  • Very impressive building. There is a good restaurant near the top level, take a rest and watch the amateur skippers maneuvering their boats.
  • Amazing invention. Fascinating to watch. Exceptionally well maintained. Plenty of outdoor seating. Lovely scenery. Friendly helpful staff. No entrance fee. Currently (June 21)7€ parking. Lots of decent parking spaces. Very nice looking restaurant - we'd taken a picnic. Good tourist office, several languages spoken - (English/German/French naturally!) Postcards and other souvenirs, including some edible ones, available. Would highly recommend a visit.
