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 Outdoor & Fun Park Kronaction attract locals and guests equally. A playground for kids, a water slide, beach blobbing, a water fountain, a lawn for sunbathing and a restaurant with pizzeria as well as a beach bar can be found at the pond. The Issengo Pond - “Issinger Weiher” in German, “Laghetto d’Issengo” in Italian - is opened from the beginning of June until mid-September.
Also easy walking tours proceed to the Issengo Pond, like from Falzes via Irenberg along the path no. 6B. Another tour starts in Issengo and proceeds to the hamlet of Hasenried with view on Schöneck Castle, further to the well-known columnar spruce and then via Molini to the pond.
