The views from the fanivia are incredible but once you get to the top there is a great surprise. There is a quaint little town with great dining choices and if you like hiking, hike down to the earth pyramids. It is very economical and only takes about 10 minutes so don't miss this. We did not take the train... More

This is a must do!!! The ride itself is amazing! Views of the Dolomites make you feel like you are in a movie! Photo ops the entire way! Once you reach the top take the train ride!!! I could have gotten off at any of the stops, pitched a tent and lived my life out right there! There are some... More

The cable car journey was far more spectacular than I had expected. And as the vista of Bolzano recedes it is replaced by an array of alpine hamlets set against the soaring Dolomites. Arriving in Oberbozen is like stepping into a time capsule. It was all quite stunning. We will go back again.

It's one of those cable cars replacing the bus. So it goes up very steeply at first with a spectacular view of Bolzano. Then it becomes a lateral trip to a village where there are cars and roads. No view of Bolzano from there! 1h 40min hike back to town was steep and nice. Towards the end there is a... More

Worth 100%. The landscape is incredible! If you have a tourist card you can take the tram and also know the other small towns. All very nice and special

Zigzag roads uphill made me dizzy. However, the view from the cable car is fantastic. When we arrived at the station, we sampled local cake and coffee at the nearby cafe - scrumptious. It's interesting because it really feels and looks like Germany. Only German is spoken in this area, although it's part of Italy now. A real treat!

Took the tram on our last morning in Bolzano. We almost skipped it as we wanted to get on the road, but so glad we didn't Each tram fits quite a few people so it is a little full, but everyone still gets a good view from take off to landing. We didn't spend any time at the top as... More

This is an utterly wonderful activity for Bolzano. Not for the faint-hearted or those with a fear of heights. Great for photos. Beautiful views of the Dolomites.

i really like the cableway. she is silent, fast, really central (close to the main train station) and with the südtirol pass it does not cost a lot. otherwhise about 8 euros go and back. you arrive in OBERBOZEN/SOPRABOLZANO from where you can start various trips or visit Kaserhof (for Horseriding, Lamas/alpacas)

This definitely isn't for people who are scared of heights - I love funiculars and still found it a little nervewracking! But the views are also beautiful, as are the cute little towns at the top, so it's definitely worth enduring a little bit of nerves!
