The Enns River

At 254 km length, the Enns, which has its source in the Radstätter Tauern mountains and flows into the Danube near Enns, is the longest river entirely within Austria.

Storage power on the Enns

In the upper reaches of the Enns, VERBUND operates storage power plants like Hieflau. The catchment area also includes the storage power plants at Salza and Sölk with their imposing dams.
