"Electrical Power and Ice" experience World
At the "Electrical Power and Ice" visitor center two displays are waiting for you: "Tauernstrom" takes you back into the 50's, the era of the "Kaprun men". The "Glacier Ice" display takes you into the world of Alpine glaciers! You will be standing in a unique Diarama (slide show) - just as if you were standing right on the very glacier - and will be looking to the Mooserboden artificial storage lake.
Kaprun - A story of success
As far back as in the 20's and 30's the first plans were made for building a storage power plant in the Kaprun valley. In 1955 the power plant was completed with Marshall Plan funds. Due to the motivation of the "Kaprun men" and its huge size, the power plant became the symbol of the Austrian reconstruction.Adventure-packed excursion destination. The adventure begins at the Kesselfall Alpenhaus, where a free parking space is reserved for you.
Transfer busses will take you to the Lärchwand diagonal lift - the largest in Europe. The route leads past the bottom of the waterfall to the Mooserboden reservoir at an altitude of 2,040 m, affording a wonderful view of the Hohe Tauern glaciers. Your adventure is rounded off by culinary delicacies at the Mooserboden restaurant and the extraordinary documentary "World of Adventure - Power and Ice" at the visitors' center.
