Lake Molveno : " a precious pearl in an even more precious casket"
this is how Fogazzaro, at the beginning of the 19th century, described Lake Molveno.
Few other definitions summarize the characteristics of this jewel of the Brenta Dolomites. Twelve kilometers of the perimeter of Lake Molveno are characterized by the presence of dense forests of beech and fir, south-east of the Paganella ridge and north-west of the slopes of the looming peaks of the Brenta Group. In the north-east lies the extensive beach of Lake Molveno, characterized by five acres of lawn.
Lake Molveno is 4.2 km long and 1 km wide and is the largest lake in the Dolomites over the altitude of 800 m.
At Molveno, in all seasons, nature is always the belle of the ball: vast expanses of beech, fir and larch forests colour the landscape with awesome shades of green. Woodland fragrances and perfumes of wild flowers fill the fresh mountain air.
The magic of the lake can be admired in all its greatness and beauty from the beaches and from the village. The expanse of deep blue waters reflects the majestic image of the highest peaks of the Brenta Dolomites: the most western of the Dolomite groups. Molveno has been the destination of tours and expeditions since the last century.
