Visit the over 100-year-old Beznau hydropower plant. On this tour you will learn more about the complex technical processes and experience first hand the most environmentally friendly form of electricity generation in large-scale power plants.
The Beznau hydropower plant is a run-of-river power plant. It uses the Aare River gradient over a length of 7.4 kilometres and is located at the end of an artificial headrace canal. The resulting Aare Island is now the site of various Axpo electricity production and distribution facilities.
A guided tour of the Beznau hydroelectric power station is free and takes 1 hour. Guided tours are available for groups of eight or more. They are suitable for people aged 8 and over.
We are happy to tailor our guided tours to your group – please contact us. We will also be happy to advise you on how you can combine your visit to the Beznau hydroelectric power station with a visit to the Axporama.
Due to the current situation, there will be no guided tours of the nuclear power plant and the hydroelectric power plant on Beznau Island or the Würenlingen interim storage facility until further notice, and the Axporama Visitor Center will remain temporarily closed. However, we do accept bookings by telephone for dates starting in May, but you are welcome to book online. We reserve the right to cancel bookings again, depending on how the situation develops.
