Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities, Stairs / lift

We took the cable car from the depot near the Bolzano train station up to Soprabolzano. The cars are fully automated and depart frequently. They have some seating inside, but some people stand. Views are fantastic. The arrival and departure of the cable cars seem to be coordinated with the schedule of the small train running out to Collalbo and back, so it is very easy to make the connection, but the views were not as interesting from the train. Once off the train in Collalbo, we decided to walk out of town to see the highly-touted "Pyramids" rock formations. The walk turned out to be much further than we anticipated, and the rock formations themselves were very disappointing, compared to rock formations in the southwestern U.S. or in Cappadocia, Turkey. For us, the walk was not worthwhile, and I do not recommend it. Because we never saw any public buses go by, we had no choice but to walk all the way back to the train station to return on the train and the cable car.

A good, long, comfortable and scenic cable car ride. There are many in the area but this is one of the best. Good all around visibility and some seating for those who need it.

Only downside is any photographs are distorted by the curved perspex windows.

This cable car provides wonderful views as it goes up from Bolzano. A good price for the length of journey and is kept in immaculate condition, the gondolas are swept after each journey and the windows polished, so you get a perfect view. At the top its very close to the little train which takes you through the plateau towards Collalbo. Highly recommended.

The cable car station of Bolzano is situated in the centre of Bolzano, not far away from the railway station. The view in the cable car is stunning. When arriving to Renon you MUST take the small train to Collalbo/Klobenstein or further on.
This is a nice proposal for a day trip (ideal also for families)

Take the cable car up and then either walk or take the narrow gauge train to see the sand pyramids. Really worth it!
