The high-plateau of Prato Piazza and the emerald green Lago di Braies make your stay in Valle di Braies an unforgettable experience.

The Valle di Braies is a side valley of the Val Pusteria that stretches towards south. The villages of S. Vito, Braies di Fuori, Braies di Dentro and Ferrara di Braies make part of the valley which provides two main attractions for visitors, that is to say the Prato Piazza and the Lago di Braies lake.

As Lake Braies is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes of South Tyrol, above all in summertime it attracts a large number of visitors. Also the Prato Piazza, a high altitude terrace at 2,000 m, is a very popular excursion destination in the Valle di Braies. This is where also less experienced mountaineers can make easy walks and promenades, inhaling the refreshing mountain air.

By the way, also Terrence Hill appreciated the beauty of the Valle di Braies, this is where he registered scenes for his TV serial "Un passo dal cielo“.
