Looking for panoramic spots

Watching Malcesine and Lake Garda from above

You certainly have already read or heard about the beauty of our territory. Maybe you have already been here and even if you already know it, we thought it might be useful to draw a list of the best panoramic spots (some of them are quite obvious and some of them are not) to enjoy the spectacular views that make our little town an unparalleled place nestled between lake and mountain.

So, where should you go to watch the town from above without making any effort?

From the Scaliger Castle in Malcesine

There is much more at the Scaliger Castle than history and museum. There are many panoramic spots, among which the most famous are: the Tower, the Revelino and the little balcony next to the entrance, used as a trampoline by the Red Bull Cliff Diving divers.

At the Madonna dell'Accoglienza

It is situated immediately below the Campiano pass. You can get there on foot or by bicycle if you feel like doing some exercise. You can also drive up the "via Panoramica" to get there and enjoy the view on a beautiful panoramic terrace.

From the via Panoramica

Have you ever wondered why it is called "via Panoramica"?
You can walk, ride, run or drive on this road.
The via Panoramica is 10 km long, it starts and ends in Malcesine passing through Campiano pass: move forward slowly to fully enjoy the stunning views you'll see while going up.

From the cablecar

The Malcesine Monte Baldo cable car leads you up to Mount Baldo (1760 m of altitude). On the upper section, the cabin rotates 360 degrees while ascending, giving great views.

Next to the cable car station

Just beyond the fence, take the first uphill path on the left: 20 meters and you are there, right in front of you one of the most famous picture postcard.

"La colma" of Malcesine

Walk to the north from the cable car station.
After a short ascent, a few kilometers walk on the "Colma" of malcesine awaits you.
Malcesine, Lake Garda and the mountains are right in front of you.
We suggest getting to the fence at the end of the "Colma" where you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic spot over Northern Lake Garda.

Flying your paraglider

The paragliding launch site is situated next to the cable car uphill station, on the "Colma" of Malcesine. You don't need to be so athletic to fly with a tandem paraglider and the view from up there is really unique and exclusive.

From Mount Castello and Tignale hermitage

It is situated on the western side of Lake Garda in a panoramic spot overlooking the lake. You can get there driving up from Tremosine. From Malcesine catch the ferry boat to Limone and then drive up there.

From the "terrazza del brivido"(the terrace of thrill) in Pieve di Tremosine

The terrace is suspended 350 m above the lake and it is located at the Paradiso Hotel. Right in front of you is the eastern side of Lake Garda, Malcesine and Mount Baldo range.
