To Pragser Wildsee Lake

Lago di Braies (Pragser Wildsee) Lake is situated in the middle of Fanes-Senes-Braies (Fannes-Sennes-Prague) Nature Park. Nestled into a wild and romantic rocky valley basin and dominated by the majestic Croda del Becco (Seekofel) Peak, this is the most beautiful lake in the Dolomites. An easy trail encircles the lake; the loop takes about 90 minutes to walk. On the right side, this circuit trail passes a small chapel in the muted shade of spruce, larch and pine trees. The eastern part of the trail goes over steps. Croda del Becco Peak is beautifully reflected in the lake. Lago di Braies is known as the Pearl of the Dolomite Lakes.

Attention: From 11/09/2020 the traffic regulations are no longer in place, the Pragser Wildsee Lake can be visited at any time
