Electricity generation up close
The volume of traffic on the Schlegeis Alpine Road has risen sharply in recent years. VERBUND and its regional partners have set themselves the goal of reducing the volume of traffic and the environmental burden in stages over the coming years. There is usually only a limited number of parking spaces available for visitors in July and August. We therefore recommend that you make your way to our excursion destination by bus!

Your safety is important to us! The start or end of season can therefore change at any time due to the weather and avalanche situation. Please check the current operating times before departure in the months of May and October.
