Create an itinerary including Falconeria Locarno
Learn more about the ancient art of falconry and watch live demonstrations at Falconeria Locarno. Originating 4,000 years ago on the Asian plains, this form of hunting was first brought to Europe by Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen after visiting Arabia. Watch falcons, eagles, owls, vultures, and other birds of prey take part in acrobatic flights right in front of and above you. Commentary on the characteristics of each species and the history of falconry are given during the show, but only in German and Italian. Between shows, checkout the aviaries, grab a snack, speak with the falconers, or walk the grounds. Check the website for more information and daily show times. Falconeria Locarno is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • This woman is magical Shes like a Mix of Artemis and Athena Thank you for one of the best days in my life. I love birds (animals) so much 🕊🦅🦜Please continue taking care for them in this little paradise ❤️
  • Beautiful show. Kids really enjoyed it. Birds are flying very close, sometimes next to you. If you want to get a chance that they put a bird on you - wear a cap. And be ready to take pictures - it is just few seconds. Kids can ride a pony after the show.
