This is what I'd call "Insane beauty"
There are a few cafe's just after the carpark, before the entrance. We couldn't resist the tempting hot snacks so we grabbed some cheesy fries, a couple of Cappuccino's, our favourite gelato flavours and then headed to the site. I strongly suggest you fill your bellies too because, you will need the energy to walk around the trail. We were there last summer but it was still very cooling as it was raining for the past few days.
Oh my God! On the path to the lake, the landscape surrounded this lake alone was already so breathtaking...beautiful green pine trees, the fabulous Dolomites mountains range with clouds just resting above it against the bright blue sky....ridiculous! As we walked further towards the platform slowly getting a glimpse of the waters, the lake against this whole backdrop was simply gorgeous.
After what felt like hundreds of photo/selfies, we took a left and followed a trail, just strolling in between huge pine trees, admiring even the slightly damp grounds, parts covered with moss, mulch, insects, breathing in fresh air ...just admiring and enjoying the time , counting our blessings to even have the opportunity be a part of this place. After two hours roaming around, we ended up taking a spot at the right side of the lake snapping countless more photos amongst the many professional photographers already there. Don't ever miss this beautiful lake!

I would sound strange here, because everybody loves this lake so much, but my husband and I were kind of disappointed when we saw it. We arrived at the end of September on a sunny beautiful day. Parked at the big parking nearby (very convenient). When we approached the lake, we were a bit shocked how small it was. We didn’t know this before, but apparently the lake is the fullest in spring when the water comes from the mountains when everything melts. And in this season it’s very tiny. I guess it just didn’t meet our expectations. It looked different on photos. The panorama is enjoyable though. The water has a beautiful color and the mountains on the background look like a stunning frame. One more thing: in the morning when we were there, the sun was coming from the side of the mountains which was not very good for photos. Pictures came out pretty anyways, but you couldn’t see the texture of the mountains. So my recommendation is to choose carefully the right season and the right time of the day for your visit.

Tens of thousands of trees blew down in a storm in 2018 and the views over this lake do not look like the picture. At all. But it is a pretty little lake and the colour does change with the clouds and light of the day.

While I cannot agree with another reviewer's assessment that this is better than Lago di Braies, it's still very pretty, though miniscule. The color of the water is superlative and the mountains make a great backdrop. We were in a rush and only spent 10 minutes there, but it justified the overall 1 hour detour to see it.

Went here for a walk around the lake. It is very beautiful, especially in the summer if it is sunny.
You can’t go to the lake itself, but there is a nice walkway around it through the forest.
Well worth a visit, but keep in mind it gets very crowded during the day.

Wonderful! Wonderful feeling visiting that place. Got there early in the morning so it was not overloaded with people. Enjoyed the walk around the lake although a bit chilly even in August but all worth it.

The lake is nothing but real! So clean and the colours are as you see them in the photos. Parking is 1EU/hour. We got there around 3.30pm and had no problem parking. Worth the visit, especially before tourists realise its existence as they did for Braies:)

I have been to many many lakes but this is the most beautiful lake that I ever been! There is no other lake like this one.
The color of the water is just unbelievable - you can't believe your own eyes. The Sella mountains adds to the dramatic background of this lake.
It is one of the most popular spots and you will see large number of tourists there - and I can see why this is the "must see" place.
The lake itself is not big at all - there are wooden walkway all around the lake, preventing access to the water and most of the people stay at the "balcony".
There is trails from the lake which we took for a while but decided it was not that spectacular and the direction was confusing so we went back to the lake.

There is a modern visitor center near by with large parking lot (fee), restaurant and shops.

This is the "must see" - I don't think you can find more beautiful lake anywhere! ( If you do, please let me know.)

If you find yourself within a 3-4 hour train ride from Lago di Carezza you MUST go.

My husband and I were a little unsure since we were a 3 hour train ride away, but it was 100% worth it. We stayed in Bolzano a night (cutest city ever) and took the 180 bus from the bus station (just down the street from the train station) to the lake.

We had no idea what bus to take or where to get off, but the bus driver was extremely friendly when we asked him any questions :)

For those wondering or have plans to go this is what we did in detail:

We took a train to the Bolzano bozen station, got off the train, and went straight to the bus station (across the street and go left and it’s like a three minute walk).

We bought our bus ticket at the bus station. Just tell them you’re going to lago di Carezza. The ticket is about 8 euros each.

Bus 180 takes you there. We had to change buses at ponte nova so make sure you know if you have to change or not.

The bus stop is literally right in from of the lake. There are a few cafes and clean bathrooms there. There’s an underground link to the lake by the cafes and about a 20-30 minute walk around the lake.

You buy your bus ticket back on the bus right in front of the lake.

Hope this helps and convinces anyone reading this to go! It really was magical and worth the long trip :)
