Welcome to the Danube power plant Vienna Freudenau

We’re here for you again! Take a look behind the secret of electricity generated from hydropower in Vienna.

Visit us at the Freudenau power plant and over a period of 90 minutes, experience a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of electricity generation. The stories of hydropower and of this power plant are told in the information centre with its own cinema, various exhibition objects and a large model of the power plant. Vienna Freudenau is the tenth and youngest power plant on the Danube and has been delivering electricity from hydropower since 1998. The fish bypass was the first of this size and a trailblazer for ecological power plant construction.

During the subsequent tour through the power plant, you can see the mighty machines up close – 30 metres below the water's surface you can feel the power of the Danube, which annually provides enough electricity for 280,000 households.
