You’ll arrive safely and in comfort at the Mooserboden with shuttle buses and Europe’s biggest open inclined lift. Expert guides let you take a look behind the scenes of electricity generation from hydropower on a dam wall tour. The exhibition “Electricity Adventure World” presents interesting information on the construction of Austria’s most important power plant.
For families, there’s Stromi’s children’s learning trail, on which the little ones can also learn about the relationships between nature and technology in a playful way. Well developed hiking trails and MOBO 107, the highest via ferrata on a dam wall, promise adventure and the experience of nature. Or simply enjoy the three-thousand-metre summits of the Hohe Tauern from the sun terrace of the mountain restaurant and be pampered with regional specialities at the cosy Fürthermoaralm.
