The impressive "Stuibenfall" waterfall in Ötztal
No other Tyrolean waterfall has a higher vertical drop than the Stuibenfall, located near Umhausen in the Ötztal. The waterfall is easily accessible via several trails, one of which features an imposing footbridge/staircase built in 2016.
With a height of 159m. is the highest waterfall in Tyrol
Hikers can reach the base of the waterfall at Niederthai and then find about 700 steps, an 80-meter exposed suspension bridge and observation platforms. From May to October, the Stuibenfall is illuminated every Wednesday night until midnight - a real highlight for visitors.
Up to 2,000 liters of water cross its rocky summit every minute.
Stuibenfall is 66 km from Innsbruck (50 minutes by car to the Bischoffsplatz car park) and can be reached on foot via Ötzi-Dorf (Am Tauferberg 8, 6441 Umhausen) in about half an hour.
