If you come from north, we suggest to take the motorway exit 'Bozen Nord' and to go on in direction Bolzano/Bozen passing through the quarter called 'Rentsch'. Take the right before the valley station of the Renon cableway and follow the signs for Jenesien. After having passed S. Antonio's bridge, take a left and after other 200 meters take a right again. Now you are on the road to Jenesien. At this point you have around 15 minutes of journey through the mountains, where you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Dolomites.

If you come from south, take the motorway exit 'Bozen Süd' and follow the many signs that will take you to destination.

Attention: We invite you to follow the signs San Genesio/Jenesien on the street and not the indications of the navigation device.
