History of Krimml Waterfalls
Europe’s highest waterfall has a great history behind it. It has won a numerous awards over the centuries. The Krimml waterfalls won the European Nature Conservation Award. In 1845, the Baedak Travel proudly declared the falls as “the monarchy’s most beautiful waterfalls behind Krimml”. And already earlier in 1796, Krimml waterfalls were called as “the biggest and most magnificent natural spectacle in the state of Salzburg”. And until then access to those waterfalls was not possible. But later, in 1879 the young Alpine Association decided to build a footpath with the bridges and platforms in three stages. And finally in the same year the new path to the falls was opened. But only after the completion of the Pinzgau Railroad line in 1967, the visitors started visiting the waterfalls.
The Power of Water
The fifth highest waterfalls have the tremendous force of water when it falls. The power of the water with which it falls from its source the Krimml River is just mesmerizing. The River has catchment area of 110 square kilometers along with 23 glaciers.
The water carrying capacity of the Krimml River is seasonal dependent and mostly it carries between 10 and 83 cubic centimeters of water per second. And on average day at the time of glacier melting period from to August water carrying capacity varies between 20 and 35 cubic meters per second. On late afternoon more and more water plunges into valley as in noon snow starts melting and sometimes creates a flood situation. And also it leads to ebb tide to prevail. The morning glaciers do not provide much water to the valley due to icy cold nights.
The Krimml Achen valley and waterfalls both were made protected by creating Hohe Tauren National park in 1984. If you are interested to watch the powerful force of the nature then best view can be seen from the “Wasserfallblick” parking lot which is alongside the Gerlos Alpine Road or you can directly go to Waterfall Trail.
