tourist info

Monte Bondone, also known as “L’Alpe di Trento” (the mountain of Trento), is a spectacular natural panoramic terrace overlooking the mountain ranges of Trentino, from the Brenta Dolomites to Adamello. It is a charming mountain in both summer and winter. Ski slopes have been present and active since the Second World War, and the first system, operating as a ‘sledge lift’, dates back to the 1930s. Near the peaks of Bondone, on the Piana delle Viote, there is a Botanical Garden with over 2 thousand species of plants and flowers from the five continents.

The structure of the former military polygon (used until the 1970s for military training) was later redeveloped for the construction of the Osservatorio Terrazza delle Stelle (managed by the MUSE Science Museum of Trento).
