When Is the Best Time

The waterfall and trails are open throughout the year. You have to pay an entrance fee from mid-April/ May until end of October daily from 9 am to 5 pm the last admission at 4.30 pm.

An average of 450,000 m³ of water plunges down the falls a day in summer, which is 5.6 m³ per second. The waterfall is at its peak late evening due to the midday melted water of the glacier. Best sunlight for the waterfalls at noon. The waterfall has only a fraction of water in winter. In winter, you walk at your own risk, and it can be a bit difficult to hike to the topmost part; the lowest part is mostly possible. Every Wednesday a guided torch hike is offered at 8.30 pm. The meeting point is the bandstand in Krimml.

Crowds 

It is a very popular natural spectacle with more than 400.000 visitors each year therefore very crowded at Eastern and in summer – viewer people in the morning. Very special in winter.
