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.
