Coordinates : 46.694094,12.08546 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Landscapes, people and wildlife (very elusive because of the huge number of tourists)

Recommended equipment : Wide angle and short telephoto, tripod for photographs at sunrise and sunset.

Best months : Throughout the year. In winter the lake is solidly frozen and you can walk on it without danger.

How to get there : To reach the lake, take the exit for the Braies Valley, between the towns of Monguelfo and Villabassa in Alta. After traveling a few kilometers you will find the unique intersection, and take the road towards the lake. After passing the villages of Ferrara (Schmieden) and San Vito (St. Veit), we arrive at parking (fee during the tourist season), where there is a large hotel-restaurant, Hotel Pragser Wildsee linked to the figure of pioneering Emma Hellenstainer.

Visits : It 'freely accessible. You can leave your car in the parking fee (4 Euro). You can make a tour around the lake. This path is on the western side, top and wide, while on the eastern shore is steep and narrow, with a few steps. Nevertheless this beautiful walk that leads to the foot of Seekofel, be faced by any hiker. During the winter these trails often (especially on the east coast) are closed because of avalanche danger. You can still make a trip around the lake, as its surface is very solidly frozen.

Notes : Lake Braies (Pragser Wildsee in German) is a small alpine lake located in Val di Braies (a side valley of the Val Pusteria) to 1,496 m above sea level in the municipality of Braies (BZ), about 97 km from Bolzano. The lake lies at the foot of the cliff Seekofel (German Seekofel, lad. Sass dla Porta m. 2,810) and is located in the natural park Fanes - Senes and Braies. It covers an area of ??about 31 hectares with a length of 1.2 km and a width of 300-400 meters. It is one of the deepest lakes in the province of Bolzano, with more than 36 meters maximum depth and an average depth of 17. The lake is the source landslide, because its creation is due to the damming of the river Braies due to a landslide from Sasso of the Lord. The lake is a very popular tourist destination that attracts for its intense blue color of the clear waters and the natural scenery that surrounds. In fact, the lake is surrounded on three sides by the beautiful peaks of the Dolomites, including Seekofel.
