Airwalk at the Kölnbreinsperre
Dizziness dare on the Airwalk at the Kölnbreinsperre. They are rewarded with a breathtaking view from the glass platform to the mountain peaks all around.
Deep view into the "valley of the falling water"
Large seating areas in the middle of the platform invite you to linger, enjoy, admire and enhance the character of modern design, which deliberately incorporates the guiding theme of the Maltatals - the "Valley of the Drowning Waters" - into its formal language. The curved atrium shape of the Airwalk allows many visitors to drop their own looks, thoughts and emotions.
In touch with the wall
The viewing platform also allows access to the outer shell of the wall (which is otherwise not possible), which archs over the heads of the visitors. These can attack the wall, imagine the enormous amounts of water behind them and feel the power of the structure.
into the interior of the Kölnbreinsperre
Austria's highest dam wall can also be explored from the inside: Accompanied by a guide, you can see with your own eyes how electricity is generated from hydropower.
Supported by multimedia facilities, experienced dam makers explain how the water produces the "white gold" - the electric current.
The ongoing tours take about 1 hour.
