The top (= oberer) waterfall is with its 145 metres the highest one of the 3 falls.

When you follow the scenic path behind Gasthof Schönangerl, you are at the bottom of the top fall.
When you want to reach "the top of the top", you have to walk the last part of the Wasserfallweg, which is quite steep at this last part. It's steep, but not in a way that if gets dangerous or very difficult.
Once you get up there, you'll be rewarded with a spectacular view on the waterfalls and the town of Krimml way down below !
When you continue the way from the top of the falls, you'll reach the beautiful Krimml Achen valley.

On the way from Schönangerl to the top all the way up, you'll pass again some view-spots : Staubige Reib (1330 m high), Bergerblick (1390 m). At Schettkanzel (1460 m) you are at the top and you won't regret it !!!

When you want to skip part of the path, you can take a taxi to Gasthof Schönangerl. That way you just have to walk the last (steepest) part of the Wasserfallweg.

Most of the picuters we have from the top of the falls and in the valley aren't digitalized yet, so I'll add them later !

More info on the lower fall and the middle fall in my other tips.

Directions: From Gasthof Schönangerl, follow the Wasserfallweg scenic path.
