The Montiggl Lakes
Montiggl | Eppan
The two Montiggl Lakes are set in dense forest and have a magical attraction for locals and holidaymakers alike at all times of the year, thanks to the tried and tested combination of unspoilt nature and suitably adapted infrastructure.
ENJOY SWIMMING, EXPERIENCE NATURE
The two Montiggl Lakes sparkle like two bright sapphires amidst the dark green forests. A bird’s-eye view provides just a glimpse of the unique leisure area surrounding the two lakes.
While from May to September swimming and sunbathing are the order of the day, in autumn and winter nature takes a break, allowing walkers to enjoy peace and quiet.
The large Montiggl Lake attracts visitors with its public swimming pool "Lido Montiggl", the longest water slide in South Tyrol, a diving tower, a very large sunbathing lawn and all-round catering for young and old.
The small Montiggl Lake, only a few minutes' walk to the north-east, scores with a little more cosiness and tranquillity. Both lakes can be swum across, crossed by boat or circumnavigated on foot or by bike.
As a sensitive ecosystem, the Montiggl area requires special protection to ensure that rare animal and plant species can survive and that the unspoilt natural landscape can also be enjoyed by future generations.
The local authority in Eppan takes this responsibility seriously and has introduced a range of measures for this purpose, including mobility management, a network of footpaths and nature trails and a series of information panels.
It is thus no surprise that the area has for the seventh consecutive time received the “5 Vele” (“5 Sails”) award from the Lega Ambiente and Touring Club Italia organisations – a mark of bathing water quality and of sustainable tourism in Italy.
This tourist “Oscar” takes account not only of the excellent quality of the water in the two Montiggl Lakes but also of tourism factors such as the quality of accommodation, the historic village centres, the offering in terms of gastronomy, scenery and tourism throughout the municipal area and its artistic and historical attractions. It recognises the steps that have been taken to protect the environment and acts as a challenge to maintain this unique habitat.
