The warmest bathing lake on the southern side of the Alps - the water temperature of Lake Kaltern
Due to its shallow waters, Lake Kaltern is considerably warmer than the other bathing lakes in the surrounding regions. As it’s only four metres deep, it’s easier for the sun to warm the lake already during spring when compared to the deeper, neighbouring lakes. Indeed, Lake Kaltern can reach temperatures of 19°C during this period! During the peak of summer, highs of 28°C can be reached in the lake. The lake is the ideal playground for surfers from April to October thanks to the ‘Ora’, a southerly-blowing wind that visits the area during the afternoon.
