Pumped-storage hydroelectric plant: electricity for Europe
The gigantic pumped-storage hydroelectric plant in Vianden is one of the biggest in Europe. Visitors can tour the impressive complex free of charge, including the visitor tunnels and underground caverns. Models and films explain how the power plant works and how energy is generated and consumed in Europe. Not far off is Mont St. Nicolas, from where you get an excellent view of the reservoir and the whole surrounding area. You only have to climb about 100 steps to get there!
