Biking adventure in Carinthia

It has already become a tradition: the VERBUND motorcycle blessing at the Kölnbreinsperre Dam in the Maltatal Valley. Every year at the beginning of July, bikers from all over Austria meet on Austria's highest dam.

20th VERBUND motorcycle blessing at the Kölnbreinsperre Dam

Biking adventure in Carinthia

On Sunday, 1 July 2018 at 12 noon it is again possible to get a blessing for the motorcycle season at one of the loveliest spots in Austria.

VERBUND invites you to the motorcycle blessing at Austria's highest dam. Experience the blend of nature and technology.

Approaching with the curving stretch of road through the Maltatal Valley, also called the "valley of falling water", the day belongs to the bikers. After the line-up on the Kölnbreinsperre Dam, at about 12 noon the bikers who are present, as well as their motorcycles, will be blessed. The participating motorcyclists are then protected by St. Christopher - for an accident-free motorcycle season.

Following the contemplative part of the event, VERBUND is offering a varied supporting programme in the area of the Kölnbreinsperre Dam and the Berghotel Malta***, with free dam tours and live music on the panoramic terrace of Berghotel Malta, where you may also enjoy culinary delights.

For a daring glimpse into the abyss there is the Airwalk, a viewing platform of a very special kind at the Kölnbreinsperre Dam. Anyone who dares to go out on the platform has the feeling of floating over the abyss. Large seat steps in the middle of the platform invite you to enjoy the impressive panorama. Interested persons can take a discovery trip into the world of electricity generation with a free dam tour and a visit to the VERBUND Energy World in Malta.
