A unique interplay of the forces of nature and technical brilliance. The two lakes in the Kaprun valley are nestled like two fjords between the three-thousand-meter peaks of the Alps. Here the power of water and the possibilities of generating electricity from hydropower are conveyed up close. Especially for families, the adventure play stations in the "Electricity Trail" are waiting to bring the topic of hydropower and energy generation closer playfully.
