The Grande Dixence dam : the highest dam of its type in the world!

Visit the dam wall and take a walk along the lakeside!

The Grande Dixence, the highest dam of its type in the world , collects and stocks water from the surrounding glaciers for the production of hydroelectricity. Water-filled for the first time in 1957, this construction holds a number of records. The height of its wall, 285 metres, is unbeaten to this day. Its weight, 15 million tons, makes it heavier than the great pyramid of Kheops.

The site and buildings of the complex of the Grande Dixence are open to the public and the walk along the lake is magnificent !
