Things to do with kids in Locarno


Falknerei – Link.

A breathtaking show demonstrating falconry featuring falcons, giant owls, eagles, a huge vulture and other wild birds. You will learn about the history of falconry and will see some predator birds in action. A very exciting experience especially for kids seeing the birds up close, also when they fly really low over your head and actually touch you with their wings. Aftershow the show, kids can take a picture with one of the birds or have a short pony ride.
