Bike Touring Highlight
07/07/2018 - At the barrage you can watch the ship raise / lower in peace, guided tours are also offered here.
18.09.2018 - The size of the power plant is impressive - great. But the Freudenau power plant can only be crossed by bike or on foot; it is the tenth and last of the Austrian Danube power plants.
Visit us at the Freudenau power plant and experience an exciting look behind the scenes of power generation in 90 minutes. In the information center with its own cinema, various exhibits and a large power plant model, the story of hydropower and that of the power plant is told. Vienna-Freudenau is the tenth and youngest power plant on the Danube and has been supplying electricity from hydropower since 1998. The fish pass was the first of its size and trend-setting for ecological power plant construction. 😊👍👍

Viennese Danube power station Freudenau on the city boundary Vienna Lower Austria.
Parallel to this, the Vienna port with the container port and further down the Danube down the Albener harbor with the "cemetery of nameless".
From the bridge you have a good view of the ports and along the Danube.
It is also very easy to observe and track the smugglings of large tugs and passenger ships.

Hi Peter. I don't want to shit smart, but in Austria there is no ship lifting system, only locks. The ship is raised with the help of rising or falling water levels, which takes a long time. A ship lift like the one in Niederfinow (D), for example, lifts the ship (s) including a lot of water up into a trough. That takes 5 minutes in Niederfinow for about 60m. In China you can admire the world's tallest elevator with a lifting height of 120 m.
