Kaprun Reservoirs

Approx 42 km away

The Glockner-Kaprun Tauern Power Station is definitely worth a visit. From the Mooserboden reservoir you can enjoy a magnificent view of the glaciers at the end of the Kaprun Valley in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Then wander over the Mooser dam to the “Electricity & Ice Adventure World” visitors centre or do a tour of the dam to get to know its inner workings and the safety measures taken for the structure.

Experience one of the largest hydroelectric power stations

With the Mooserboden (water capacity of 84.9 million m²) and Stausee (water capacity of 81.2 million m²) reservoirs, this is one of the most fascinating power stations in the world and gives Austria independence from nuclear power plants. The Mooserboden reservoir sits at an altitude of 2,040 m and is dammed by the 107 m high and 494 m long Mooser dam and by the 112 m high and 357 m long Drossen dam. The Wasserfallboden reservoir at an altitude of 1,670 m is supported by the 120 m high and 357 m long Limberg dam.
