Umbal Falls water theme path

A natural landmark in Tyrol

You definitely have to visit the spectacular Umbal falls. This nature-power path is more than just Europe's first water theme path. It is also a natural landmark in the state of Tyrol.

Water is an elemental force. You can see the unbelievable power of this element in glacial rivers, where they can still freely carve their path through solid rock. The Isel arises in the Umbaltal, and it is the last free flowing glacial river. The so-called Umbal falls impressively make their way from the Umbalkees into the Virgental in Prägraten. It is a roaring natural spectacle when the water rushes over many levels, eddies, and currents into the valley. The starting point of this nature-power path is the parking lot in Ströden in Prägraten. In around 2.5 hrs., this easy hike leads to the Blinig, a turnaround point above the Umbal falls.

The Umbal falls are a popular attraction especially in late spring and high summer. This is when the warm temperatures reach the glaciers of the Hohe Tauern. The streams begin to rise, and the melted glacier ice makes its way into the valley. Experience the unique beauty of the Isel. The tour leads through 7 stages. Whether high above a gorge or near the water - on the platforms, harmoniously integrated into nature, you can feel the power of untamed nature in the truest sense of the word. The water theme path is like a journey back in time into the primeval history of centuries-old mountain nature - a dynamic habitat full of rare plants and animals.
