Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The draining water of the Pasterze glacier has been dammed in the turquoise Margaritzenstausee since the 1950s. The reservoir is used to generate electricity and is part of the Kaprun storage power station.

    In spring or early summer you encounter the occasional snowfield on the way to this highlight. Sometime those glide into the stausee, which is a wonderful sight to see.
