From the car park “Bischoffsplatz” the way leads past the Ötzi village, birds of prey park and forest cafe “Stuböbele” to the foot of the Stuibenfall. The walk from the car park to the foot of the Stuibenfall (gravel place with benches) takes about 30-40 minutes and is also ideal for children and strollers. From the gravel place you walk on a narrow trail to a way- and step construction (about 700 steps, an 80 meter long, exposed suspension bridge), past viewing platforms and thunderous masses of water to the highest point of the waterfall, a fixed suspension bridge. There you cross the natural spectacle, experience fantastic views into the depths and reach the last platform, which rounds off the Stuibenfall experience in all its uniqueness at a dizzying height. From there it takes about 20 minutes to get to Gasthof Stuibenfall.
