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.

  • A not to be missed opportunity to step into the world of birds of prey. The show is something that people of all ages can enjoy, full of useful knowledge, shiny feathers, sharp beaks and claws and (possibly) the once in the lifetime chance to be close to such winged beings.
  • Absolutely stunning. Professional, amazing, breathtaking experience. You can‘t imagine how good it is and it‘s definitely not something you expect in a swiss small town! ❤️
