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.

Liked the views and the cost was OK for the distance travelled. Not as much at the Top as had hoped.

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.
