Hike from Pemmern to the Corno del Renon

This hiking tour offers several most beautiful panoramic views on the Dolomites

We start our hiking tour at the parking space near the valley station of the Corno del Renon cable car in Pemmern. However, we decided not to take the cable car but to hike all the way up to Mount Corno del Renon. We pass the restaurant "Gasthof Pemmern" at the left and follow the hiking trail, which is a sledge run in winter. Soon the trail branches off to the right and leads us quite steeply upwards across beautiful alpine pastures until we finally reach a small chapel and enjoy the impressive Dolomites panorama. From here, the trail leads gently upwards across forests and meadows. Arrived at the Unterhornhaus, we have a short rest on its beautiful panoramic terrace.

Behind the Unterhornhaus mountain hut, the trail leads steeply upwards for about half an hour. Finally arrived at the peak of Mount Corno del Renon (2,260 metres a.s.l.) we enjoy a fantastic 360°-view of the surrounding mountain scenery: Val di Funes, Val d'Isarco, Mount Catinaccio, Bolzano. After a short rest, we hike back to our starting point Pemmern.

If this hiking tour is too long or too challenging for you, we recommend you to take the Corno del Renon cable car up to Punta Lago Nero. From there, you can make a very nice 50 minutes hiking tour around Mount Corno del Renon, also accessible for prams, or hike to the peak of Mount Corno del Renon in about half an hour (200 metres of altitude difference)!

Suitable for families? Yes. However, we recommend to take the cable car and to carry small children in a baby rucksack.
