Description:
Cross the road and walk along the Danube heading east. After 15 minutes youll get to the memorial site erected in honour of those who lost their lives building the powerplant. Until this spot the path is sealed, except for a few metres paved with stones. Now continue along a sandy road along the abandoned Danube River course. On the right is the alluvial forest and on the left the banks of the old river course. After 10 minutes you`ll get to the bridge across the old river course. Now you have the option of climbing up the steps to the road. Climb over the barrier and continue walking along a meadow path, which is very suitable for joggers. After another 10 minutes you`ll get for a pond. After walking for a total of 60 minutes, the alluvial forest becomes sparser. Just before the open-air facility a gravel road branches off to the right. Follow this straight to the parking lot.
