The Stuibenfall is Tyrol’s most impressive and beautiful waterfall. It has a drop of 159 metres and has two fall steps. Its water comes from the Zwieselbachferner and the Grastalferner. A water quantity of 610 litres per second goes over the falls on average per year. On high days, it can even be more than 2,000 litres per second. You can reach the waterfall from the “Ötztal Arena” campsite through the Ötzi village in just 30 minutes. Benches invite visitors to spend some time and a steep path leads 150 metres up to the Gasthof Stuibenfall restaurant (approx. 50 minutes) all while keeping the cascades in view.
Lantern hike to the Stuibenfall waterfall
Every Wednesday evening, we hike to the lit Stuibenfall waterfall. The “Weisenbläser” group accompanies the excursion and provides background music for this romantic hike.
A stay at the Stuibenfall increases lung health
A preclinical study from the Paracelsus Private Medical University of Salzburg has documented that lung health, relating to athletic asthma, is improved by a visit to the waterfall. An hour at the Stuibenfall waterfall, over a two to three week time period, can improve lung health, relating to athletic asthma, by up to 58 percent.
