House of Water
Learning – researching – networking

In the House of Water in the Defereggen valley, East Tyrol, everything revolves around the importance of water to humans and the environment.

 



  • Water tells many stories. Water is exciting. It is the basis of our life. In the national park municipality of St. Jakob, children, young people and adults can improve their knowledge of water through play. The knowledge centre for water at 1,440 m above sea level offers school groups three-to-five-day project courses tailored to the respective age groups.

    Seminars at the National Park Academy, programmes for teachers, as well as summer camps held in collaboration with the Austrian Alpine Club expand the range of activities. In summer, the House of Water also organises half-day events for children and adults. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of water!
