Mountain reservoirs in Kaprun
Experience the high mountain reservoirs at 2.000m
Discover the reservoires Mooserboden and Wasserfallboden embedded in the impressive mountains of the Hohe Tauern!
The dam is 107m high and 500m long – enjoy the astonishing view at the huge reservoirs at 2.000m altitude. Modern busses take you straight up into the heart of the alpine world. Europe’s largest open inclined lift is currently out of order but in season 2014 ready again
Guided dam tour
Hike at the Moserboden dam and explore its inside. You’ll learn how “green” electricity is generated through the 160 Million m³ of water, for example with the new pumped storage power station Limberg II. The Ice and Electricity visitor centre tells you about the history of the Hohe Tauern range and Tauern hydroelectricity.
The herbal path takes you from the Mooserboden reservoir to the rustic Fürthermoaralm. Along the path, you can explore the unique vegetation of the Hohe Tauern mountains. With a 45 minutes' walk (one way) and a difference in altitude of 237 metres, the herbal path is also optimally suited for families.
Ascent and descent to the dams is free with the Zell am See-Kaprun Card!
