Lake Favogna

The area of Favogna boasts a similar flora and fauna as Lake Garda, due to the warm air current coming from south

Lake Favogna - "Fennberger See" in German, "Lago di Favogna" in Italian - is located at 1,034 m a.s.l. in a low ground at the beginning of the Favogna high plateau. The locality of Favogna belongs to the municipality of Magrè in the south of South Tyrol. The lake is not only a popular hiking destination, but also a biotope with permission for bathing in summertime. Since 1977 Lake Favogna has been under natural protection due to its richness and diverstiy in flora and fauna.

At the lakeside there is a large number of plants that have adapted to this rather moist habitat. More than 35 types of orchids, the narrow-leaved cotton grass, the Ragged-Robin, the crayfish and other rare and threatened animal and plant species have their habitat in the biotope round Lake Favogna, a protected area of about 10 hectares. The only 4 metres deep lake invites in summer to have a refreshing bath, whereas the lawn at the lakeside offers some shadow under the trees. Reeds and wet meadows, the romantic Saint Leonhard Church located on a nearby hill as well as the striking, 1,873 m high Cima Roccapiana peak convey a particular atmosphere to this oasis.
