Pond of Fiè
Surrounded by lush green firs and an impressive mountain scenery, the little pond in the locality of Fiè provides refreshing experiences on hot summer days.
Despite of the fact that it is not really large, it is really popular: the little pond of Fiè has been established in the 16th century by Leonhard von Völs-Colonna as a fish pond. Today, however, fishing is prohibited, but bathing is allowed… and a jump into the waters of the pond located at 1.036 m asl is a real pleasure on hot summer days or after an exhausting mountain tour. Part of the pond of Fiè is protected as biotope and gives shelter to a large number of animals. The pond of Fiè is about 3.5 metres deep and is easily reachable by car or bus. Coming from Bolzano, proceed towards Siusi and about 2 km after Fiè turn right onto the street that leads you to the pond, located above the village.
However, not only the pond itself is worth to be visited, but this is also where a vast number of of mountain tours and hikes start, e.g. on the Sciliar massif. In winter, however, the pond is frozen and open for ice skating and curling. Moreover it is one of the only lakes on whose surface the snow is cleared in order to make ice skating a real pleasure.
