Very interesting and cool. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Wish you could stay down there a bit longer though.
One of the best place to take break while u drive for long. So great atmosphere.
Excellect tour, well worth the visit. Tours have to be booked in advance unfortunately, but easily done online the night before. Would have liked to have got closer to the action at times, and see some whirling turbines up close. When we visited it was during a maintenance period, and what we saw was in a state of repair, but still interesting never the less. Thoroughly enjoyed by all the family, Jan the tour guide was superb !
The introductory video and the tour guide gave an easily understandable explanation of the history and workings of the power station, while still giving detailed info to the scientifically minded. Would have liked to see more parts of the facility but the areas shown were still impressive. A major thing to note is that no electronic devices are allowed on the tour, including cameras and phones.
Amazing scenery well worth a visit
