A scenic family walk leads from the Texelbahn Cable Car mountain station down to the base of the waterfall.
Considered one of the most spectacular in the Alps, the Parcines waterfall cascades down the rock face from a height of almost 100 m. It is particularly impressive in early spring with the melting of snow, when as many as 6,000 liters of water per second flow into the Zielbach torrent.
