The weather in Bolzano was overcast the day we planned to take the cable car to Renon, but we decided to go anyway. While we never clearly saw the Dolomite peaks, the ride to Overbozen was fabulous. We also took to train at the top to Klobenstein, and found the whole trip to be wonderful. We ate lunch in Renon,... More

While a quick trip up and down would itself be worth the cost, plan to spend several hours or a day touring the charming villages and parks at the top. Enjoy the train to the end and then walk to the 'Earth Pyramids' for an unusual discovery. Several restaurants and hotels offer dramatic views of the soaring Dolomites as well... More

This amazing cablecar ride up to the town of Renon is probably the among the top 3 things to do in Bolzano, especially if you're just visiting briefly like we did. The views from the car on a clear day are probably just wonderful. We visited Bolzano on a rainy day, but even then enjoyed the vistas. It's also surprising... More

We went up the mountains on the cable car, which was on one hand more comfortable than driving up the mountain or even hiking, but on the other hand it also provided amazing views. It was very easy, parking is right next to the base station, and we had to wait for max 5 minutes to get to our cable... More

This cable car went on for a lot longer than I expected. We climbed one mountain, then it went on across a valley to another. The views across Bolzano and the surrounding valleys was really good. At one point along the way you get a glimpse of the earth pyramids of the Renon too. It was such a good journey... More

Of the cable cars we took in northern Italy, this was the most amazing. New, smooth, clean, and it goes on seemingly forever! You think you are at the top, but there is a valley to cross, and another mountain to climb. Amazing views. Unfortunately, it was rainy at the top the day we were there, so we did not... More

It's a renewed Cable car from 2009, and a new "Hi Tec Look" station. It runsevery few minute and has cabin which can carry 35 passengers. It climbs about 1000 Meters up the mountain. When you reach Ritten-Renon, you can take a nice walk on the mountain side or have a nice coffee in the fresh mountain-air. The cost is... More

If you are in Bolzano and want to do something interesting that does not take much walking, then this is a good option. If you do want to go walking, then walking around on top of the hill makes a pleasant half day or day, and there are lots of villages and restaurants to keep you fuelled. It was a... More
