    Simply a beautiful lake to walk, swim, chill out and enjoy. The paths are not always suitable for prams.
    Starting point for hikes in the mountains.
    Addendum 2021: in August the lake is completely overcrowded because of the national holidays in Italy! The parking lots are overcrowded and the circular route becomes a pedestrian highway.

    The Tenno is a small but tranquil lake.
    Unfortunately, the guests obviously leave their "dirt" here.
    The lake captivates with its turquoise coloring.

    Incredibly beautiful mountain lake, where you can swim wonderful. This turquoise blue color gets the lake, because it is quite calcareous. He has a depth of 47 meters.

    To call the Lake Tennessee a little brother of Lake Garda would be completely wrong, the two of them can not be more different.
    Lake Tenno is so small and idyllic in the mountain landscape, you immediately fell in love with the turquoise water. Since I know the lake only for low season, of course I can not say how much excitement prevails at peak time.

    The Lake Tenno (Italian Lago di Tenno) is a mountain lake in the territory of the municipality Tenno in Trentino, Italy in a closed basin north of Lake Garda.
    It lies at an altitude of 570 meters above sea level, nestled in an almost untouched natural landscape at the foot of Monte Misone. Noteworthy is its special, turquoise to sky blue color, which is why it is also called Lago Azzurro. The lake has a size of about 0.25 kmÂČ, which varies depending on the amount of precipitation. In autumn, heavy rains can raise the lake by 15 meters, causing the small island at the southeastern corner to be completely covered with water. This island emerged from the lake for the first time in 1986, forming a peninsula when the drought persists, when the bay behind it dries up.

    Der Tennosee (italienisch Lago di Tenno) ist ein Bergsee auf dem Gebiet der Gemeinde Tenno im Trentino, 
    Italien in einem abgeschlossenen Becken nördlich des Gardasee.
    Er liegt auf einer Höhe von 570 Metern ĂŒber dem Meeresspiegel, eingebettet in eine nahezu unberĂŒhrte Naturlandschaft am Fuße des Monte Misone. Bemerkenswert ist seine besondere, ins TĂŒrkis bis Himmelblau gehende Farbe, weswegen er auch Lago Azzurro genannt wird. Der See hat eine GrĂ¶ĂŸe von etwa 0,25 kmÂČ, was aber je nach Niederschlagsmenge variiert. Im Herbst können starke RegenfĂ€lle den See um 15 Meter ansteigen lassen, was dazu fĂŒhrt, dass die am sĂŒdöstlichen Eck liegende kleine Insel komplett mit Wasser bedeckt wird. Diese erst 1986 zum ersten Mal aus dem See aufgetauchte Insel bildet bei langanhaltender Trockenheit eine Halbinsel, wenn die dahinter liegende Bucht austrocknet.
    Den Zufluss bildet der Rio Secco, wĂ€hrend der See keinen direkten Abfluss besitzt, sondern durch Sickerwasser etwa 30 Höhenmeter unter dem See den Rio Magnone speist. In einer Studie wurde der Lago di Tenno als sauberster SĂŒĂŸwassersee Italiens ermittelt.
    Das Ufer ist nicht mit dem Auto zu erreichen, sondern nur zu Fuß ĂŒber eine Steintreppe. Der Uferstreifen ist durch mehrere Wege erschlossen, die um den See fĂŒhren. Der See ist umgeben von Wald, das Ufer ist naturbelassen und das Wasser glasklar. Im Sommer ist er ein beliebter Badesee.
    Der See ist durch einen Bergrutsch von der orographisch rechten Talseite entstanden, der den Zufluss aufgestaut hat. Aufgrund am Seegrund entdeckter BaumstĂ€mme eines ehemaligen und nun mit Wasser bedeckten Waldes konnte mittels Radiokarbonmethodefestgelegt werden, dass der See zu Beginn des 12. Jahrhunderts entstanden sein muss. Aus dieser Zeit stammen noch andere durch Bergrutsche aufgestaute Seen im Trentino (Cei, Canzolino, Levico, Tovel), was den Schluss einer erhöhten seismischen AktivitĂ€t zu dieser Zeit zulĂ€sst, die zu einer vermehrten Anzahl von BergstĂŒrzen gefĂŒhrt hat.
    Im Tennosee sind folgende Fischarten anzutreffen: Aal, Alburnus arborella (eine Art aus der Gattung Alburnus), Bachforelle, Döbel, Flussbarsch, Regenbogenforelle und Rotfeder.

    In the hinterland of Riva, the Tenno Lake (Lago di Tenno) appears at an altitude of 570 meters amid dense coniferous forest - a small, almost circular mountain lake with emerald green water and grassy banks. It can be easily circled on foot in an hour and is a popular bathing lake with its clean water.About a third of the lake shore is designated as a bathing area and lined with large lawns. A small island in the lake is within easy reach. When the water level is low, you can even get to the island with dry feet. There is a small kiosk and toilets on site.Dogs are not allowed on Lake Tenno from June 1st to September 30th. But there is a dedicated dog beach on the west bank with access near the parking lot.In the few villages in the Tenno Valley, the contrast between the alpine mountain landscape and Mediterranean vegetation that is so characteristic of Garda Trentino is impressively clear. Olive groves shape the image of the more southern places, while the landscape in the higher districts such as Canale or Cavalo is already very alpine.gardasee.de/tennosee

    If you want to go swimming, you should definitely wear flip flops or bathing sandals. The shore is littered with sharp stones throughout.

    Fantastically situated lake.

    So don't forget your flip-flops and a towel.

    The Lago di Tenno has a great location further above Lake Garda. In summer and it is a very nice bathing destination. But it can also be circled and explored on foot. Here it is recommended to include the neighboring village of Canale and to get a beautiful view of Lake Garda.
