Kaprun Power Station Reservoirs

RESERVOIR ASCENT - KAPRUN MOUNTAIN RESERVOIRS

Your journey up to the high mountain reservoirs begins at the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus. A bus will transport you through the Lärchwand Tunnel to the valley station for the Lärchwand inclined elevator at 1,209 m above sea level.

The journey on Europe’s largest open inclined elevator is the first highlight of your journey through the mountains of Kaprun. You will glide virtually noise-free past the mixed beech forests and craggy mountain sides to the mountain station at 1,640 m above sea level.

At the mountain station for the Lärchwand inclined elevator, close to the Limberg lock, buses await to take you past the Wasserfallboden reservoir and Fürthermoar-Alm and up to the Mooserboden reservoir at 2,040 m above sea level.

During one of the ongoing tours of the dam walls, you can find out more about how the water is used to produce this “white gold” - electricity. The “Electricity & Ice Adventure World” is located between the Mooserboden and Drossen dam walls. Here you can find out about the world of glaciers and the history of the power station.
