Gollinger Wasserfall, Golling an der Salzach

Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
Thundering 76 m (249 ft) into the valley below, Gollinger Wasserfall represents one of Austria's most prized natural monuments. The waterfall has served as muse for many a Romantic period painter, aptly located a short distance away from a late Gothic pilgrimage church with a Baroque interior. The waterfall is a 3 km (2 mi) hike from the city center, and the trail takes visitors up a steep ascent over a romantic wooden bridge. The trail passes the "black brook," as it's called, and leads to the cave that sources the waterfall. You can drive part way up to the falls, but to reach the top you'll have to hike the remainder on foot.

  • Just a few mins walk from the free parking, you find this lovely waterfall and the nice nature around it. No need to walk all the way up, the views from down below are much nicer. Definitely worth a visit...
  • Nice waterfall, worth a quick visit. Ticket is a few euro, free with Salzburg card. At the entrance the info says 10 minutes walk, but in reality it's only 3-5 minutes. Easy to walk, but cannot be traveled with a wheelchair.
