The Hinterbachfall is an amazing beautiful waterfall at the end of the Toplitzsee at the left side (northshore) of the lake. The Toplitzsee is located near Gossl/Bad Aussee in the region Steiermark, Austria. From road 145 at Bad Uasse take the exit towards the Grundlsee and Toplitzee and drive on to Gossl.
From Gossl it is possible to walk to a nice viewpoint on the Hinterbichfall in 30 minutes (via the south shore) or take a boat tour over the Toplitzee where you also have an amazing view on the Hinterbichfall and other unnamed waterfalls coming down the mountains.
The Hinterbachfall is certainly one of the highest and most beautiful waterfall in the region of Steiermark. The river Hinterbach plunges down over 180 meters and ends in the Toplitzsee. The Toplitzee is one of the deepest lakes in Austria with depths over a 100 meter. In the second world war the Toplitzee was a navy testing area where rockets were tested.
The Hinterbachfall falls towards the south so you can visit the Hinterbachfall all day long, maybe I would prefer the morning.
