The wind farm Bruck an der Leitha was erected in the year 2000. A group of committed people planned and financed this wind farm - at that time for climate protection reasons and to boost the regional value added.
A wind measurement, which was carried out over a period of two years at a height of 42 meters at the top of a high voltage pylon and revealed very good wind potential, formed the basis for this wind farm.
The wind farm Bruck an der Leitha also offers a special feature: a turbine with a viewing platform. Visitors can climb an internal spiral staircase to a height of approximately 60 meters. After 279 steps you have reached your goal and can view the rotor blades from the fully glazed platform and see how wind energy is converted to rotational motion and ultimately generates electricity.
Interesting and informative information on wind power is provided at Bruck an der Leitha wind farm within the framework of guided tours.
