In winter dress, Lake Carezza (Karer See | Lago di Carezza) has its very own charm. The surface of the water, which appears so crystal clear and inviting in summer, transforms into a magical world of ice and snow in the cold months. The surface of the lake usually freezes and the sun conjures up a sparkling glitter on the ice crystals.
Surrounded by a snow-covered landscape where nature rests in hibernation, there is an almost magical calm at Lake Carezza.
