Kaprun high mountain reservoirs

General information

The two high mountain reservoirs lie like two fjords in the back of the Kaprun valley - nestled between the three-thousand-meter peaks of the Alps and on the border with the Hohe Tauern National Park. In the post-war period, a myth was coined here that can still be traced. The history and challenges of the building as well as the overwhelming technical achievement that was realized here in the middle of the Alps are presented in two languages ​​in the world of electricity.
Here the power of water and the possibilities of generating electricity from hydropower are conveyed up close. Especially for families, the adventure play stations in the "Electricity Trail" are waiting to bring the subject of hydropower and energy generation closer to you in a playful way. VERBUND opens its gates and gives an insight into the interior of the Moosersperre and the modern power generation as part of a dam wall tour.
