It's impressive how beautiful this place can be. It's such an idyllic place. When you have the possibility, go there when the weather isn't so great - less people, very quite and clouds on top of the surrounding mountains make this place even more picturesque.

Gorgeous location. Recommended to visit in the off season as it is overcrowded (3,000 visitors a day). October was very calm, you can hike up until the 3rd week of October and then a bit of snow will set in.

Some of the best hiking in the Dolomites are right there, from gentle tours around the lake to more serious 7-8 hour hikes up to 2500m,

The region is way more that beautiful, but this lake is the pearl of the national park. Both of us where photographers and we came back to photograph the lake several times. It is just priceless...

Beautiful lake and surroundings, but very busy with tourists (september). Good amount of parking space but a shame they built the car park so close to the lake, and a bit of a shock to be charged E12 for parking our van there for one...More

the park there is paid, 5€, and I really did not notice any caravan much less camper in the area. I believe it's not permitted but I'm not sure, as a photographer I visited the lake in almost every hour of the day and... More

Hi, I am thinking about visiting this area in mid to late May. Does anyone know what the weather is like at this time to visit the Lake and mountains? Is it easy to reach the lake if we stay in Bolzano if we rent a car to get there? Is it still too cold or warming up at that time of year? I'm hoping not to have to pack a jacket. Any insight helps. Thanks!

Best is to get off train in Welsberg/Monguelfo, and then take the bus to Lago di Brais. But, be sure that the bus runs all the way to the lake in November, by winter it stops further down the valley.
