Günster waterfall Tour

Open
Be very close to the highest waterfall in Styria!
With a drop of 65 meters, the waterfall is the highest in Styria. 250-300 liters per second rush down over the two cauldrons ground out by the water and the three imposing cascades. Since 1906, the entire waterfall is also accessible by footpaths and stairs. This well-built path, secured by railings, leads to the highest point of the waterfall. On the numerous bridges you will always have a fascinating view of the foaming force of the water. A fabulous excursion for young and old!
