Bluntaufall

(Bluntau wasserfall)

The Bluntaufall also called Bluntau wasserfall is nice waterfall, not far from Golling in the Bluntautall in the region Salzburg in Austria. The Bluntaufall forms a twin fall together with the Torrener fall but is actually a different waterfall.

From Golling you have to drive west, drive over the bridge and turn left towards Bluntautall. After a short while you have to park your car at Gasthaus Bärenhof and walk into the Bluntautall following the river for 2 kilometers (20 minutes).  I am not sure if you also can park your car in summertime at Gasthaus Bärenhof. Otherwise there is a big parking lot at Gasthof Gollhof, just after the tunnel under highway A10.

The surrounding of the Bluntautall is astonishing and really worthwhile to visit. Highlight should be the Bluntaufall (20 meters) and Torrener wasserfall which drops down over 50-100 meters.

Best time to visit the Bluntaufall or Torrener wasserfall is from may to early july when the waterfalls are fed with melting water or after heavy rainfall. I was at the Bluntaufall/Torrener wasserfall in may but there was so much snow left on the trail that is was difficult to walk to the falls.

Nearby at Golling there is the really beautiful Gollingfall/Gollinger wasserfall, also a must to visit.
