The Pragser Wildsee (Italian: Lago di Braies, English: Lake Prags or Lake Braies) is a mountain lake in the Prags Valley in the South Tyrolean municipality of Prags. It is part of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park and a protected natural monument.

The lake has become extremely popular to photographers and travelers from around the world due to the crystal clear water and the iconic view from the boat hut towards the mountains. Especially Instagram made this place quite touristic, so getting a good photo here requires standing up early in the morning which can have the additional benefit of morning fog in front of the mountain range, adding some additional mood to your photos.
