The Grawa Waterfall in the Stubaital valley belongs to the WildWaterTrail and is a popular destination for ice climbers
In the rear Stubaital valley, about 15 km from Neustift im Stubaital and only 1 km from the Stubai Glacier, there is the great natural monument of the Grawa Waterfall. Its waters cascade about 100 metres down into the depth. In 1979 this waterfall, by the way one of the most beautiful waterfalls of Austria and one of the widest of the East Alps, was officially declared a natural monument.
The Grawa Waterfall (Grawa Wasserfall) is located near the Grawa Mountain Hut, a popular rest point. Already from the alpine pasture, located underneath the Glacier Road at 1,530 m a.s.l., you can admire the waterfall. Within a short walk of 15 minutes you reach the lower panoramic platform, which makes you best admire the rushing and thundering of the Sulzbach brook.
The trail that takes to the upper platform is a little more challenging, but provides a breathtaking view. The Grawa Waterfall is integrated into the Stubai WildWaterPark and the WildWaterTrail, aimed at bringing the most beautiful water places of the valley nearer to visitors. In winter, the waterfall attracts above all ice climbers, and of course also spectators watching the ice acrobats.
