10Lago di Braies

The best time of year to visit Lago di Braies is early in the summer (June) or in the fall (late September – October). As the summer season progresses, the water level decreases.

Lago di Braies is usually the first place people want to see in the Dolomites. In high season, it’s a zoo. Most people just come for the photo. Many will walk the circuit trail around the lake. But, the smartest people visit Lago di Braies at sunrise and hike to the summits of surrounding peaks, like Hochalpenkopf.
