Krimml Waterfalls Natural Site

The Krimml Falls are located at the north-western margin of the Hohe Tauern, near the Tyrolian border in the area of Krimml, the westernmost community of the federal Land of Salzburg. The Hohe Tauern are part of the impressive and diverse range of the Eastern Alps, in which lies the highest mountain of Austria, the Grossglockner (3798 m.). The northern valleys of the Hohe Tauern often have U-shaped cross-sections and hanging valleys, due to the action of ice, above the main Valley, which is dissected by gorges. Many waterfalls are found there and among them the falls of the Krimml Ache. With a drainage area of 110.7 km² and a total fall of 380 metres and an average discharge of 7 cubic metres of water per second, they rank eighth among the great waterfalls of the world.
