Autumn hike around Lake Molveno

The walking tour around Lake Molveno and to the Nembia Biotope is an experience at all seasons of the year. But in autumn, when the forest changes colour, it is eminently beautiful.

We start our hike at the parking space at the bridge across the Lago di Bior lake (the north branch of Lake Molveno) straight below the village of Molveno. We follow the path towards southwest which leads us straight to the beach of Molveno. Already from here we can enjoy the beautiful view on the snowy Brenta Dolomites and of course on the deep blue lake. The path proceeds along the lake to the forest and further to the waterfall at the Ponte Romano, an arch bridge from the 13th century.

Our next stage destination is the highest point of our walk and is called Baita ai Fortini di Napoleone. To reach the hut we leave the path around the lake, from above we have a particular beautiful view. After this side trip we continue our walk around the lake until the southern bank where information boards tell about the origin of the lake and its use for energy generation. Here we follow the signposts to Nembia. The education trail leads us to the little Lake Nembia, a shallow crystal clear water where we take a rest in the adjacent park.

After our break we walk back to the southern bank of Lake Molveno. To come back to Molveno again, we take the path on the east bank and enjoy anew gorgeous views on the lake and its surroundings.
