Spring activities in Locarno

Spring fever

An explosion of colours. When nature comes out of hibernation, the trees burst into bloom and the birds begin to sing once more, then spring has arrived in every corner of Locarno. Enjoy a taste of la dolce vita over your first ice cream, have an espresso in a street café, or take a stroll through the Old Town.

The springtime event “Camelie Locarno" takes place every year at the Parco delle Camelie and is considered Europe’s most important camellia exhibition.  The unbelievable variety of flowers and plants attracts lovers of camellia from all over Europe to Locarno, keen to see this unique sea of flowers with their own eyes.

Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate, the entire region shows itself at its very best in spring. In the gardens and parks along the lake, the fragrance of the flowers and their blaze of colour blend into an incomparable botanical spectacle.
