If you think just one wind turbine is impressing, how much more stunning is a wind park of this size!

13 turbines, 66 m rotor diameter, a moving mass of 23,000 kg at a hub height of 60 m.

The Tauernwindpark is a striking example of where high tech, environmental awareness and the innovative and business spirit all come together.

The Tauernwindpark will be the first wind power plant of this size to include special attractions for the public. Visitors will experience the fascination of this splendid technology at first hand, the dimensions of a vision which has become reality.

   
 

   
 

The attractions should strengthen the public´s awareness of the need for new means of dealing with our energy sources in order to preserve the environment for future generations.

The Tauernwindpark will open in the spring of 2003.

Most of the special attraction are still in development, but since the middle of June the Tauernwind company offers guided tours through the windpark. Our guides give you all kinds of informations about clean energy in general and about the very special history and present of the Tauernwindpark. The tour takes about an hour.

If you are interested in a guided tour please contact the Tauernwind office: +43 2742 43208 or +43 676 840 120 555

Price: 50€ per group, maximum size of a group: 25 persons.

Meeting point and payment for the tours in the middle of the windpark, near the blue container.

The Windpark can be reached in summer by the newly adapted and improved access road "Höhenstraße". Please note that the Höhenstraße is a paying road (5€/car, 25€/bus).

In winter a ski tow from the skiing area Lachtal/Rossalpe will bring visitors up to within 500 m of the wind park.

In summer as well as in winter you can have adventures, climbing and hiking in the Tauern. A good website offering all these attractions is http://www.tauernwind.at.
