Romantic gourmet hotel by the lake in South Tyrol’s Caldaro/Kaltern

Our hotel by the lake in South Tyrol is only 5 km away from the picturesque Lake Caldaro/Kaltern. Also, the Monticolo/Montiggler lakes – the large and small one – are not far away and are always worth a visit, especially during the warmer seasons.

Romantic holiday by the lake in South Tyrol’s south

As the warmest bathing lake in the Alps, Lake Caldaro/Kaltern is one of the most popular destinations in South Tyrol. Here, you can swim, windsurf, sail, pedal, or row a boat or simply lounge and relax in the sun. Whether in spring, summer, or autumn – not far from our hotel by the lake, in Lake Caldaro/Kaltern, South Tyrol’s largest bathing lake, you can swim from mid-May to early October. Due to the shallow depth of the lake, the water already reaches a temperature of 17° C to 19° C in the second half of May and 26° C to 28° C in summer.

Tip: On the southern shore of Lake Caldaro/Kaltern lies a reed area, a Natura 2000 nature reserve. This biotope is a nesting place for a number of rare birds as well as swamp animals. Scientists have found over 100 different bird species here. This reed area on Lake Caldaro/Kaltern is the only larger habitat of this species between Passo di Resia/Reschenpass and Verona and is located along one of the most important migratory routes.

Monticolo/Montiggler lakes: near your hotel by the lake in South Tyrol

The Monticolo/Montiggler lakes belong to the most picturesque places around Caldaro/Kaltern and are not far away from our romantic hotel by the lake in South Tyrol. Nestled in fragrant pine forests, the lakes attract visitors all year round. We recommend a leisurely walk around the lake in the colourful autumn forest, a bathing day in summer, or a rowing boat trip in spring. In 2018, the Monticolo/Montiggler lakes were once again awarded the five sails (Cinque Vele) of Legambiente, making them one of the cleanest bathing lakes in Italy.

Tip: At the large lake of Monticolo/Montiggler, there is an adventure pool with the longest water slide in South Tyrol. Ideal for combining outdoor fun with swimming pleasure. At the somewhat more secluded small lake of Monticolo/Montiggler, idyllically nestled in the forest, guests of our hotel by the lake in South Tyrol will find a little more peace and quiet for tome together.
