Mischbachfall

The Mischbachfall is a 160 meter high waterfall east of Volderau (Stubaital) in the region Tirol. The Mischbachfall is not always a very spectacular waterfall. I visited the Mischbachfall in May when the flow in the river was reduced to a tiny stream (last 2 pictures). But in the early summer the river Mischbach swells to a powerful river and from that moment the Mischbachfall is one of the nicer waterfalls in Tirol (first 4 pictures).

The Mischbachfall lies directly next to road 183 that leads to the end of the Stubaital. You have to pay toll (euro 3) to get into the Stubaital. From the roadside you will have a clear view on the Mischbachfall, but in 5 minutes you can walk to the base of the Mischbachfall where you have a great view from the wooden bridge over the Mischbach.

The lower part of the Mischbach isn’t really a waterfall but descends 80 meters. The upper part of the Mischbachfall has a single drop of 160 meters (measured with a laser height meter) and is really impressive.

It is also possible to walk to walk up to the Mischbachalm (steep trail) and another great viewpoint on the Mischbachfall. In 30 minutes you can reach the viewpoint starting from the roadside.

The Mischbachfall is named after the river Mischbach and falls towards the north. Best time to visit the Mischbachfall is from noon in summertime.

There are several other great waterfalls in the Stubaital like the Grawafall and the Mutterbergklamm wasserfall at the end of the valley.
