Surrounded by apple orchards, the village of Gargazzone/Gargazon is set in the valley along the Aschlerbach stream to the south of the spa town of Merano/Meran. Life in this peaceful village has always been based around fruit farming, handicraft production and tourism.
An ideal starting point for numerous walks, hikes and cycling trips, Gargazzone is also an ideal point of departure for day trips by car or on a motorcycle. A waterfall plunges down the rocks behind the solitary Kröll tower overlooking Gargazzone.
Immersed in a variety of natural and architectural attractions, some of the hotels in Gargazzone are designed to have low environmental impact, and its restaurants are of a high standard. The only natural bathing pond in Western South Tyrol is located in Gargazzone, as well as the largest open-air playground in the region.
