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.

Access with means of public transport

In fact, it is generally recommendable to come to Lake Prags by train and bus, as it is the most sustainable and stress-free option: the bus tickets for the shuttle service must be purchased via advance booking and prepayment!

By train & bus: By train or bus to Niederdorf, from the bus stop “Von-Kurz-Platz” (about 4 minutes on foot from the train station) with bus no. 442 to Lake Prags.

Kids up to the age of 6 can travel for free, four-legged friends at the normal rate.

All current timetables of train and bus can be found on www.suedtirolmobil.info.

Access with the own car

Reaching Prags with the private car is possible via Pustertal state road too. In this case, traffic jams and problems may be possible at any time. In addition, the road between Schmieden and Lake Prags is closed from 10 am to 3 pm from 10th July to 10th September! At that time, it is only allowed to drive in with a special permission or if you are guests of local accommodations and restaurants.

Schmieden also has a parking lot subject to charge with limited parking possibilities. This parking lot can be booked and paid online and is served by the above-mentioned busses and shuttles. Of course, you can also reach Lake Prags from Schmieden on foot via hiking path no. 1 (1.5 hours of walking time) or by bike without any limits.
