Gerlos - Krimml
Krimmler Watherfalls
highest waterfalls in Austria

The Krimmler waterfalls are the highest waterfalls in Austria with a total drop height of 385 m. They are located on the edge of the village Krimml (Salzburg) in the national park Hohe Tauern. They are formed by the Krimmler Ache, which falls down into three falls at the end of the high Krimmler Achental. The river then flows into the Salzach, which continues along the Pinzgau towards Salzburg and the mouth of the Inn.

The exceptional fall height (the upper, middle and lower reaches of a height of 145 m, 100 m and 140 m) is due to the geological origin of this mountainous region. During the bulging of the central Alpine parts some 30 million years ago, African with the Eurasian plate, the upper Salzachtal remained. This difference in altitude was further strengthened during the ice age by a powerful ice stream, which cut the main valleys deeply.
