middle falls with beautiful view is about 40 minutes up a nice hiking path.

    A wonderful place to visit, if the weather is fine. You can walk right up to the waterfall and feel the mist on your body. There are several places where you can walk to the different heights of the complete waterfall (it's devided in sections). Walking to the top takes around 1 hour on good roads to walk on). To enter the area adults pay 3 Euros. Parking around the waterfalls costs 5 Euros per day (no hourly prices possible). There is one parking area for free. Just look for it right after passing parking P1. Also before entering the road to the waterfall (where you pay your 3 Euros) there are little shops (souvenirs, overpriced tourist stuff like everywhere) and a Biergarten to eat.

    One of the highest waterfalls in Europe. It has three levels. It can take more than hour to climb up to the top. You can get wet a bit from water dust so put proper clothes on.

    We hit this place upon a mountain bike tour June 2004. This is one of our Austrian beauties.

    Been a couple of times and it is always inspiring especially after a rain storm. The power of the water and the roar of the waterfalls is awesome. Drawing in all the natural ozone totally refreshes you and clears the lungs. Lovely!
