Among the highest Alpine peaks, the Wasserfallboden and Mooserboden reservoirs are surrounded by snow-covered glaciers. The high Alpine power plant, built during the 1940s and '50s, gave rise to the myth of Kaprun. With more than 100,000 visitors annually, the reservoirs are among the classic destinations of Salzburg's summer tourism. After a spectacular ascent with Europe's largest open inclined lift, visitors are given a rare view behind the scenes of electricity generation. A guided tour of the dam wall leads inside the 107m-high building. In the Electricity Adventure World exhibition explains the history of the power plant construction and details on sustainable water power. The impressive mountain scenery, well-maintained hiking trails, the world's highest fixed climbing route on a dam, an interactive trail for children and a wide range of cuisine promise discovery, recreation and sheer pleasure.
