HIGH MOUNTAIN RESERVOIRS KAPRUN
powered by Magic Mountains
A POWER PLANT IN THE MIDDLE OF NATURE
Since time immemorial, people have tried to extract energy from the water by means of water mills. Two gigantic descendants of these water mills can be found in Kaprun at over 2000 meters altitude in the form of two high mountain reservoirs. The falling water sets turbines inside the dam, which generate electricity.
On a guided tour, you will gain insights into the interior of the Mooserboden dam and become familiar with the process of generating electricity. And afterwards enjoy the day with a picnic at the – albeit not natural – mountain lake.
