Lake Braies, also known as Pragser Wildsee or Lago di Braies, is a lake in the Prags Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy. The lake is famous for its scenic view and a popular destination for tourists in the Dolomites.
The lake is surrounded by mountains and not located near a major city. There are some accommodations by the lake and in nearby villages. The major nearby towns connected by highway are Brixen, South Tyrol in the west and Lienz, Austria in the east.
We drove to the lake from the town of Kastelruth, known as the gateway to the Dolomites, through highways and mountains. Below are some pictures from touring the lake. Don’t miss the scenic road trip video at the end of this article!
