A vacation by the lake in South Tyrol

Between mountains and bathing lakes

While not located directly at a lake, the Sparerhof is situated in perfect travel distance from the most beautiful lakes in South Tyrol. The perfect ingredients for a lake vacation are lots of sunshine, cool water and a picturesque landscape. And fortunately there is plenty of that here in South Tyrol.

Situated right between Bozen and Meran, it’s just a 22-minute drive to the Montiggl lakes and 25 minutes to Lake Kaltern, both of which are popular destinations from spring to late fall. The latter is South Tyrol's largest swimming lake and the warmest swimming lake in the whole Alpine region. In winter, the lakes freeze over and are then, provided the ice is thick enough, converted into ice skating rinks. In South Tyrol, vacationing by a lake offers something for everyone, but especially water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers.

The lakes from the postcards
South Tyrol's flagship lake, the Pragser Wildsee, is a bit further away. A trip there is still a good idea. Except in August, when it is somewhat overcrowded. A better choice might be the Fenner lake or the Wolfsgrubener lake, if you prefer it less busy.
Upon your return
If exploring made you hungry or thirsty, a visit to the bar or restaurant is in order.
