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.

We started by making the round of the cages, it took us about 20 minutes. the Park seems to be under construction and I guess they lack the means to continue to grow. However, the staff is very friendly and the show breathtaking. the birds that are in cages make the show for an hour. the show is given in Italian and German, but we were provided the translation into french in order to follow what is told. the birds fly over our heads, it was really great to be able to approach them like this.show original

A great morning. The birds were incredible and the show very entertaining.
