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.
