The Monticolo Lakes
Idyllic towns around Caldaro
The Monticolo Lakes are said to be the most picturesque places around Caldaro. Embedded in fragrant pine forests, a visit is rewarding all year round. Peaceful walks around the lake in the colorful autumn forest, a summer swim or a ride in a rowboat in spring are all recommended.
In 2012 the Monticolo Lakes were awarded the Five Sails (Cinque Vele) by Legambiente and therefore are considered the cleanest swimming lakes in Italy.
On Great Monticolo Lake you can find the longest water slide in South Tyrol as well as an adventure pool, making it an ideal spot for combining natural experience with swimming fun. On Small Monticolo Lake, which is more secluded and lies in an idyllic setting in the forest, you will find more peace and space for quiet hours in the sun.
