2.2. The individual services can be viewed on the website at www.verbund.com/tourismus. The presentation and pricing of the services on the website exists to provide the customer with information only and does not constitute a legally binding offer. Information on available dates is shown on the website or in the online form for the individual services.

The prices shown in the contract offer are deemed as agreed. All prices shown are final prices inclusive of all statutory taxes and charges.
§ 4 Formation of contract / payment / withdrawal

The rules for managing COVID-19 apply at the VERBUND excursion destinations. In particular, we ask our guests to follow the rules on social distancing and – where required – to wear a mask (e.g. on the dam tour and in enclosed rooms). Where possible, we will help you to support the rules – please also help us with this. The situation makes it necessary to adjust procedures, activities and offerings. This also means that the size of the tour groups can be reduced. We are doing our best to create an optimal visitor experience and apologise in advance if some of the offerings are not available in the usual form.

VERBUND Information Centre Mayrhofen
Right next to the power plant in the town of Mayrhofen is the VERBUND Information Centre Mayrhofen. The exhibition offers interesting information about electricity generation in the Zillertal valley and is open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm all year round with free admission.
Guided tours for groups and schools
The perfect way to convey knowledge is to combine a guided tour in the Mayrhofen information centre with a guided tour of the dam at the Schlegeis reservoir (can also be combined with a meal in the mountain restaurant if required). We would be pleased to put together a tailored programme for groups.
Dam wall tour
The dam wall tour takes visitors into the interior of the 725 m-long and 131 m-high Schlegeis dam. The guided tour into the Schlegeis dam is held daily between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, from June to October. The tour lasts approx. 1 hour, but unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible.
The meeting point for the guided tour is the "s'Raschtl" snack bar right by the dam, where registration will also take place. You will be given the tickets for the guided tour there.
Please note that you must notify us of groups of more than 15 people.
