Renon's new cable car opened on May 23, 2009, offering a whole bunch of fantastic advantages for vacationers and local commuters alike: a generous schedule, short travel time and easy access. It's a true gem. It only takes 12 minutes for the gondolas to move from Bozen/Bolzano to Oberbozen/Soprabolzano - they depart every 4 minutes, so there's practically no waiting time.

This is a good place for a family outing. There are great walks that are not steep for the not so young and for kids.

The cable car to Oberbozen is a wonderful, scenic ride, not to be missed when you are in Bolzano. The station is a mere 20 minute walk from Piazza Walther. We were in Bolzano this July and it was sweltering hot. Oberbozen, on the other...More

We recently took the Funivia Renon to Oberbozen, and from there, took the tram. There are numerous hiking opportunities of various lengths and difficulty. The views are extraordinary.

From Bolzano train station turn right and walk for about 7 minutes and you will see the Funivia Renon cable car station in front (glass building). I believe it is operates all year round. Check their website for prices.
