The Lake of Molveno, formed by an avalanche some 4,000 years ago, is the second largest in Trentino/Südtirol (3.3 km²). It has a maximum depth of 123 m.
The area of Molveno is known to have been settled since the Neolithic age. Due to its strategic position at the entrance of the Brenta-Paganella plateau, it was contended between the Bishops of Trento, the counts of Tyrol and the counts of Flavon.
