A popular photographic motif in Vienna is the Spittelau waste incineration plant, whose façade was redesigned and given its present colorful, irregular structures by eco-architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser following a major fire in 1989. Since then, the former utility building has combined the topics of waste, energy and art in a fascinating way. On a tour of the plant, visitors get an insight into Vienna's waste, recycling and disposal system, as well as the environmentally friendly generation of thermal heat and hot water.
Did you know that Vienna was awarded with the prize "World City closest to sustainable Waste Management" in 2010 for its achievements in the area of sustainable waste management?
The Danube power plant at Freudenau is of interest to everyone who wants to know how electrical energy is produced from hydropower. As one of the most state-of-the-art hydroelectric power plants in the world, it supplies electricity to half of all homes in Vienna. More than 10,000 boats pass through the power plant's locks every year. These locks lift boats 10 meters almost imperceptibly in about 20 minutes. You, too, can experience a ride in the locks on the Grand Danube Canal Tour offered by DDSG - possibly even on board the MS Vindobona, the famous excursion boat designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser!
