Better go anywhere else in the alps to go hiking or come by bus. Parking is 3eur per hour for a small car and 10eur per hour for a van...totally hated the feeling of overpaying for parking in the middle of nowhere. The crowds were already annoying in April (off season), it must get really crammed in summer. I cannot... More

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.

Lago di Braies was the starting point of our 9-day Alta Via 1 trek. On that day in mid-July, there was a fishing competition on the far right side of the lake, so there were quite a few vehicles in the parking lot, but people were dispersed around the lake so it never felt crowded. The lake itself is a... More

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 hour!
