On an area of around 5,000 m², eagles, buzzards, hawks and kites make their rounds in daily flight demonstrations Around 25 to 30 rare birds of prey live here in pairs in the aviary all year round, a species-appropriate attitude is our top priority. Cared and trained by professional falconers, birds of prey are the undisputed stars in the flight demonstrations. In elegant gliding, daredevil dive’s, fast-paced gliding flight, they glide over the heads of the spectators at breathtaking speed or silently glide towards prey or the outstretched hand of the respective falconer. An impressive experience for the whole family..An educational trail on the history of falconry completes the offer. You can visit the birds in the aviaries, half an hour before and after the flight demonstrations.
