Raffeiner Orchid World

300 orchid species, a lakescape and the Tropical Villa make up the charm of the Raffeiner Orchid World in Gargazzone.

With almost 300 days of sunshine a year, South Tyrol also offers the right climate for orchids, which sometimes presents itself as almost Mediterranean. Up to 4-5 years pass before an orchid blossoms, and this entire process can be witnessed in Gargazzone, where the Orchid World is located. The family business has set itself the aim of growing and selling orchids of the highest quality, but also of bringing the "queen of all flowers" closer to visitors.

Here, the orchid becomes an experience that can also be felt at information stations. In addition, there is a lakescape with koi carps, the Tropical Villa, an adventure playground, and the ORCHIDEA, so that the visit becomes a real family excursion. The rooms are also available for events. In autumn, part of the exhibition revolves around pumpkins…

By the way: Those orchids are offered that flower for a long time, have beautiful leaves and colours, and are vigorous. This is how the concept of the South Tyrolean Orchid developed: Today, 300 of the more than 30,000 existing species can be admired and bought. And how to reach the Raffeiner Orchid World "Orchideenwelt Raffeiner" in German, "Mondo dell'Orchidea Raffeiner" in Italian? It is located along the state road in Gargazzone (Gargazon), on the left-hand side towards Merano, about 2 km before the village itself. There are plenty of parking spaces available.
