How to reach Lake Prags

Besides the famous Three Peaks, Lake Prags is without any doubt one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Dolomites. It is no wonder, as the beautiful and emerald green mountain lake is a really special place.

All year round, nature lovers from near and far come to Prags in order to see the picturesque lake and to hike in the surrounding area. To protect the nature idyll – part of UNESCO World Natural Heritage – and to make the arrival easier to visitors, traffic is limited in Prags during the summer months from 10 July to 10 September.


Access with the own car or motorbike

  • Currently, the Prags Valley is open all day and without online booking.
  • From 10 July to 10 September 2024 a traffic regulation applies for Prags. During this period, the Prags Valley can only be reached from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm by public transport or with proof of an online reservation or a valid transit permit.
