Lake Molveno is a pearl in the Dolomites. But this year it was empty !! We have learned from the locales that in every 20-30 year the lake has to be dryed in order to clean the bottom of it, to help the working of a very special hydro-electrical plant in the lake. In this season they started to empty... More

Second time in 4 years we've been here and we were quite shocked by the lack of water in the lake. Last time we came in 2013 ( also in February), the lake looked very full and very beautiful to the eye with its unusual colour. This time however, we walked from the car park, over the bridge and could... More

Every ten years, the lake is half emptied for maintenance work. So when we showed up the water levels were low. Which means you can walk along the lake bed. It's an incredible sight...it feels like you're walking on the moon!

I don't know if I want to tell you the truth. This place is a secret gem and I would like it stayed that way. Crystal blue lake with the back drop of the Brent's Dolomites. Activities galore. Swimming, boating, paddle boarding, paragliding, mini golf, tennis, biking, hiking, sunbathing ... did I mentioned everything.. big playground for kids! Great restaurants... More

Do not miss a trip up the mountainside in/on the gondola/ski lift - with a Molveno discount card just 12 euros pp and value at twice that amount - the views of the higher dolomiti can only be labelled "fantastico"

Suggested place for family holidays, you'll find attraction for kids (a nice park just on the lakeside), but also nice place for hiking (even with stroller).

Travelled here from Garda for a day out. We were not disappointed. The lake was a beautiful green emerald colour. It was freezing but we hired a pedalo and from the lake the view of the mountains was stunning. The town of molveno is def worth a visit also with bars shops and cafes.

Molveno is a small and peaceful place. The small village is nice and quiet with a beautiful view of the lake. The lake shore has a number of activities - swimming pool, mini golf, bike rent, paddle boat, etc.

We stopped by after a hot descent from the Dolomites; lovely refreshing swim and good ice cream and pizza from the little cafe at the car park. The beach area is attractive with grass and pebbles. There looked like a good crazy golf but we didn't have time to try it. Very popular with families. Stand up paddle boarding seemed... More
