Really fun and unique experience

Would recommend for both adults and children alike. The performance is only in German and Italian but you don't have the speak the language to understand what's going on.

This was an amazing experience. The narration was in italian which we didn't understand, but that didn't matter as the show itself was stunning! At times there were so many birds flying at once you didn't know where to look. The falconeria's were all in traditional costume. Would definitely go again.

I have visited the Falconeria in Locarno two times. Each time it was an extravaganza! For those who love nature, this is a must. The staff of the Falconeria take care of the entire area very well, and are very pleasant. Everything is spotless clean and well looked-after. Beyond words.

This is place to come with children. Very interesting show. They seem a bit desperate in autumn charging extra 2.- for pony riding which last time we came in summer was included in the already pricey entrance fee.

We just had some hours before returning back home. Therefore we decided to see the show at Falconeria in Locarno. It was great! This show is super for all ages. As already mendtioned, the show is in Italian and German.

Great show for any birds of prey lovers, kids or adults. Kids can take a picture with a real owl after the show or have brief horse ride on a small Irish horse.

You will see a wonderful show, somewhat different and unexpected. Birds of prey mostly will show off their skills. You can see them close up and in free flight. The handlers offer interesting information about each bird. Nice location near the lake.

If you don't have a problem with birds performing in a show and being kept in cages for the rest of the time, read on... Falconeria Locarno offers a twice a daily show with various large birds (mostly birds of prey). The birds seem to be well taken care of and are really beautiful. You'll see several "tricks" during the... More
