Riva, Cascata di

(Reinbach wasserfall, Reinbachfälle)

Cascata di Riva, also called Reinbach wasserfall or Reinbachfälle is a powerful waterfall near Campo Tures (Brunico) in the region Alto Adige in Northern Italy.

The river Reinbach/Rio di Riva flows near the village Campo Tures/Sand in Taufers in the river Ahr and is fed by the glacial runoff at the Rieserferner and the water deposits that are formed at the Durreck. Just east of Campo Tures, at point Tobl the Reinbach tries to find its way through a ravine and forms three spectacular waterfalls. The force of the water is also used to generate electricity power.

There are two possibilities to walk to Cascata di Riva/Reinbach wasserfall: ascent from Bad Winkel, a suburb of Sand in Taufers, or descent from Tobl-point. The hike is moderately strenuous, but all the more impressive. The upper Reinsbach drops 50 meters and on the bridge you experience the power of the Cascata di Riva/Reinbach wasserfall. The two lower falls have a height of 10 and 15 meters. If you count in the smaller part of the waterfall the total height is 115 meters.
