At its longest point, Lake Molveno is almost four and a half kilometers long and up to one and a half kilometers wide. At the deepest point, the beautiful blue mountain lake is 124 meters deep. In contrast, the crystal-clear mountain lake Lago di Nembia south of this is almost tiny. This discovery tour with 16 kilometers and about 200 meters of altitude leads you around the entire Molveno lake to the aforementioned small neighboring lake, which has been declared a nature reserve in cooperation with the environmental foundation WWF and the energy supplier ENEL. There you will find interesting facts about the flora and fauna in and around the lake on numerous information boards. Perhaps you will even find out what the big artificial waterfall on the way is all about and what importance the two bodies of water have for the energy supply. Don't forget your swimming trunks and pack a nice picnic. It starts in Molveno. After the campsite, a nice wide trail meanders along the shore to the old Roman bridge, the Ponte Romano. During the holidays there can be a lot going on here, but typically for Italy there is always a great atmosphere between pedestrians and cyclists. It is not uncommon for you to be cheered on. This mainly happens on the short but steep ascent towards Fortini di Napoleone. After 50 meters of altitude you have already made it. Fortunately, the path is concreted. This gives the tires or shoes a better grip. Many mountain bikers without electrical assistance even dismount to push. As soon as you have reached the hill, a great descent awaits you on a wide gravel path along the lake shore. The mountain forest smells wonderful. In some places it opens and you have an unobstructed view of the lake. At the end of the lake, the descent is a little faster and you roll on an asphalt side road to the small Nembia lake, which is located directly at the foot of a steep rock face of the mighty mountain range of the Brenta Dolomites. This is the perfect picnic and bathing place. You can have a great rest on the beautiful meadow. There are benches and tables, a playground and wooden walkways from which you can jump into the ice-cold water. The way back is on the east side of Lake Molveno. There the trails are a bit narrower and you have a stunning view over the lake to the rugged rocks of the Brenta and the town of Molveno. In a fun up and down, the circular path first leads directly on the lake, later above the road and finally back directly on the shore to the starting point in Molveno. The route can be traveled in both directions and is also suitable for e-bikes. At Lago di Nembia there is a restaurant a little away from the lake and also a fountain to fill up the water reserves.
