History stays alive on a train ride The day was August 13, the year 1907, when an important part of Renon’s history was written: the inauguration of the Railway Renon leading from the main square Piazza Walther in the heart of Bolzano directly to the plateau of Renon. The Railway Renon was designed on the model of Swiss mountain railways during the Belle Epoque. In 1966, the cog railway was shut down and a then modern cable car was built, connecting the city and the mountain from Bolzano to Soprabolzano. Meanwhile, the historic narrow-gauge railway still runs from Collalbo to Maria Assunta, operating partly with original cars and partly with more modern ones. It is the only one of its kind left in South Tyrol. The spectacular view of the Dolomites along the track is reason enough to catch a ride on this witness of past times. Plus, at every stop you can get off and start a hike on one of numerous trails leading right into the natural green of meadows and forests.

Delusione! Un grande delusione. Lo fanno solo per fare guadagnare a ferrovia e funevia. Sconsigliò ai visitatori e espositori. Disappointment! A big disappointment. They do it only for to make money on the railways. I did not recommend to visitors and exhibitors.

If you visit the Renon region you can take the train to go from one place to another. The train in 100 years old and runs in the middle of an amazing scenery of the Dolomites and the Alpine region of Soprabolzano.

This is a very scenic railway line that runs along the Ritten Plateau and you can combine it with the cable car. We purchased a dual return ticket from Ritten to Bolzano for two and this cost €30. Well worth using even if just for...More

We took a beautiful ride on the narrow gauge railway between Collabo/ Klobenstein, the start of trail #24 to the earthen pyramids. It is a slow trip through the forest and past small farms. Great views. We even saw deer.

This little train rides frequently up and down on the Ritten plateau. It brings you to the cable car that goes down from Soprabolzano to Bolzano. It's an excellent way of public transport. Leave your car at the hotel and enjoys this ride. Highly recommended!

We spent one full day enjoying the trip in the Renon Cable car, with spectacular view of mountains, green pasture, beautiful houses until we arrive Sopra Bolzano. Vineyards where you look around you. There we took the train to Collalbo. What a lovely trip !...More
