This bThis beautiful lake is more than just a bather’s delight; it is a small Paradise on Deutschnonsberg/in Alta Val di Non. If you prick up your ears, open your eyes and breathe deeply, you will sense that this place is a small paradise. Starting at St. Felix/San Felice or in the hamlet of Tret in Italian-speaking Trentino, we walk gently uphill through sunlit, flowering larch-dotted meadows to the magnificent Felixer Weiher/Lake Tret. Here we can spend some time resting on the lovely banks and even take a refreshing dip in summer.
We can observe dragonflies and butterflies fluttering in the reeds on a walk around the lake, then rebuild our strength in the nearby Waldruhe Inn.
Or we can take a boat trip to the small island and enjoy the undisturbed nature and unique landscape of the Felixer Weiher/Lake Tret, one of the most beautiful forest lakes in South Tyrol.
