On the old mule track from the Grimsel Pass to Handegg you walk through history - and the world of the Kraftwerke Oberhasli power company. Here they not only produce electricity but also memorable moments – many facilities are accessible, from the dam above the access tunnel to the works railway.
The use of hydroelectric power in the Grimsel and Susten area commenced in 1925 with the founding of the Kraftwerke Oberhasli AG (Oberhasli AG power plants). In several stages, an impressive facility came into being that comprises eight dams and nine power plants, generating electricity for 1.2 million people.
Creating electricity from water is wonderful technology: hidden in the mountains, built for generations and absolutely safe. A pleasure for visitors to experience.
