The journey is its own reward!

Hochkrimml is a small town in the community of Krimml and is located in the Gerlosplatte alpine pasture and skiing area, at 1640 metres above sea-level.
Centrally situated guest houses offer excellent hospitality. Hiking trails start from right outside their front doors, leading from Hochkrimml up onto the surrounding alpine pastures and mountains:
to Krimml's panoramic viewpoint mountain, the Plattenkogel, the lovely Samalpe, the Gletscherblickalm and the Leitenkamersteig, or into the sensational Wildgerlostal and to the Durlassboden Reservoir. Romantic alpine pastures and alpine inns offer good-quality local rest stops and the Zittauer Hütte mountain cabin sits sublimely on the Wildgerlossee lake at the foot of the Reichenspitz mountains.

As you descend the valley towards Krimml, you will see the Krimml Waterfalls, at 385 metres the highest falls in Europe.

Visitors can view them in all their magnificence by following the Waterfall Path.

From the highest level of the Krimml Waterfalls the path brings you into the Krimml Achental valley, one of the high valleys of the Hohe Tauern National Park, famous for its historic mule trail from Oberpinzgau into the South Tyrolean Ahrntal valley, and for its rich alpine pastureland.

The Warnsdorfer Hütte, the Richterhütte and the Krimmler Tauernhaus are all fantastic hiking destinations within the Hohe Tauern National Park, and will provide you with rewarding experiences of the mountain environment and alpine landscape.
