Help to protect our birds of prey and owls – take over or give away a sponsorship. The amount paid for the sponsorship directly benefits the protégé and is used for expenses such as food, veterinary surgeon, medication and maintenance of the keeping facility. There, sick and injured birds of prey and owls are nursed to health under veterinary care and released into freedom again.
Already from a monthly amount of 12,50 Euro you will receive a sponsorship certificate and an annual admission ticket so that you can visit your protégé during regular opening hours. Sponsorship contributions are used for a specific purpose and are tax deductible (donation receipt).
The German Raptor Center is known for its spectacular flying displays with its eagles and vultures. The great number of large, free-flying birds of prey used in the flight shows is almost unique in Germany. Usually huge birds with a wingspan of over two metres, such as griffon vultures, bearded vultures, but also their mighty colleagues, such as various sea eagle species, golden eagles and imperial eagles can be admired in free flight in one and the same show. They circle over the Neckar or high above the battlements of Guttenberg Castle and fly directly over the heads of our guests.
During the flying display, our “ground staff” will provide entertaining knowledge transfer for young and old. The castle’s outer wards with around 80 birds, exhibitions and sculptures offer a close-to-nature insight into the fascinating world of the griffins!
If you plan to visit the museum in addition to the flying display, reduced combined prices apply. The prices can be found in the adjoining menu.
Important notice for dog owners:
Dogs can always be brought to Guttenberg Castle. However, they are not allowed to enter the grounds of the German Raptor Center and thus not to attend the flying display. Access for four-legged friends is not permitted from the barrier in the central castle area onwards.
