Beyond the pistes
in a winter paradise
The Krimml Waterfalls – the largest waterfalls in Europe are not only a breathtaking natural spectacle in summer, but also show their most beautiful and romantic side in winter. Floodlit every Wednesday until 9.30 p.m. Admire this exceptional natural spectacle.
TIP: Romantic torchlight hike to Europe’s largest waterfalls every Wednesday
We highly recommend taking one of the torchlight hikes to the waterfall. In the warm glow of the flickering fire, the area around the waterfall looks like an enchanted winter forest and the reflected snow creates incredibly beautiful mood lighting. Welcomed by a group of local brass musicians at the snow-covered waterfall, the atmosphere is finally perfect.
- Meeting place: 8.30 p.m. at the music pavilion in Krimml (29.12.2021-23.03.2022)
