The power of water – The Krimml Waterfalls

In the west part of High Tauern National Park you can find tremendous Krimml Waterfalls, which are Europe?s highest ones with a total height of 380 m across three cascades. The Waterfalls are filled with glacial water of the Venediger Group.The way to the waterfalls is wide and the first cascade do not require any special boots or being in great shape.However, if you plan on longer stay, remember to take with you appropriate shoes, clothes and a lot of water! The trail that leads to cascades is pleasant but ascends pretty high. It takes 3-4 hours to cover with no hurry this 4 km long route. If you do not have so much time, the first part of the route can be even covered within an hour. There is Wasser Wunder Welt Krimml next to a parking lot, which is designed for coaches as well. This exhibit uses multimedia and experiments by means of mini windmills and pipes to present the element of water. It is only 50 minutes away from our Hotel if you drive a car. You cannot miss it!

 

Hohenwerfen Fortress.  in Salzachtal Valley

Coming to our Hotel or just spending time in Fusch you can vary your stay by visiting the Salzach valley which delights at every step. It wonderfully rambles among alpine summits and is often a referance point for crucial tourist attractions. This concerns the area around Werfen, where by the river stands Hohenwerfen fortress surrounded by the Tennengebirge and Hagengebirge mountain range. It comes from 11thcentury when Abp. Gebhard had fortresses built to protect the estate. The fortress sits enthroned atop a rocky 113 m-high dome, which used to make it impregnable. We have no doubts that the fortress will enravish you. There must be a reason why it is put on almost every Salzburg postcard. If you are lucky, you will have a chance to take part in a festival or a knightly tournament. Everyday there are two displays of birds of prey – the first one before and the second one after noon. You will have no difficulties with finding the fortress. It takes 20 minutes from a parking. If you do not wear proper shoes, you?d better use a cable railway. To find more information visit: http://www.salzburg-burgen.at/de/werfen/erlebnisburg-hohenwerfen/index.htm
