Around Ötzi Village and Birds of Prey Park

Stuibenfall – Largest Waterfall in Tyrol

With a drop of 159 m, the Stuibenfall is the largest waterfall in Tyrol. A new path and step construction gives you the chance to get close up and ensures simple access. More than 700 steps and an 80 meter long suspension bridge make a hike along the roaring waterfall an unforgettable experience.

Via Ferrata directly on the Stuibenfall

An approximately 450-meter-long via ferrata with moderate difficulty leads left along the Stuibenfall. For those daring enough, crossing the waterfall on almost invisible wire cables directly in front of the natural stone bridge is an amazing experiance. The equipment can be rented in Umhausen and Niederthai.
