This lake is so amazing just like Lake Louise in Canada. I recommend taking a boat on the lake although it is a bit pricey. I visited there in the afternoon and the scene is amazing at dusk. But make sure to bring warm clothes. It is a bit cold in the evening.

Arrival:
I recommend to arrive before 9am during the week and even at 8 or 7 on beautiful weekend days. The parking lot gets packed very quickly and the way up might get closed if its too busy. The car park's price is 10€ at the lake.
First impressions were like "This is like Lake Louise in Canada", but a bit more scenic in my opinion.
After leaving at 2pm, I was astounded by the long car jam towards the lake's parking lot.

The lake area:
Like at Lake Louise, there is a beautiful Hotel in front of the lake, which has an interesting story from WW2.
The hiking path circling the lake was pretty busy but very scenic and its really worth to do the hike (easy hike). On the other side of the lake, there is a beach where you can relax. You'll find some picnic tables around the lake. Near the hotel there is also a hotel/bar where you can sit inside/outside.
There are also numerous (free) public toilets, near the hotel, the parking lot and at the other side of the lake.
I recommend renting a rowing boat and enjoy the lake. Its 29€, you get 10€ back if you're only 30min on your boat. But I got my 10 back even though I was 45min on mine. Also rent the boat early.
If you are there for pictures, note, already early a lot of people are at the lake for the sunrise. Also the morning and late moring sun makes the lake the most scenic. The boathouse together with the lake in the early morning sun are a famous picture.

We visited (us plus a 2years child) as one of most popular tourist place to visiting in Trentino, for spending a family afternoon among the nature.
In any season we reccomand to book the access and parking by dedicate website, we chosen the P1 parking at 15€ cost for the entire day, P1 parking is 800mt far form main entry but near to pedastian path to reach it.
Path around the lake is easy to anyone and does not require a special equipment, we did with a "tracking" baby stroller since the way is not asphalted; however there is a part of path not so easy with baby stroller which need to pay attention since housed in the side of the mountain.
For all the rest place is fantastic and very recommend for pick nik and delicious day.

One and only mountain lake of this kind. In high season it's reachable only by dedicated buses (442) that need to be booked online in advance.

I’ve seen this site many times on Instagram and wanted to experience it for myself. Although the lake and the surrounding area is as beautiful as I had imagined it was very crowded already even though we got there early. If you are interested in visiting this lake I would recommend you book a parking spot before hand. There are quite a few websites which offer this service (parking is about 20€ for 24h) or you can take one of the shuttles. We booked a spot right in front of the lake’s hotel. This also guarantees that we were allowed to drive to the lake as the road will be closed from 10 am to 3 pm during the month of August. We got there at 10 but I would recommend getting there by maybe 8 if you really want to enjoy the views of the lake without the masses. By the time we left at 11:30 the parking lots were packed with more people coming in and long traffic jams on the road leading to the lake. Through the experience was nice if you are more of the individualist who likes piece and quiet this might not be for you. The only time I would got there again would perhaps be off season.

A nice place to visit. Nice lake surrounded by green mountains. The tiny borghi at the lakeside make the place more fascinating.

Great place to visit and to hike. The place is incredible. The only downside is that it has become an influencer hotspot. You need to be there at 8 am because the road closes at 9:30 am and at 9 am it is a huge traffic jam and really crowed

Majestic! A must-see!

A landscape out of a fairytale! Such a beauty!

We were there early in the morning (08:30) and we didn't have difficulty park at the parking (100m from the lake). We did the round of the lake (about an hour) which was easy and fun!

When we were leaving (11:00) the parking was already full... So go early!

If you are at the Dolomites, Lago di Braies is a must-see!

Unsure about the review as nature is amazing, the sights, the surroundings... But....
It's too crowded (and the summer season hasn't started yet...), parking is too small and too expensive (€6 for just 1hour).
The only bar/facility has no toilets. Boat renting is €30/half hour... And people line up forever right at the beginning of the path.
I'd suggest a visit off season only
