We visited this attraction without knowing what is awaiting us. You have to park way down in the valley in a giant multi-level parking. From there you take 2 bus and 1 collective elevator. You may have seen 2 dams and accumulation lakes. A trip...More

The crazy Austrians actually built a power plant here, way up in the Alps (more than 2000m above sea level). I'll never forget the view. It was snowing in early September, so yeah, bring good clothes, especially boots!

If you arrive early enough (at 9), you can avoid the mass of people. It is very good and i think it worth the 20€. But you need luck too. Don't try to go there if you have weather, because up at the dam's the...More

Lovely views; but we had no warning that our descent would be delayed due to a bunch of sports cars ascending the route!
