A blend of nature and technology

An overview of the visitor attractions and information centres belonging to VERBUND, Austria's leading electricity company.

A Blend of Nature and Technology

The individual reservoirs are situated like fjords in the Austrian high mountain regions. These are technological masterpieces that have countered the challenges involved in building the dams and not only supply power, but also offer touristic highlights. VERBUND, the largest domestic producer of electricity from hydropower, offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of electricity generation at its excursion destinations. Whether visitor centres on the Danube or the Mur, or the large facilities in the Alps. We capitalise on the perfect blend of technology, nature and hydropower.


Knowledge Transfer Meets Adventure

With all of VERBUND's tourist offerings, the focus is on knowledge transfer in the form of a range of guided tours. Whether run-of-river power plants or the large pumped storage power plants in the Alps. Take a look behind the scenes of the largest hydropower electricity producer in Austria and Bavaria and have fun learning interesting facts about our present and former electricity generation.
