Monticolo Lakes

The Monticolo Lakes are embedded in a vast mixed forest and pinewood, in an area characterised by its mild climate.

The two Monticolo Lakes, the small one and the large one, together with the Monticolo forest, form a biotope and recreation area in a particularly favorable climate zone. Not far from the Large Monticolo Lake, there is a branch that takes you to the idyllic locality of Monticolo on the South Tyrolean Wine Route. In southern direction there is the so-called Spring Valley that leads to the basin of Lake Caldaro.

Most of the Large Monticolo Lake is situated in the forested basin of the Monte di Mezzo and is approx. 700 m long and 200 to 300 m wide, with a shore line of 2.02 km. The Small Monticolo Lake, however, lies in a smaller hollow northeast of the larger lake and is semi-circular in shape, with a diameter of 300 m and a shore line of 0.89 km.

Both of the lakes are very popular in summer months for all those who love swimming and relaxing. At the west end of the Large Monticolo Lake, there is the Monticolo Lido, a large public bath which features a hotel, a restaurant, a heated swimming pool at the lakeside and much more. This is the perfect place for those who love sunbathing and swimming. On the vast lawn you can relax while your children enjoy the longest water slide in South Tyrol. In winter, the lakes usually freeze so that you can skate on the ice.
