1. Kaprun: High Mountain Reservoir Experience with Dam Tour

Experience the breathtaking Hohe Tauern mountains and see how the incredible force of nature was harnessed by man's tremendous feats of engineering. Visit 2 water reservoirs, take a free dam tour, and get a look behind the scenes.

Once at the top, you can walk along the lake and over the dam walls. At the Mooserboden kiosk you can register for one of the guided tours of the dam wall for free. Your expert guide will provide you with some interesting facts and anecdotes about the history of the dam and you will learn about the interplay between technology and nature. Get the rare opportunity to learn about the inner workings of the structure and access the first inspection walkway.
