Nassfeld Waterfall (Austria)
by Ruth Williams
The Nassfeld Waterfall is high in the mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Although at an alltitude of 2528m above sea level it is easily accessible as it sits beside the Grssglockner High Alpine Road. This spectacular toll road which is one of the highest in Europe is 48km long and has 36 hairpin bends.
The fall drops in several stages and is located on one of the hairpins on the section of road that leads to Kaiser-Franz-Joseph-Höhe and the Pasterze Glacier. There is a small area to park and the fall is just a few minutes walk.
