Ritten - Renon

The high sited plateau Renon

Enjoy the soft natural landscape, the never-ending expanse and impressive panoramic views. Renon is the place where summer holidays were invented. Due to the sunny exposition and to the altitude the climate is mild and therefore perfect for vacations.

Here you will find the best view of the Dolomites and much more: nature culture and the possibility to practice a great variety of sports.

Renon is the denomination for the high sited plateau located between the two Isarco and Talvera Rivers, to the north of the provincial capital of Bolzano in South Tyrol. On the altitude between 800 and 1,500 meters, there are sited the locations named Collalbo, Longomoso, Soprabolzano, Longostagno and Vanga.

In 1907, Renon opened its doors to tourists with its first rag railway. Despite a long tradition in tourism, Renon has kept its original touch. This is one of the reasons, why families and hikers simply feel at home here.

The culture of the Renon is maintained with many traditional religious processions and other festivals. There are also ancient frescoes in some of the churches, and in Longomoso stands the "Kommende" of the Deutsche Orden where travellers in medieval times were cared for.

The Renon railway connects the villages Soprabolzano, Costalovara, Lichtenstern and Collalbo. The Renon cable car is particularly useful for commuters and tourists.
