The Karersee (Italian: Lago di Carezza; German: Karersee) is a lake in the Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy and one of the most popular lakes on Instagram and travel websites. I wanted to check it out again (after being there as a child) and you guessed it - there are plenty of people. It’s a nice lake, with great color, but don’t expect too much. If it is part of an itinerary/round trip through the dolomites, make a stop - otherwise you can skip it … on the other side, skipping a drive through the dolomites is not an option 😉 To get a decent parking spot in the parking lot you want to be there really early (parking on the street is not possible). Forget the travel times your Google Maps tells you, this are mountain streets, it will take you 2x as much time - if there is no traffic.
