The Lake Antholz, a turquoise-green jewel of nature

Dark green coniferous forests, the breathtaking mountain scenery of the Rieserferner mountain chain and, in the midst of all this, shimmering turquoise-green water. This is the dreamlike scenery of the lake called Antholzer See, one of the most beautiful lakes in the Alps! And with 44 hectares and a depth of 38 m, this idyllic pearl of our Blue Valley is the third largest mountain lake in South Tyrol. Located at the head of the valley, it is also very close to the well-known Staller Saddle mountain pass and Austria. At an altitude of approx. 1,640 m, families, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy countless activities in the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park all year round.

 

 

→ Good to know: the only and last parking possibility at the Lake Antholz is at the Biathlon Center. The street leads further up to the Staller Saddle - border crossing to Austria. We recommend a comfortable & sustainable journey by public transportation.

Our tips, your experiences

Are you up for more? We have some great tips for your activities and experiences all around the Lake Antholz! Walk along the lake's Nature Trail to learn more about its flora and fauna. You may also set out on adventurous tours to admire the lake from above: Imagine a pleasant hike along alpine pastures, a mountaineering tour on one of the surrounding 38 three-thousanders or a mountain bike tour to the Staller Saddle mountain pass. However, the lake is not only a highlight in summer, for as soon as its water freezes in winter, it entices you to practise cross country skiing, to go on winter hikes and to enjoy other winter activities in its snowy fairytale landscape.
