A new Waterfall-Centre (Wasserfall Zentrum) in Krimml (Salzburg) is due to open its doors in July this year.
Since 2000, the Water-Wonder-World (Wasser-Wunder-Welt) in Krimml has attracted more than 500,000 people who come to contemplate the wonder of water. Representative for the region's governor Wilfried Haslauer said this new investment of two million Euros is important in the further-development of tourism in the region.
Johannes Hörl, general director of the construction company Großglockner Hochalpenstraße AG who also operate several of Austria's mountain roads and tourist attractions across the country, said: "The jobs in the Waterfall-Centre will be secured through new offers and investments. The cross-country vital line Gerlos Alpenstraße will now – after half a century – gain importance once again."
Mayor Erich Czerny believes the development of Krimml is indissociable from the creation of the Waterfall Centre. He said: "We are certain that the creation of the Waterfall-Centre will give an considerable impulse in making yet another tourist success-story in and around the Krimml region."
From next summer, one will be able to experience water in all its forms – for example visually and acoustically in the Emotion-Room. Amongst the new offers at the Wasserfall-Zentrum, delicacies, food and drink with a view of the world-famous Krimml waterfalls.
For more than 100 years, the waterfalls in Krimml have attracted guests from all over the world. The new centre is the perfect complement, with a scientific angle to the theme "water". Hohe Tauern National Park is undeniably quickly becoming the Mecca of Water.
