  • The views from the top are out of this world. You can get the cable car to the top which only takes about 30 minutes to get to the top. Well worth a visit to see the beautiful views.  more »

  • Such a beautiful view!! Prepare for some waiting time for the cable cat. But the reward is a stunning view on the make and its surroundings.
  • Great view! Get tickets at the Malcesine info center and you won't have to wait in a queue for tickets
  • The line for the cable car is fast and you can reach the top fast. There's a nice bar up there. The view is absolutely amazing and you can go even higher on your own. Nice hiking routes.
  • When visiting Lake Garda, a trip to the top of Monte Baldo is a wonderful way to take in the beauty of the area. There is a cable car from the town of Malcesine... the ride takes about 25 minutes in two stages. When you exit the station at the top, turn to you left and walk up the short hill. Then walk for about 15 minutes to the best viewpoint. Well worth it. For the more adventurous, there are some seriously long trekking paths but you need to have the right gear. We went up just before 10 am and there was only a small queue. However, we were told that later in the day it can take an hour of queuing to get onto the cable car.
  • The view is breathtaking! Unfortunately the time for the cable car 🚠 is horrible! Even with the tickets bought via internet we spent more than 1.5 hours in both directions waiting for the place in the cable car. It is very risky to go there after 3 pm if you travel with ferry from Limone or other city- because of the queue and the delays we missed the last ferry (19.20) and had to take the taxi. Please remember that the temperature on the top is much lower than in the Malcesine.
