Ritten’s cable car promises a breathtaking journey with spectacular views

Just like magic - Suspended in the air as you move up to Ritten’s sunny plateau

Ritten's 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 Oberbozen/Soprabolzano to Bozen/Bolzano –they depart every 4 minutes, so there’s practically no waiting time. 
Timetable all the Ritten

Every 4 minutes starts the cablecar Ritten from Bolzano and Oberbozen from 6:30 to 21:00 and after there every 8 minutes to 21:48  and the last start at 22:45, Sundays starts from 7:10
Travel time: 12 minutes. Timetable

The valley terminal is located conveniently close to the city center. The historical old town can be reached comfortably in a 10-minute-walk or a less-than-five-minute bus ride. And so Renon’s cable car, constructed by the South Tyrolean company Leitner, has become a world-class model for public transportation. It unites all the advantages of an aerial tramway and a detachable gondola lift through the use of three cables (two support cables and one haul cable). The two support ropes make for an increased wind resistance, the spacious cabins hold up to 30 passengers, and bikes and strollers can also be brought on board. Thanks to the operation of up to eight cabins, a gondola departs every 4 minutes, and passengers can wave good-bye to restricting schedules and waiting times. During times of lesser demand and lower frequency of runs, gondolas are detached and thus energy can be saved.

What advantages to expect from the new Renon Cable Car:
  • No waiting times.
  • A schedule with no limits.
  • Modern cabins that offer comfortable seating.
  • Easy boarding and disembarking.
  • Breathtaking view of the Rosengarten/Catinaccio and Schlern/Sciliar, of Bolzano and the Überetsch/Oltradige area.
  • Travel with a clean conscience: Park your car - it’s easier, more comfortable and a lot prettier to move around on the Renon mountain by public transit.
  • Ride the cable car for free with your RittenCard.
