This trail runs along vineyards, meadows and forests through the Bolzano lowlands. Walking time to complete this path is approx. 5 hours. The level of difficulty can be classified as easy to moderate, making it suitable for families.

Renon / Ritten
Hiking, horseback riding or mountain bike tours on the high plateau Renon

The Renon / Ritten is the largest sun plateau of South Tyrol, making up an area of more than 100 square kilometers with its villages. It extends above Bolzano. In the photo you can see the wonderful mountain panorama of the Dolomites. A trip with the Ritten railway is equally interesting, as it has connected Soprabolzano / Oberbozen and Collalbo / Klobenstein for over 100 years.

San Genesio / Jenesien
The cable car of San Genesio takes you directly from Bolzano to the Monzoccolo Mountain

Located about 10 kilometers away from Bolzano, the high plateau of San Genesio / Jenesien offers breathtaking views on the city. San Genesio is located at about 1000 meters above sea level and offers quietness and clean air. The plateau features a rich variety of vegetation, characterized by vast grasslands and dense forest areas.

Colle di Bolzano / Kohlern

The Colle / Kohlern cable car is the oldest levitating funicular in the world. The small mountain village of Kohlern is an oasis of calm. It is so close to Bolzano and yet it seems so far away.

Val Sarentino / Sarntal
Hiking in the Val Sarentino in South Tyrol with the whole family

Even the idyllic Val Sarentino offers many exciting opportunities for hiking. The walks through the valley are diverse; they offer recreational fun for the whole family or even challenging adventures for professional hikers.

Caldaro / Kaltern

The municipality of Caldaro lies between Appiano and Termeno on the South Tyrolean wine route, and is a hugely popular tourist destination in the region.
