Lakes & nature

Lake Kaltern

Kaltern on the Wine Road

 

The Lake Kaltern is located on the Wine Road, around 9 kilometres south of St. Michael | Eppan. It is situated 216 meters above sea level and gives its name to the wine made from the Vernatsch-grapes, which are grown in the nearby surroundings.

 

Topography
The lake Kaltern is 1.8 kilometres long and almost 1 kilometre wide, which equates a surface of 155 hectares. It is filled in a shallow basin and therefore it is only 5.6 meters deep and that is the reason why South Tyrol biggest natural swimming lake gets heated up very quickly.

Utilization:

In the south of the lake a reed bed area is situated, which shows a multifaceted offer of seldom birds and sweep animals and is as well a nature reserve.
The other part of Lake Kaltern is more developed for tourism and especially on the east and west shore you find swimming areas, restaurants, hotels, car parks as well as two campsites near the lake.

You can enjoy a wide sport program for windsurfing, kite surfing, stand up paddling and sailing. Furthermore, you can rent rowing or pedal boats. Motorboats are forbidden. To run, hike or with the bike you can use the signposted walking path around Lake Kaltern.
