Krimml Falls was another lucky find in the guidebook, which only had one paragraph describing it as Europe’s highest waterfall and one of Austria’s most unforgettable sights.
I thought it’d be a fun break from museums and castles, but wasn’t sure we’d make it because it was several hours out of the way between Salzburg and Innsbruck. Last minute we decided to X driving the Grossglockner Alpine Road off our itinerary and just do the waterfalls, which cut the drive in half. I’m so glad we made the effort because it was worth it.
Somehow we didn’t expect it to be such a hike, and yet it was. There were multiple times on our way to the top that I told Lance there was no way I even wanted to keep going, let alone could. But we of course did, because I can’t give up. The weather was cool and it would occasionally sprinkle, but for the most part we had clear skies and great lighting for views and pictures. Lila slept strapped to Lance — a reoccurring event that contributed to him coming home so physically tired each night!
The way down was much easier, and at the bottom we got ice cream cones and let Lila play at the park. It was such an unexpectedly fun day!
