Parcines Waterfall

With a waterfall drop of almost 100 metres, the Parcines Waterfall is one of the most impressive of the entire Alpine area.

If you look towards Parcines from Tel, you will immediately see the huge waterfall on the rock faces of the Val di Tel valley. With a drop of 97 metres, the Parcines Waterfall - “Partschinser Wasserfall” in German, “Cascata di Parcines” in Italian - is one of the largest of South Tyrol.

Depending on rainfall or the intensity of snow melt on the peaks of the Texel Group, it carries between 4,000 and 10,000 litres of water per second. Beautiful: depending on the solar radiation, there might sometimes be a rainbow.

If you would like to admire the astonishing power of water, we recommend you to walk to the waterfall from the village of Parcines. The path takes you across the Val di Tel and on the Parcines Waalweg path to Tablà and on the Monte Sole (approx. 3 hours). The best viewpoint can be reached from the Wasserfall tavern, located right underneath the waterfall, in a walk of 10 minutes only. In the high season, there is also a bus running from Parcines village (Partschins).
