Bit of a shame. No sorry, unfortunately. Though just pay for a sandwich, €9 and €2.60 for a bottle of soda. Best pricey for what you get. And that entourage is also a little linger in the years 90, including dust on all cabinets and shelves. Step 2: the tour. 1 hour and 15 min for €7.50 pp. Interesting story of the guide in French and NL. Though fairly large group so the guide was in the back sometimes does not understand. Via ' corridors ' of visitors center to run reservoir, underground. After engine room tour (had hoped really there on the spot, but was behind glass), to 100 m height and vantage point on via walkway back to visitor center. If you're in the area certainly nice to snag. For the children also with bus/boat combinations and laser tag.
Très beau site avec beaucoup d'activités et de magnifiques coins pique nique autour du lac. Seul gros point négatif : pas de poubelles ! more »Very nice site with lots of activities and beautiful corners Spades picnic around the Lake. Only big negative: not trash!
Hou je van wandelen dan is het ook hier leuk. Het complex heeft nood aan geld. Gebouw mag mijns inziens gerenoveerd worden. Interieur jaren 80.

Attractions I have not done because this my not immediately claims. You can also eat in (back) the girls of the cafeteria, though not expensive and ok food.
