Steyr Things to Do: 76 reviews and 163 photos
Steyr was the first town in Europe to get street-lights powered with electricity in Europe and here you may see this first electricity-plant in Steyr (it is not in use any more - but looks even more romantic that way...). Josef Werndl heared about this new kind of power at a world-exhibition and wanted to try it out himself at home.
Directions: This old powerplant is in Wehrgraben, about 800 meters upstream from Museum Arbeitswelt.
