Excursion tip: Lago di Anterselva/Antholzer See
When you see this lake, you certainly won’t need the sea anymore. The legendary Lago di Anterselva/Antholzer See is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Alps. See for yourself.
A long, long time ago, where Lago di Anterselva/Antholzer See lies today, there were three beautiful farms – one bigger than the other. One day, a beggar passed through this area and asked the rich farmers for a little bit of charity. But the farmers were so stingy that they couldn’t even spare a small piece of bread for him and turned him away. Disappointed, the beggar went away, but before he did so, he prophesied a catastrophe for the farmers, which actually happened a little while later. Suddenly, a spring opened up behind the farms and poured right over them!
This is the story about the origins of Lago di Anterselva/Antholzer See. Visit it on your mountain biking holidays in the Alps or with your family. A circular path, suitable for both prams and bikes, leads you around this unique natural treasure. It is also home to many rare animals and plants. Our tip: Sit on the shore with the little ones and watch the fascinating play of colours on the surface of untouched lake, the third largest lake in South Tyrol.
