Covering around 7,000 square metres and measuring up to five metres in depth, the swimming lake in See is a great place to cool off on a hot summer’s day.
When it comes to the Badesee See, the clue really is in the name. The name “See” means “lake” in German, so any municipality called See is more likely than not be home to a body of water. See in the Paznauntal Valley certainly doesn’t disappoint and offers visitors a pretty swimming lake with a play area, sports facilities and a water park. Work in recent years to restore the lake’s natural reed beds have also contributed to its excellent water quality.
Many centuries ago there was a natural lake on the same spot where the Badesee See stands today. However, it was destroyed by a rockslide in the early 15th century. The modern lake offers all the creature comforts you would expect, including sunbathing lawns, a changing area and many fun activities such as tennis and football. There is a small café serving drinks and snacks. In the lake itself there is a slide for children (and big kids who are young at heart), while toddlers can splash around in the small stream nearby. The lake also has a separate children’s area and fishing pond.
Holders of the “Silvretta Card All Inclusive” have free access to the Badesee See.
