Dolomites Lake

In the region known as South Tyrol you’ll find some of the Europe’s most stunning alpine scenery in the UNESCO site of the Dolomites.

It’s been somewhere on our bucket list ever since we moved to Austria, so last week we decided to take a day off to pay a visit to perhaps the most famous of the lakes in the region.

Lago di Braies, also known as Pragser Wildsee (they speak both German and Italian in the region so everything has two names) might be pretty well known, and frequently visited, but we were surprised how few people were there. That may have something to do with the fact that we visited on a Wednesday in May, and not during school holidays though.

The lake is super easy to access and an easy walking path spans the circumference of the lake.

As we took a walk around, we were able to witness the lake in different views. When we arrived it was bright sunlight, and we saw the lake turn from deep blue to light turquoise from the centre outwards. Later in the afternoon the wind died down and the clouds rolled in, treating us to some of the most incredible reflections, they looked more like double-film exposures than real life.
