German Raptor Center

Experience eagles, vultures and eagle-owls in free flight high above Guttenberg Castle – in any weather! In most cases you can admire giant birds with a wingspan of more than two metres, such as cinereous, griffon and bearded vultures, but also their powerful colleagues, such as various species of white-tailed sea-eagles, golden eagles and imperial eagles, in one and the same demonstration in free flight. They soar over the Neckar, fly high above the castle outer wards or touch the heads of their guests. The large number of free-flying birds of prey at Guttenberg Castle is almost unique in Germany. Our professional “ground personnel” provide thereby entertaining knowledge transfer for big and small.

The castle’s outer wards offer a close-to-nature insight into the fascinating world of the griffin: around 80 birds live here between artistic sculptures. Interactive touch-screen stations and a display case exhibition show native birds of prey in their typical habitats. Life-size silhouettes on the castle tower impressively demonstrate the enormous range of birds of prey.

Flying Display

“Eagles, Vultures & Co.” float in free flight over the Neckar valley or directly over the heads of the visitors and jump through the rows of banks. And that in any weather conditions!

Falconry Lesson

Familiarise yourself with a bird of prey and experience the sublime feeling of having the fascinating creature land on your own gloved hand.
