Waterfall Safety and Common Sense

The Mischbach Waterfall (also can be called Mischbachfall) was kind of a throw-in waterfall for me.

This roadside waterfall was easily seen along the L232 during the drive up to the Grawafall, and I just happened to stumble across it en route.

Indeed, it was big enough that I made it a point to stop for it and check it out a little more closely after I was done visiting the Grawa Waterfall.

This waterfall on the Mischbach Brook was said to have a 100m drop.

There was a trail that went alongside the brook from the road bridge along the L232 (see directions below).

However, given the bad weather during my visit, I resigned myself to just checking it out from afar by the road.

Had I done the hike to get up to a different lookout, it would have been around a 40-minute walk with a 200m elevation gain.

That was something I just wasn’t up for under the soggy conditions.

As I was doing my best to keep the camera from getting damaged, while taking photos and videos of what I could of the Mischbachfall from the L232, I did notice in the distance to the west some snow fields.

I’d imagine all that white atop the mountains at the head of Stubaital Valley was from the namesake Stuibai Glacier.


The Mischbach Waterfall resides in the Stubaital Valley near Neustift im Stubaital in the state of Tyrol (Tirol), Austria. It may be administered by the Neustift im Stubaital government. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, you can try visiting their website.

The Mischbach Waterfall was in the Stubaital Valley smack in the middle between the towns of Volderau and Gasteig.

It was about 9.5km before the Grawa-Alm and the Grawafall.

You can see that page for driving directions to its waterfall, and the Mischbachfall would be seen on the way.

The only difference would be that it was about 17km from the toll station to the bridge on the Mischbach along the L232.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that there was no sanctioned parking at the bridge.

Perhaps the next best bet would be to park in either the town of Gasteig or Volderau, then walk in between the towns in order to get to the bridge and subsequently view or get closer to the Mischbachfall.

Overall, the drive from Innsbruck to get here took me around 40 minutes.

For geographical context, Innsbruck was about 62km (under an hour drive) east of Imst, 65km (under an hour drive) east of Umhausen, 77km (about an hour drive) east of Landeck, 61km (under an hour drive) west of Zell am Ziller, 40km (over 30 minutes drive) north of Brenner Pass, Italy, and 64km (about an hour drive) southeast from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
