We went here on our last day and didn't have enough time to do all the walking we wanted. Bring an extra layer. Also, be aware that the bus can be packed and there is a bit of a scrum to get on

Amazingly massive dam which you Can walk across. Breathtaking views of The valley And lake. We only stopped quickly early evening so everything was shut up. Don’t walk across The dam if you’re scared of heights!!

I went by bus in September 2017 - note that if you have Zillertal Pass you need to pay the driver extra because the last part up to the dam is a toll road. Lovely walk around the lake and I recommend the Zamsereck Gasthof...More

Very nice dam close to Glacier. The road from Mayerhofen leads thru nice valey and tunnels at the end of the road are magnificent. There are lots of things to do. Hiking, climbing the dam's wall, go to inside of the dam.

It is worth it to drive some up some narrow one way tunnels to enjoy some stunning views of a huge dam and lake behind that is surround by majestic peaks.
