3. Mischbachfall Waterfall
Enchanting Water Mist
Already from the Stubai glacier road the waterfall looks like a picture from a fairytale: high, dark mountains tower above the edge, the milky white brook runs to the edge and drops 100 metres. The water divides into two strands of water that are tossed around by the wind and take new shapes again and again. This fantastic nature spectacle is best watched close-by from the viewing platform. The water volume of Mischbachfall waterfall varies and greatly depends on rainfalls.
The most beautiful route to the waterfall starts from the bridge. Follow the road along the encased Mischbach brook. The gently rising route leads to the edge of the forest. Steeper switchbacks lead to the platform in the forest.
