Fish bypass at Greifenstein power plant

The Greifenstein power plant gets a near-natural bypass stream as a fish bypass. A difference in height of up to 14 metres has to be overcome. Over a distance of more than 4 kilometres, the fish find a new habitat and a convenient way to swim around the power plant.
