Shamael: In some way, only picture 1 and 3 are of any tourist interest or value and reveal some of Luxemburg's beauty of the landscape. Number 2 is the basin of the tideal electricity system, fills up during day by pump up and flows down during night to produce electricity, powered by the river Our in the valley to pump up the water.

The other way round, the Bassin supérieur on top of Mont Saint-Nicolas is being filled up during nighttime and then the water flows down on the turbines in daytime when power is needed.

very insensitive choice of a title, really should be changed! I could imagine here in Germany the Central Council of the Jews would get you in trouble for this.
