Austria's historic and cultural allure may only be surpassed by the country's natural beauty. The Krimmler Waterfalls in the Hohe Tauern National Park are a perfect example of how mother nature must have taken a particular liking to our Alpine region. The glacial water rushes down three tiers of rock, creating a spectacle not to be missed. The falls measure an impressive 1250 feet and can be marveled at from several accessible lookout points. Feel the water's power and be amazed by the clouds of spray that fly up against a stunning backdrop of forests and mountain ranges. A great tip for a break is the Schoenangerl restaurant, which is located 4,216 ft above sea level!
