The heart of the mountain

Speicherteich: Herz am Berg

The reservoir


at the Penkenjoch plateau was created in 2013. It is 11 meters deep and has a capacity of more than 70,000 cubic meters of water. 

In winter it feeds the snow cannons on the slopes, in summer it not only offers peace and quiet but also a stunning view. 

The chapel’s construction was sheer coincidence. The first aerial photos taken during a tandem paragliding flight revealed that the reservoir was heart shaped.
