Like a cloudburst in the sunshine, masses of water rush over the freestanding cliff face and fall 97 meters into the depths.
Like a never-ending curtain of shiny water, the Parcines waterfall leaves a lasting impression on visitors.
Parcines/Partschins, located near Merano/Meran, is home to many picturesque lanes and historic buildings
(https://www.merano-suedtirol.it/en/partschins/artikel/historische-ansitze-schloesser-in-partschins-206/) as well as the highest waterfall in South Tyrol. Particularly impressive is the natural spectacle of the waterfall during the snowmelt in May and June or after heavy rains. During these peak times, up to 10,000 liters of water per second thunder down over the rocks. Can you imagine the sound?
The best time to visit the waterfall is on sunny days between ten and twelve o'clock, when the fine spray sparkles in all colors of the rainbow. The air at the waterfall is especially clean before sunrise and after sunset (or when the sky is cloudy). During this time, particle concentrations between 800 and 1200 / cm³ can be measured, which is close to that of the world's most outstanding clean air areas over the Northeast Atlantic or the Arctic.
