Kölnbrein Reservoir and dam wall with the Airwalk in the Maltatal
Via the Malta Hochalmstraße to the Kölnbrein Dam

You arrive at the Kölnbrein Dam wall and Kölnbrein Reservoir via the winding, 14.4 km Malta Hochalmstraße. Find out interesting information within the Kölnbrein Dam about the environmentally friendly power generation from water during a guided tour of the dam wall or enjoy the breathtaking views on the “Airwalk” by the Kölnbrein Dam.

Discover the varied and high Alpine landscape around the Kölnbrein Reservoir. The large network of hikes around the Kölnbrein Dam has the right tour for every hiker and climber. Take an easy, half-day hike along the Kölnbrein Reservoir, go much higher on a full day tour to a three-thousand-metre-peak or take a challenging tour to the Hochalmspitze. In the meantime, do not forget to stop for a break, to admire the breathtaking flora and fauna.

Take a look at the VERBUND-Energiewelt Malta and breathe in the fresh, clear mountain air by the Stausee Malta Reservoir or enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the sun terrace of Berghotel Malta.

Outstanding views of the peaks

The “Airwalk“ impresses with its breathtaking views of the wonderful landscape. The really brave dare to walk on the glass surface and admire the 200 metre long uninterrupted view of the incredible panorama. On the “Airwalk”, experience the architecture of the Kölnbrein Dam wall in all its facets whilst the massive concrete structure is laid out before you and the wall arches upwards above your head.
