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 at the top of hour (from 10 am to 5 pm) and last about an hour. The meeting place is right outside the shop in the Berghotel Malta.
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).
