Stuibenfall (Jerzens)

(Stuibenbachfall)

The Stuibenfall is one of the higher waterfalls in the region Tirol, Austria and is situated south of Jerzens in the Pitztal.

This waterfall is often confused with the the Stuibenfall in the valley next to it, the Oetztal. This waterfall is in the Pitztal. Although the Stuibenfall in the Pitztal falls down over 160 meters it isn’t as impressive as the Stuibenfall near Oetz.

Stuiben means something like falling down with power. The Stuibenfall cascades down over several steps and ends 160 meters down before it flows into the Mittelbergache.

There is a platform at the waterfall that can be reached directly from the starting point at Gasthof Schön near the road in the hamlet Schön. From a trail (forest path) leads towards the Stuibenfall in 20-30 minutes. Besides the platform there is another beautiful viewpoint at the Stuibenfall.

For people who don’t want to walk, from the roadside you will have also a clear view on the Stuibenfall, but that looks not as impressive when standing in front of the waterfall.

The Stuibenfall falls towards the south and can best be visited in the afternoon. I think the best time to visit the Stuibenfall is from early summer until the summer.
