    The Art Nouveau hydroelectric power plant is located in Heimbach and was put into operation in 1905.
    The hydroelectric power station draws its water from the Urft dam via the Kermeterstollen, which merges into two pressure pipes 110 m above the power plant.

    The power station is still in operation and can be visited by appointment.

    In any case, this hydroelectric power plant is worth seeing. It is one of the few industrial buildings in Art Nouveau style. It is still in operation today and can be visited.

    Nice power plant in the Art Nouveau style, but is not driven by the Rur, but about the Kermeterstollen about 70m further above and fed by the Urfttalsperre.

    The power plant is beautifully lit at night! The visit is well worth it in the evening in any case.

    Great building from the imperial period (1904/05). Would like to go in, but was not possible that day ... but you can look at it under certain circumstances. Simply a beautiful industrial monument.

    Super nice old power plant located on a mountain slope. The architecture of the building is fascinating.

    Nice, well-kept building. Interesting, if unusual, is the Art Nouveau construction

    "... The Heimbach power plant is located in Heimbach in the North Eifel and was put into operation in 1905. The water power plant draws its water from the Urfttalsperre via the Kermeter tunnel, which merges into two pressure pipes 110 m above the power plant. The power plant is still in operation today The original equipment, with eight Francis turbines, each driving its own 1,500 kilowatt generator, was in operation for almost 70 years.The turbines were decommissioned in 1975 and replaced by two new, more efficient machines, and one has been installed since then Output of 16,000 kilowatts to cover peak loads. Some of the old machines have remained in place, as the new power generators take up significantly less space.
