Häselgehr Wasserfall


Häselgehr wasserfallThe Häselgehr Wasserfall or Häselgörbfall is an gorgeous waterfall near Ehrwald/Lermoos in the region Tirol, Austria.

From Ehrwald or Lermoos you have to drive north over road 187 towards Garmisch Partenkirchen in Germany. Just outside Lermoos you will see a bridge on the left side of the road going over the river Loisach. Park the car here (gps 47.418407, 10.916243). The parking is not very big but the Häselgehr Wasserfall is quite unknown, so parking must be possible.

From the parking cross the bridge and go right ont a path paralel to the river. In a few minutes you walk to the base of the nice looking Häselgehr Wasserfall. There is a picnic spot in front of the waterfall and in summertime children can play in the pool at the base of the Häselgehr Wasserfall.

Häselgehr wasserfallThe Häselgehr Wasserfall drops down over 61 meters (measured) before it ends in the river Loisach. The source of the river Häselgehrbach lies in the mountains above the Häselgehr Wasserfall with the mountain peak Daniel as the highest with its 2.342 meters.

Although the Häselgehr Wasserfall only has a single drop of 29 meters and a total of 61 meters it looks higher. The Häselgehr Wasserfall lies in a beautiful natural environment and is easy to access. For people who dare, you can walk behind the waterfall with a little bit of climbing.

Best time to visit the Häselgehr Wasserfall is in the morning with the sun in your back: the Häselgehr Wasserfall falls towards the east, so when taking pictures the best time is in the morning. Best season to visit the Häselgehr Wasserfall is springtime but summertime is perfect with children. 

In summertime the volume of the river Häselgehrbach is low but still enough to shower under the waterfall and to enjoy the scenic setting. The first pictures are taken August 2015, the warmest summer ever in Austria with weeks of temperatures above 30C.

End February 2020 we stayed in Garmisch Partenkirchen, a 20 minute drive from the waterfall. I was surprised to see that the volume of the Häselgehr Wasserfall was quite pleasant and the sky above was blue. This resulted in some nice pictures (the last ones).
