The Salza wasserfall is located near the small village Salza and is easy to reach. When driving on road E651 from Stainach to Schladming take the exit Salza. At the end of the road go left to the vacation village Salza and the power station. When the road ends park the car at the parking at the left (for free).
At the parking walk to the power station and cross the bridge. Go directly left and follow the river upstream. In 8-10 minute you reach the Salza waterfall. The track is signed with a very little sign.
I visited the Salza wasserfall July 2020 and the waterfall was quite powerful. I am not sure if it is always that powerful because the night before it had rained. The Salza waterfall is located in a gorgeous environment and is very photogenic.
There are actually two waterfalls falling in the pool in front of the Salza wasserfall. It was kind of misty above this second waterfall at the right and it looked kind of warm??? Nevertheless it was a surprise to see this second waterfall.
The river Salza drops down over 23 meter in an emerald colored pool. This is a perfect spot for a picnic or just to enjoy nature. The walk to the Salza wasserfall is short and very suitable for children.
A little further in the direction of Tauplitz you will find another gorgeous waterfall at Lessern, named …the Lessern wasserfall. This one is a little higher 32 meter, but less picturesque. Still worthwhile to visit!
A waterfall you must visit is the Riesach wasserfälle, a series of powerful plunges near Schladming. This is a hike up along the waterfall that takes approximately 50-60 minutes but you also can walk further up to the Riesachsee.
