Campodazzo in the valley basin is the end of the Renon High Plateau towards the Valle Isarco: The Isarco Valley Cycle Path passes by here

Campodazzo is not located on but below the Renon Plateau: It is the small village that spreads out a few kilometres after Bolzano and Prato all'Isarco below the Brennero state road around the Alte Post Inn. Here you are quite far from the rest of the villages in the municipality of Renon, which are scattered on the high plateau as far as down into the Sarentino Valley. There is no direct road from Campodazzo up to the Renon, the best and most comfortable connection is the Renon Cable Car from Bolzano or - just before it - the road up to the Renon from the district of Bolzano-Rencio.

The little village consists only of a few houses, the climate here at an altitude of 373 metres is mild. In the centre of Campodazzo (Atzwang), two buildings catch the eye: The Parish Church of St. Joseph features a rosary group from 1905 and a statue of St. Joseph with the Child Jesus, both works by the South Tyrolean sculptor Franz Tavella (1844-1931). The other building is the historic Gasthof Alte Post, one of the most beautiful and oldest inns in South Tyrol. Bay windows, windows with wrought iron grilles, cross vaults from the 12th century and wooden panelling from the 18th century form a festive backdrop for the typical South Tyrolean dishes served here.

They taste especially good after a hike or bike tour. The Valle Isarco Cycle Path passes by, and cyclists like to stop at the cycle station on the other side of the road. In addition, hikes criss-cross this area, which are often combined with the traditional Törggelen in autumn. One of them is a circular hike that takes about 4.5 hours from the lowest point of the Renon, Campodazzo, following the traces of ancient legends to Longostagno on the high plateau and then back again.
