Those who catch a glimpse of the Dolomites reflected in the deep, green waters of the Karersee lake will appreciate why there have long been legends about this lake, the depth and size of which change with the passing of the seasons. According to one story, the lake was made by the dwarf-king Laurin. He is said to have played with the colours in the sky to win the heart of a beautiful water nymph. She did not give in to him and so he made the rainbow disappear into the lake.
Karersee lake is easy to reach via public transport. If you want to go for a hike, you can reach the lake on foot in summer and in winter.
