  Europe’s Biggest Waterfall! Europe’s biggest waterfall was the highlight of day 2 of our Austria trip, a trip through the usual “breathtaking” landscape (not hyperbole, it really is!) found us at the foot of this monster 1200 foot tall fall.

It’s a fair climb through some woods to see the falls – though they have built many viewing platforms which allow you to both rest and…
