daily | Dam wall tour

Deep into the interior of Austria’s biggest dam

A tour of the dam gives you the opportunity to learn more about electricity generation and to explore the inside of the dam. 
The guided tours are held daily from 9 am to 4 pm and last about an hour. The meeting place is right outside the shop in the Berghotel Malta.

Viewing platform Airwalk Kölnbrein

daily | Airwalk

A slightly different kind of high-altitude adrenaline rush

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity: standing on a glass surface, with an unimpeded view 200 metres down into the bare abyss and all around a breathtaking view of the high alpine landscape of the Hohe Tauern.

Only on the Airwalk can you experience the architecture of the Kölnbrein dam in all its facets: when the wall arches over your head and the massive body of 2 million m³ of concrete spreads out in front of you – which, by the way, has almost the same volume as the Great Pyramid of Giza (2.6 million m³).
