The marsh lake and bathing lake of Issengo is a natural treasure at the Val Pusteria Sun Road.
"More than water!" this is the motto of the Issengo Pond. The popular natural bathing pond is located in the eponymous village in the municipality of Falzes. It is one of the few natural lakes of the Val Pusteria valley and also one of the last pond biotopes of South Tyrol. The protected biotope offers a very speciose flora and fauna with dragonflies, frogs and co. In summer, the lake and the neighbouring Kronaction Outdoor & Fun Park attract locals and guests equally. In winter, however, the Issengo Pond turns into a natural ice-skating rink.
A playground for kids, a water slide, a water fountain, a lawn for sunbathing and a restaurant with bar can be found at the pond. The Issengo Pond - "Issinger Weiher" in German, "Laghetto d'Issengo" in Italian - is opened from mid-June to the end of August. New in 2021 are the bicycle parking and the charging station for e-bikes. Also easy walks proceed to the pond, like from Falzes via Irenberg along the path no. 6B. Another tour starts proceeds from Issengo to Hasenried with view on Schöneck Castle, further to the columnar spruce and via Molini to the Issengo Pond.
