The San Genesio Cable Car was planned in the 1930s - today it leads from the Bolzano’s outskirts to the popular Monzoccolo.
San Genesio (Jenesien, in German), a village on the Monzoccolo high plateau with wonderful hiking trails and its larch forests which every autumn light up in various shades of red, can be reached on a 10 km long winding mountain road or by the San Genesio Cable Car. Its history dates back to the Thirties of the last century when a cable car was planned on the initiative of a local businessman in order to connect the town in a fast and comfortable way to the high plateau.
It was inaugurated in 1937 and has been modernised several times in the last decades, the last time in 2000. The cable car starts near Castel Roncolo and the Talvera Meadows and takes visitors in 9 minutes up to 1,047 m a.s.l. Enjoy this ride, as you will see South Tyrol from a very different perspective - from the castles of the Oltradige area to the roofs of the town of Bolzano and the rough peaks of the Dolomites. The San Genesio Cable Car operates daily every half and full hour.
The San Genesio Cable Car finally stopped operating on November 22nd 2020, a new construction of the facility with a tailor-made mobility concept is being planned.
