Lake Dobbiaco is at the top of Italy near the Austrian border (close to Innsbruck). We visited Lake Dobbiaco on a day trip in October 2008. It is a small lake but very pretty with a V shaped mnountain range in the background. It was hazy on the day we were there but the mirror image in the lake was still noticeable. There was one cafe/restaurant open and another closed nearby. There also seemed to be some accommodation available but it was also closed. We had lunch there and it was fine – pizzas ands salads etc. It was not very busy when we were there but looked to be a great place to visit when the weather was nicer and warmer. The closed restaurant had paddle boats locked away underneath it so I guess those come out in summer. The lake was very clear but too cold for swimming. There were lots of signs around about fishing. You could walk around the lake in about 20-30 minutes by the looks of it – we did part of it and it was a pretty walk. The town of Dobbiaco itself seemed pretty small and did not seem to have too much to do, but to be fair we were there in the off season.
