Mountbaldo, Malcesine

Reach the summit of Mountbaldo via a cable car stationed in Malcesine. The cable-car ride rises to 1,600 m (5,249 ft) in just ten minutes, taking you to an altitude of 1,760 m (1 mi). Hike to the top for views of Lake Garda. Rest your legs at one of the cafes at the peak. Mountain temperatures are much cooler, so bring a jacket.

  • The area is really nice and offers various types of tours that you can take to even get to the terminus of the cable car and enjoy the scenery.

  • Super great views from the Baldo of course blows it by train, but it is even better to go with a sports car on Riva. Very nice track, but nothing for bad nerves

  • Apart from the splendid panorama that I don't see the effort, aside from the beautiful glimpses every where that I don't live by fatigue. Apart from the wonderful wildlife that won't be rushing from fatigue etc ... I mean a radiance that should live by cable car and not walking. Absolutely recommended.

  • Breathtaking views. Worth going up and doing some wandering on the top. Even with kids -they'll handle it. Make sure to buy the tickets in advance. It'll save you up to 2 hours of waiting. However there will still be a 1 hour queue to get to the cable car. Little heads up: do not order mushrooms in the restaurant at the top station - mine had worms.
  • Instead of taking the cable cars in Malcasine you can drive into the mountains and take the ski lifts up. The views on the drive up are spectacular as are the scenes on the ski lifts. It's also a lot quieter. We loved it.
  • Well worth the drive up from the east side of the mountain. Nice driving roads, and an amazing view.
  • If you want to get here by cable-car its pretty expensive. But you can just walk up in approximately 4hours. Up the mountain you have a lot of walking possibilities and a very nice view over Lake Garda. Bring you camera 😏
  • The lift to the top is divided in 2 pieces. Where the upper gondola's rotate around it's axis to give the travellers a 'golden' view of the Mountains and offcourse the Garda Lake. The price is more or less oké, but could be a little cheaper. Keep in mind that you check the weather in advance. If it's cloudy and windy it will be cold at the summit, so dress appropiatly.
