The municipality of Renon extends on the homonymous high plateau on the sunny side of the Sarentino Alps.

The high plateau of the Renon is delimited by the Isarco river in the east and the Talvera, the river that runs through the Val Sarentino, in the west. Inhabited by more than 7,500 people, the Renon comprises a total of 12 component localities: besides Collalbo (main village), Madonnina, Longomoso, Longostagno, Monte di Mezzo, Soprabolzano, Auna di Sopra, Auna di Sotto, Signato and Vanga, also Campodazzo in the Valle Isarco valley and Castel Novale (Sill) near Bolzano, at the entrance to the Val Sarentino valley, are part of the municipality. They are completed by the hamlets Stella di Renon, Colle Renon and Costalovara with the eponymous lake.

The Renon can harken back on an animated past, a series of prehistorical findings testify the early settlement of this area. Mentioned for the first time around 900 AC under the name "Mons Ritanus", which means the "high ridge of the Renon", this area has been discovered in the 17th century by prosperous citizens of Bolzano who spent their summer holidays on the Renon.

Until 1900 it was not easy to reach the high plateau of the Renon, a fact that changed in 1907 with the construction of the Renon cableway. From this point of time the high plateau could be reached within a short time from the city of Bolzano. In 2009 the news Renon cableway has been inaugurated and put into operation.

Our tip: the Corno di Renon. No matter if you experience this mountain in an alpine hike in summertime or by snow-shoeing in winter, the local mountain of the Renon is worthwhile in every season.
