Falconeria Locarno

Via delle Scuole 12, Locarno, Swiss Alps, 6600

The Basics

Most travelers visit Falconeria Locarno independently, and though it’s possible to buy tickets at the entrance, it’s a good idea to prepurchase them during school holidays to avoid disappointment. With a convenient location close to town, this fun and informative attraction is an easy addition to any Locarno sightseeing itinerary. Much of Locarno dates from the 12th century, and the park’s bird handlers bring the town’s history and traditions into the shows.
