Who is Viktor Kaplan actually?


Prof. Dr. techn. Viktor Kaplan is the inventor of the water turbine named after him, which is used worldwide on rivers and streams to generate electricity. 

He acquired the Rochuspoint estate, idyllically situated above Lake Attersee, in 1920. Kaplan died there in August 1934 and was buried in a newly built mausoleum at Rochuspoint.

To the Viktor Kaplan Monument


In Unterach am Attersee, a pavilion and a memorial in the form of a fountain in the recreational area as well as the "Kaplan-Themenweg" commemorate the famous inventor and honorary citizen of the community. 
In the pavilion, twelve display boards vividly describe Viktor Kaplan's life and inventions. 

On the hike along the well-signposted Viktor Kaplan Theme Trail, which begins at the main square and leads via Kohlstatt in the direction of Mondsee, one first reaches the Rochuspoint property and then the mausoleum. At eleven stations along the way, interesting display boards provide information about Kaplan's life at Rochuspoint and other topics
