The varied environment of Krimmler Falls changes from a vast Austrian lake district to these waterfalls in Salzburg, Austria. The truth is that it changes dramatically since you approach a hilly winding road that's besieged. Preparation to climb to the top of the waterfall starts with good sausage and a beer, or maybe two pitchers would be a better idea because your strength will start to go around 1000 meters into the climb, at least that was my experience anyway. It would be better for the elderly and most everyone to have a little more fuel on their way up. The best part of the day is looking at things from one of the many lookout points along the waterfall.
