About me
Hi, my name is Sabine and I’ve been working as a Marketing and Social Media Manager at Südtirol Privat for some four years now. If my colleagues were to describe me, they’d probably tell you that I’m an open-minded, cheerful and adventurous girl – and an absolute fan of South Tyrol! And YES, I am! I love being out and about, zooming down the pistes or roaming through the great outdoors, and the camera is my most faithful companion. Sharing my best experiences and most wonderful impressions with you is something I truly enjoy: read all about my adventures in South Tyrol in the "Sabine on tour" section! What I like most about our lovely little country? The fantastic sunrises and sunsets in the mountains, of course. What about you? Come along and join me on my tour through the beautiful landscapes of South Tyrol!
Sabine’s series of lake portraits continues! Hiking, biking, exploring amidst the Rieserferner Ahrn Nature Park: learn all about the (secretive) Lake Antholz in the Puster Valley here!

Lake Antholz

Lake Antholz nestles among forests and meadows, surrounded by the magnificent mountains of the Puster Valley. One of the most popular places in the Kronplatz holiday region, it is today the star of my lake portrait! :-)


The origins of a magical place
Mystical stories also surround Lake Antholz. The dark legend of its origins reminds me of the story of Lake Kaltern: a beggar, refused help by the locals, prophesied that springs would devastate their homes. And so it came to pass: the waters dammed up to create today’s Lake Antholz.
The reality was, naturally, rather less dramatic: a landslide blocked the Antholz stream. The lake is magical nonetheless!


The mere thought!

Lake Antholz, South Tyrol’s third largest, lies at the end of the Antholz Valley at 1,642 metres above sea level. Measuring 38 metres at its deepest, it is located in the Rieserferner Ahrn Nature Park. A circular trail (also suitable for prams) runs round it, with information panels describing the local flora, fauna and geology. Several places on the shore offer refreshments – or how about a lakeside picnic? But don’t go for a swim, even in summer... unless you like very cold temperatures! ;-) In winter, however, it is not only ideal for ice skating, but the trail around the lake is also perfect for cross-country skiing!

Lake Antholz is a wonderful place to relax, savour nature – or just be.

Yours from the heart, Sabine
