Foissbachfall

(Foißbachfall)

The Foissbachfall is a waterfall in the Obersulzbachtal near Wald im Pinzgau in the region Tirol, Austria.

To reach the Foissbachfall you have to drive to the parking lot Hopffeldboden in Sulzau. From here the trail into the Obersulzbachtal starts. I can remember that we had the idea to go with our bikes, but the trail was very steep, so we returned to the car…. I have read that there is also a taxi is going into the Obersulzbachtal (euro 10 p/p) that leads along the Foissbachfall and goes to the end of the valley. The trail is open from May to October.

A hike to the the Foissbachfall takes about 1,5 hours and leads to an altitude of 1500 meters (from 1000 meters) to the Berndlalm and Poschalm. For the real hikers, they can go on for another 2 hours to the Sulzsee on an altitude of 2204 meters and a beautiful view on one the highest mountains of Austria the Grossvenediger.

From the Poschalm you will have a good view on the Foissbachfall which has a height of appr. 40 meters. Best time to visit the Foissbachfall is in the morning. When you take pictures you will photograph towards the northwest (from the Poschalm). Best season to visit the Foissbachfall is the early summer, maybe late spring.

The Foissbachfall is maybe a waterfall that people won’t notice. Just before you arrive at the Foissbachfall there is the Seebachfall, one of the highest waterfall in Austria with a height over 300 meters with quit a respectable volume.
