Attraction details
Owner description: At the very heart of South Tyrol, above the region's capital city Bozen, reigns the high plateau of the Renon mountain. All of its 15 villages, some smaller than others, scattered from the lovely vineyards in the valley all the way up to the breezy altitudes of Alpine highlands, offer recreation, culture and tons of nature to experience and enjoy. Lose yourself in the vastness of one of the world's most beautiful views. Revel in every bite of tasty culinary treats and relish every bit of wholesome relaxation. And if you're craving action and adventure, find your natural high in the diverse and breathtaking landscape. Welcome to the sunny Renon plateau - because we all deserve a sunny spot!

I planned an autumn short vacation of three nights / two days on the Renon / Ritten plateau, and I enjoyed it very much, walking fascinating trails.
The excursions are made ​​easy by the excellent signage. You need to bring packed lunch, because the lunch hour often comes in alpine or otherwise lonely places.
The first day, leaving from Longostagno / Lengstein, we walked up to the small church of St. Verena and back. Soon after we headed to the cable car station for Punta Lago Nero / Schwarzsee Spitze (cable car starts from Tre Vie / Pemmern) .
Then at the top station of the ropeway, we walked the beautiful panoramic round trail, in a high mountain environment, which crosses huge stretches of "mugo" pine and offers - if the weather is favorable - a very wide panorama of the Alps, up the Ortles on West and Marmolada on East.
We then walk down the path, back to the valley station of the ropeway.
On the second day, starting from Soprabolzano / Oberbozen, we walked another circular path, the so-called "Themenweg" , which leads to Assunta / Maria Himmerfahrt, and from there by bends down to the valley, to reach the earth pyramids in the small canyon of Rivellone / Rivelaun river: a view for which the plateau is famous.
Edged up in Soprabolzano, we took the lovely, efficient Renon small train up to the last stop of Collalbo / Klobenstein, and from there we walked back to Soprabolzano through the so-called "Freud walk", because often traveled by the famous scientist during his stay on the plateau. The walk is so easy that it can also be made by strollers.
The paths for us have made easier by having a car, but most of the trails are anyway easily accessible by a very efficient public transport.
In particular, the combination of Bolzano-Soprabolzano ropeway and Soprabolzano-Collalbo small train makes possible these paths also leaving from the city of Bolzano and coming back each night.
But of course it's more convenient to stay overnight on the plateau: in Collalbo or in Soprabolzano, which are the most central places.
Overall, a very recommendable stay!

It is a place where people of all ages and hikers of all abilities can enjoy a very panoramic view!

The walks are easy. There are loads of path and they are properly sign posted! You could and walk on what they called Sigmund Freud's favourite place. The meadows here are amazing with the Dolomites as the backdrop!

You can walk for ages and not being tired because you are well spoilt with the magical meadows, the blue sky, the clouds and the mountains. There are benches along the paths so if your feet are sore you can simply sit down and relax and enjoy the gift of nature.

If you don't have a car it is very accessible from Bolzano using a cable car. The views from the cable car is also magnificient!

There are so many places in the world I have yet to see, so I rarely go back to one's I've been to. However, I will be going back to Soprabolzano to hike more of its trails, and wander amongst the mountains, the trees, the cows, and the meadow flowers. Gorgeous, and accessible even for those of limited agility.
