Krimml is in the Pinzgau-Vally in the state of Salzburg, Austria. Krimmel is at the border of the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern and offers many possibilities for hiking an mountain biking.

Get in

Krimml can be reached by car, train or bus.

By Car

Krimmel is located at the base of the Gerlospass, a road charged with a fee of 7 Euros per car. If you come through the Pinzgau-Vally and don't want to cross the pass, you only need to take one of the big parking grounds around the village. The fee is 4 Euros per car. If you have come across the pass or plan to cross it, you better take the parking after the toll barrier, which is free if you once have payed the charge for the pass.

By Train or Bus

The train station is 2.5 km outside of the village, but there seem to be good connections during day time.

By Bicycle

There are bicycle rentals in Krimmel and in the neighbour village Wald. Both villages claim to be "bike friendly".

Waterfalls

This is the big "must" when visiting Krimml. The water of the Ache river falls in 3 cascades through 380 meters over all. Although, impressive through all the year, the months with most water are July and August. The base of the falls is easy to reach from the village or the parking grounds (15 minutes walking on flat ground). The entrance fee is 1.50 Euros per person. You can reach the top of the falls on a wide and well implemented way. Nevertheless, 380 meters of altitude must be climbed, and sometimes, the way is really steep. Many platforms on the way give impressing views on the cascades. You also can find a simple restaurant (Jausenstation in Austrian German) on half the way to the top. If you constitution does not permit the climb, you can get a taxi bus for ca. 10 Euros per person. Open every day from 10.00 am till 5.00 pm.

WasserWunderWelt Museum

Right next to the way to the entry of the waterfalls, there is the WasserWunderWelt (Wonder World of Water) Museum with its so called outdoor Aqua-Park that shows the power of water in various ways. Explanations are in German and English.

Entry fees: 7 Euros for adults, 3.50 Euros for children from 6 to 15 years, 14.50 Euros Family Card with all children inclusive, 6 Euros for adult groups with at least 11 persons, 3 Euros for pupil groups. All prices include the fee for the waterfalls themselves.
