Such a fabulous experience! We brought our two kids, ages 4 and 8, who both had a fantastic experience. The show is in Italian and German, but is fully entertaining and worth it even if you don't understand a word. Signs and brochures are all available in English if needed, and the multi-talented staff also speak English. Must have been close to 20 different species of birds in the show. You lose track of them all by the end, and there are even more species of birds in the enclosures on the grounds. The show is really engaging and fun. The crowd was oo-ing and ah-ing, laughing and gasping. You'd have to be a real grinch not to leave with a smile on your face.

Our daughter got to hold a live owl after the show and get her picture taken, 10 francs was very reasonable for this, and the printed picture turned out great. What a great sport the owl was, dutifully taking pictures with 30+ little kids.

There's a lovely little koi pond filled with huge goldfish where kids can feed the fish with little bottles available at the gift shop. The kids loved it; they were giggling and fascinated the whole time. There's a cute little playground, 2fr pony rides, and a nice cafeterua with good pizza, coffee and snacks. A whole afternoon of kid-friendly activities.

The enclosures for the birds are really nice and well-maintained, especially for a private operation. You can walk around the grounds and see all the birds and learn about them after the show (or beforehand). We went to a similar show at the Los Angeles Zoo a few years ago (also wonderful). This show has more birds, more variety, and a larger arena. It is a really special and unique experience.

We went with our kids, and there were lots of families, but it would also be wonderful as like a Saturday afternoon date activity. There's something really magic and indescribable about having these magnificent birds fly right over your head and all around you. A cool experience to share with someone.

The parking lot was already full when we got there, but we found public street parking in the neighborhood without any trouble. 4 hours for 1 franc, what a deal.

Highly recommend!

Waste of money! 89chf for a family of 5 and then everything fun is extra - want to feed the fish, picture with an owl or ride a pony for 30 seconds all cost extra money! Show was boring, birds looked trapped in there cages, playground was non existent. Avoid at all costs!

Last summer I took my four grandkids for a truly wonderful day out to see these magnificent birds fly so close over our heads. It was brilliant, the staff were good and very helpful and this year I am taking a group from a club for the experience too! Well worth it.

It's a interesting show and the different birds are well explained. It is possible to visit also the birds that are not in the show.

Locarno's falconaria is 10 minutes by taxi from the promenade. I have been to many zoos across the globe but this was the first time to see a falconaria. We saw many types of big birds, falcons, eagles, owls vultures and many more. The amazing part was the one hour show, a great experience, how these vultures are trained and controlled; I enjoyed it despite the Italian narration which I didn't understand. It's recommended visit for the whole family; the visit won't take more than 2 hours if you know when is the time if the show.

Fantastic show with a wonderful combination of free raptors and the people who train, show and care for them. The birds fly closer to the audience than one would believe possible creating interaction with the audience. It's thrilling to watch and feel the wind of their wings as they fly over and around the audience, their perches and cages.
It's easy to forget to take photos as you lose yourself in the moment of watching them fly, flip baskets on the ground, stomp snakes to death (fake-rubber) and catch prey on the fly.
This is not scary for children as the trainers wow them with their skills and commentary including funny things about the birds We took 2 children (4&6 yrs) that had no previous contact with birds, they watched enthralled, loved the bird on the hat and now want to be a bird trainer when they grow up.
I can easily say this is the best bird show due to the amazing range of trained birds and the pace of the whole show. It's so encouraging to know there are people with the care, time to work with these birds and provide information and education.

At first we were slighlty disappointed, we expected a much larger 'park' with more birds to look at. The park itself is really small; however, as soon as the show started I didn't regret spending 25.-
The show is absolutely amazing, wonderfully trained birds are flying directly above your the audience's heads and it's awesome how the audience was made part of the show. In addition, you could see that the birds are treated well, which is always important.

The show alone makes the visit worthwile, the park itself is more like a little bonus. ;)
