There were 842 people living there on january 1st 2012.

Krimml is known for it's beneficial effect on ones health. Several scientific studies have proven that in the air around the falls there's a very high concentration of negative air ions. This has a positive effect on everyone suffering from respiratory diseases.

To see and do

The most famous attraction in Krimml are without a doubt the huge waterfalls.
These falls are 'created' by the river Krimmler Ache and end up eventually in the Salzach river.

Also very lovely is the Krimmler Achental (the Krimml Achen Valley). You can reach it by walking the scenic path next to the waterfalls.

This path is asphalted, but can get a little steep at some points. It's a quite broad path that doesn't get dangerous anywhere.
On some of our visits I've seen people pushing strollers up ... doable but I wouldn't advise it, at least not all the way up ... not if you still want to feel your arms and legs after your walk ... :-)

Right in front of the waterfalls is WasserWunderWelt (Wonder World of Water).
This is a fantastic visit with kids, on a rainy day but always better on a sunny day.
The WWW was closed until the end of June 2013 due to reorganisation! - the park reopened on june 29 2013. Curious to see how it all turned out after re-building ... We'll know soon enough ...

More info about this in my tips !

Great sign !

This is a sign on the path to the lower waterfall ... one of the best I've ever seen !

Freely translated :

"Intelligent people don't pollute paths and woods, to all others it's forbidden to do so!"
