German Raptor Research Center

Fascinating World: Around 80 large birds of prey live here. Experience huge birds, with more than two meters wingspan, like Eagles and Vultures, but also Owls in the free flight high above Guttenberg Castle- in almost any weather!
The castle’s outer wards offer a close-to-nature insight into the fascinating world of the griffin. 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.
