Reschensee or Lake Reschen, is an artificial lake located in the western portion of South Tyrol, Italy, near the Reschen Pass, approximately (1 mi) from the Austrian border.

14th-century church steeple submerged in Lake Reschen is the only visible remnant of Graun, a town that vanished underwater more than 60 years ago. When the water freezes, it can be reached on foot.
