Then turn right into the narrow road until you get back to your departure point.

The southern bank of Lake Kaltern consists of a wide strip of land thick with reeds, and it is protected by the Natura 2000 project. For this reason the marshlands of Lake Kaltern are a rest and nest-building area for many rare bird species and marsh animals. Over 100 bird species have been recorded in scientific surveys.
