Haus des Wassers
Haus des Wassers – WasserWelten Krimml
Multifaceted water and health exhibition
The Haus des Wassers (Eng. “House of Water”) is located opposite the waterfall centre, where you can purchase your affordable combined ticket for all attractions of the WasserWelten Krimml! The exhibition is mainly about communicating knowledge. Here you’ll learn everything about the wet element, which plants, animals and humans all need to survive and thrive. But how many litres of water does a person need per day? What effect does global warming have on the world’s water reserves? Home many litres of water does the average Central European use up per day and how many cubic metres of water whoosh down the Krimml Waterfalls on a daily basis? Numbers, data and facts descriptively illustrate how important water is for all life on earth.
The WasserKino: interactive pictures of moving waterChildren and adults can get involved at the WasserKino cinema and project water pictures onto the walls thanks to innovative technology and specifically programmed projectors. What happens when you gently sweep across the water’s surface, cautiously tap it or forcefully wipe across it? You might see what comes out of the tap in a different light after visiting the WasserKino, because there would be no life on earth without water. What a great element: we can drink it, clean ourselves with it, play and even swim in it!
Hohe Tauern Health – initiative for allergy sufferers and asthmaticsFind detailed information about the Hohe Tauern Health initiative at the Haus des Wassers. It has been known for some time that repeated stays in the spray of the Krimml Waterfalls can alleviate or heal the ailments of allergy sufferers or asthmatics. The Krimml Waterfalls create their very own microclimate in its close range. The fine spray consists of negatively charged water fragments, also known as nano aerosols, which infiltrate the respiratory tracts particularly deeply, deploying their cleaning and immunising effect. The Krimml Waterfalls are recognised as a natural source of healing; the effect of a waterfall therapy lasts up to four months! Tip: the Hohe Tauern Health initiative offers several health packages.

Best views of the Krimml Waterfalls from the Haus des WassersThe sight of the mighty water masses cascading down from a height of 380 m is nothing short of impressive. It’s certainly worth observing the cascades up close. The best way to do so is through the Swarovski telescope at the Haus des Wassers. A unique view of Europe’s highest waterfalls and their surroundings can be enjoyed from the top floor. Did you know that the Krimml Waterfalls have their own “tides”? The amount of water changes in certain rhythms depending on time of day and season. The daily warming of the glacier in the catchment area of the Krimmler Ache, the snowmelt in spring and the first night-time frosts have an effect on these special daytime and night-time rhythms!
What would like to do after visiting the exhibition at the Haus des Wassers? Our suggestion: discover the adjacent Aquapark! Get active yourself, whether it’s Kneipping or numerous water experiments.
