Molveno

A paradise for your holidays in Trentino

  • Wintersports in the ski area Paganella
  • Hiking in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park
  • Mountain biking in the Dolomites

Where to find it

Molveno is a town of just over 1,000 inhabitants, and is located 40 kilometres from Trento, on the shores of the enchanting lake that goes by the same name, surrounded by the Brenta Dolomites, in the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park. In 2021, Lake Molveno won the title of most beautiful lake in Italy for the seventh time, awarded by Legambiente and Touring Club Italiano, while the town has been awarded the Orange Flag.
 

What to do

If you love sports and leisure, Molveno is the place for you: in summer you can try windsurfing on the lake, a game of tennis, or an outing by boat or pedalo. Not to mention paragliding, canoeing, stand up paddling, a swim in an Olympic swimming pool, or a walk along the shores of the lake. If, on the other hand, you love hiking or mountain biking, you can follow the Dolomiti di Brenta Trek and Dolomiti di Brenta Bike routes, which will lead you to the heart of the Brenta Dolomites, a UNESCO world heritage site. And then, if you love spending your days at high altitude, from the town, the new cablecar will take you comfortably to the Pradel plateau, where you can find the adventure trails of the Forest Park, which the children will adore.

In winter, on the other hand, you can go skiing in the Fai della Paganella district, or follow the paths of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park with snowshoes.

If, on the other hand, you prefer relaxing, in addition to enjoying the quiet of the large lakeside beach, all year round you can enjoy walks to the mountain dairies or mountain huts and taste the specialities of Trentino, with a view over the Brenta Dolomites, which turn pink at dawn and dusk.
 

How to get there

If you are travelling by car from the south, on motorway A22 del Brennero, you exit at Trento Nord and then continue towards Mezzolombardo. You then follow the directions for Fai della Paganella, Andalo and Molveno (you will arrive after 25 kilometres). If you are arriving from the north, on the A22 exit at San Michele all’Adige and follow directions for Mezzolombardo, then Fai della Paganella, Andalo and Molveno for 25 kilometres. If you are travelling by bus, you can reach Mezzocorona from Trento on line 751, and from here you can reach Lake Molveno with line 611. But there are also other lines that can get you to Molveno: on the Trentino Trasporti website you will find more precise times and routes. Finally, if you prefer travelling by train, you can reach Trento and take the “Trento-Malè” train to Mezzolombardo, and from here you can travel to Molveno by

Active mountain holidays

A view of San Lorenzo in Banale on a sunny day. The red and purple spots of the many pots of flowers, perhaps geraniums, stand out in the picture: they are hanging from the windows and the edge of a terrace surrounded by arches, leaning on the steps and on a small balcony. The sunshine and these bright colours convey a sense of cheerfulness.
