A winding road with views of the Zillertal mountain scenery

The Schlegeis Alpenstrasse Alpine Road leads to a breathtaking high mountain region. Along the 13.3 km long route, waterfalls, natural stone tunnels and many a glacial view await. For true bikers, getting there is more than half the fun - and everyone else can look forward to the emerald green reservoir and a pure mountain experience at the destination.

A look behind the scenes of electricity generation

Check out the inner workings of the 725 m wide and 131 m high Schlegeis Dam. The one-hour tour inside the Schlegeis Dam is offered every full hour between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. from June to October.

Our knowledgeable staff offers you the rare opportunity to get to know the inner workings of the 131 m tall, double-curved arch-gravity dam. You walk into the first inspection walkway of the 725 m long dam, the longest that VERBUND has. Our guides are eager to explain the complicated technical measuring and control devices in the dam in a way that you can understand.

Meeting place and registration for the tour at the marked meeting point in front of the Bergrestaurant Schlegeis. This is also where you get the tickets for your tour beforehand. We request that you notify us in advance of groups of 15 or more persons.
