Hiking to Krimml Waterfall: Europe's Highest Waterfall - Monkeys and Mountains | Adventure Travel Blog

· by · Krimml Waterfall is the highest waterfall in Europe and the world's fifth highest waterfall! It's no wonder the 380 meter (1246 ft) waterfalls are one of Austria's most visited attractions.

Tour du Mont Blanc: How to Plan your Own Trek | Monkeys and Mountains

The Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) is listed as not only one of Europe's classic hikes, but one of the best in the world!
