  • If one makes as an Austrian, you had mountains on Lake Garda visit, well maybe ghörts one... The snake at the Office was only the first of verrrry we had to deny. Something difficult with a child. Well, the operator can't help. But that lurks behind each corner a new is just nasty. The view can be good at Sun. We just didn't have that. Is the food in the main cabin a CHOW - that in Italy there is even a cook who cooks his Bolognese from Restln? So that was nothing. And tighten please warm, warm! With hood and scarf and all! It was still snowing and we were sadly underdressed - including child.

  • The view of Lake garda worth any effort. For this Council to those who make it, to walk from Malcesine (1800 m). From the arrival of the cable car there are many walks along worth doing. Also recommended to children and animals, the cable car takes you almost to the top and with a short stroll you can enjoy a spectacular panorama. The cable car costs 25 to head a/r. Too.

  • Absaloutley beautiful, stunning mountaintop views with an easy access cable cart, even though foods a little expensive up top it's accompanied by local music what adds to the scenery. A couple animals...  more »

  • 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.
