  • For the second time on this lake but you never get tired of seeing it being a really lovely place. The beautiful walk just a little steep in some sections, the color of the water, the trees with the red and yellow of autumn that are mirrored ,,,a wonderful day!

  • The lake is wonderful but the magic of the place is ruined by too many people there... The parking lot then near the lake is a disaster. I walked up and got intoxicated by the endless row of cars standing in line ... in an enchanted place like Lake Braies you should not go by car ... the municipality should close the road and make a parking downstream. do you want to see the lake?? You walk and so you taste 100% the atmosphere of the place.
