Your accommodation near Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee

A wildly romantic lake in the Dolomites

Only 11 kilometres separate your accommodation and Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee in South Tyrol. After a leisurely 15-minute car ride you will reach the so-called Pearl of the Dolomites: the crystal-clear, turquoise to deep-blue Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee. The largest natural lake in the Dolomites is embedded in the impressive Croda del Becco/Seekofel massif. The lake’s waters act like the mountains’ gentle yet mysterious counterpart – creating a unique and magical atmosphere that enchants all visitors of the tranquil Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee. Calm waters are known to run deep and to sometimes be cold as ice. Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee in South Tyrol is no exception. Its deepest point is 36 metres and its water temperature can be described, without exaggeration, as ice-cold – even in high summer. We at Brückele wish you a wonderful break at our accommodation near Lago di Braies/Pragsersee.
