Krimml Waterfalls

The Krimml Waterfalls is a very unique natural wonder located in the heart of Austria. It is 380 metres tall in height and it is one of the tallest waterfalls in Europe. Krimml Waterfall will take you into spectacular views and beautiful angles. Krimml Waterfall is a fascinating place and SHOULD be on the world Heritage Site list.

History of Krimml Waterfalls

In 1796 Krimml Waterfalls was called the 'biggest and most magnificent natural spectacle' in the state of Salzburg. It was not until 1876 that the young Alphine Association planned a footpath with bridges and observation platforms along the three cascades. Then in 1967 the Krimml waterfalls won the European Nature Conservation Award.

THE ENVIRONMENT

The environment near the Krimml Waterfalls is very natural and cool. The lush vegetation can be ruined by the water over watering the plants. The plants on Krimml Waterfall will be on an extinction level and no one would be attracted. This wouldn't be a natural wonder anymore if it continues.

ARE THE WATERFALLS IN DANGER OR UNDER THREAT?

Currently, the Krimml Waterfalls are not in danger, but there are many possibilities that this will happen. For example, in the future, humans might visit there often and possibly the humans might litter, pollute and cut down the trees there. Humans could also go there and start to harm the animals that are native there. We could prevent it from happening before it even occurs. Therefore, the Krimml Waterfalls MUST be protected and should be on the World Heritage List.
