Beautiful ride, nice hike. Well worth doing. I only had a day in the area and am so glad I did this. It obviously doesn't get you into the depths of the mountains, but gives great views of the surrounding area. Fresh air, Alpine cattle, horses, sheep!

The ride takes you from Bolzano to Renon, in some 15-20minutes. The views are magnificent, it's a shame we had a cloudy day! On the top of the hill is Renon a very small and beautiful Alpine village, there are some restaurants and some shops. We walked around took some pictures and got to church in 30 minutes. From there... More

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
