Go on a driving holiday south to Austria and discover the Krimmler waterfall, Austria's highest waterfall with a drop height of 380 m. Find an active holiday at Risskov with child-friendly hotels and self-drive to Austria at your own pace. The great height of the falls (the top, middle and bottom falls have a height of 140, 100 and 140 m respectively) is due to the geological origin of this mountain region. With the formation of the Alps about 30 million years ago, the upper Salzach valley was left at its original depth. This difference in altitude was accentuated during the Ice Age by large ice breaks which dug the landscape deeper. The preservation of the steps of the waterfall is due to the hard granite that emerged at the edge of the fault. Take the whole family on a self-drive holiday and find cheap hotel accommodation at Risskov.
