More about the waterfall ...
The child-friendly waterfall, which can be reached with an easy hike, as the bottom of the waterfall can be reached with a 5-10 minute walk. Since 1979, the area of the Grawafall and the Sulzaubach river has been a nature reserve.
The waterfall is fed by the Blaue Lacke and Grunausee lakes and the meltwater of the Stubaier Glacier. The Sulzau stream crashes forcefully into the ground, creating a crystal basin beneath it.
At the foot of the cascading waterfall, two spectacular wooden viewing platforms were created. You can even walk along the WhiteWaterWalk trail with a stroller. While you are sitting at the observation deck, you can feel the water spray on our faces.
