Travel Tips for Krimml
Rainbow at Krimml Waterfalls
When you are at Krimml Waterfalls, it is possible to see one or even two rainbows when you are at one of the lookout points near to the waterfalls because of the cloud of small water droplets sprayed from the waterfalls reflect light from the sun. I was lucky to be able see the rainbow and please visit the travelogue section of this VT page for more photos of the rainbow.
Beautiful flowers & summer
When my wife and I were at Krimml Waterfalls in June 2007, we saw lots of beautiful and colourful flowers due to the fact that it was summer in Austria. However, the weather tends to be hot during summer and cloudy so you may not be able to see the mountains sometimes. Another good thing about summer is the long daylight hours (the sunset was at about 9pm when we were in Austria).
Farms along the journey
My wife and I enjoyed the bus journey from Zell Am See to Krimml Waterfalls and back, especially the beautiful farmland along the way, and not forgetting the cows :) As a whole, Austria is a very clean and neat country, and this can be reflected from what we see along the way to Krimml Waterfalls.
The Falls will be a constant reminder
It should go without saying - wear sensible shoes - trainers are good or walking boots. I always pack some hand sanitizer - a perfect way to keep your hands clean without the need for water or towels. As well as your camera and photo chips take some tissues - they come in useful to dry your camera lense which does get a bit wet here. Seeing all that fresh water will constantly remind you of a need for water - take some with you - I did get used to drinking luke warm water but have found out you can now get water bottles with a removable centre ice stick - very handy for keeping the water cool.
Once the water reaches the bottom of Krimml Waterfalls, it will flow as a river pass the town of Krimml into the surrounding valley. During the bus journey there, you should be able to see this river flowing next to towns and farmland. Also, the river can be seen clearly at the lower falls, especially the biggest and most impressive falls right at the bottom.
