Precious pearl in a precious treasure: the words of Fogazzaro remain the most appropriate definition for the Molveno Lake, the largest natural Alpine lake located in Italian territory at an altitude of 800 meters, famous for its intense blue color and the transparent water.
In the waters of the lake reflects the fascinating profile of the Brenta Dolomites. A pristine landscape and almost magical, perfect for a spring weekend. The town of Molveno is located north east, on the shores of the lake, surrounded by forests of fir and beech trees that extend all the way up to a height of 2000 meters.
Fishers love this lake for the many types of fish: trout, brook trout, carp, tench, barbel and Cavedoni ...
But Molveno also attracts many lovers of wind sports thanks to the Ora del Garda, a seasonal wind that blows from March to October, mid-morning to late afternoon, promoting the practice of sailing, surfing and paragliding.
The perimeter of the lake is completely viable, either on foot or by bicycle or on horseback.
Offering a number of ideas: from the forts of Napoleon, built by the Austrians in the last century, and within walking distance with a short walk from the town of Molveno, the center of Andalo (Parish Church SS Vincenzo Modesto Crescenzio with Renaissance portal) or its farms, ancient settlements that together have given birth to the township. From Molveno you can then climb by cable car to the Pradel plateau and unique vantage point on the Brenta.
For gourmets, we note the salmerini, typically steamed, or even the lake trout that can reach large dimensions.
Tasty mixed grill of the lake, and for those who prefer meat or veal stew of mixed meats, paired with polenta and mushrooms. In addition to traditional dumplings and strangolapreti course.
Continue on state road 421 you’ll arrive to Lake Tenno, a small artificial lake which enjoys an excellent climate, lying halfway between Lake Garda and the inland mountains. Famous is his castle, a mixture of styles that joins past and present.
Further south lies Lake Ledro, known for the remains of the famous stilt, discovered in 1929, when the lake level was lowered for the hydropower plant under construction in Riva del Garda.
On the southern shore of the lake is a stretch of pile dwellings, over 10.0000:
one of the largest prehistoric discoveries until then in Italy and one of the most important witness in Europe
The pile dwellings were cataloged between the stations of the late-Neolithic and Neolithic, as part of the finds belonging to this age.
The valley of Ledro is a natural green gym marked with mountains paths CAI-SAT, rock climbing, military roads and forest trails for mountain biking, and golf facilities that allow you to enjoy a myriad of sports and activities.
From sailing to mountain biking, fishing to hiking or horseback riding or paragliding
