German Raptor Research Center
Fascinating World: Around 60 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 touchscreen stations and two showcase exhibitions display selected griffins in typical habitats and various medium and small sized griffins of Europe. Life-size silhouettes on the castle tower impressively demonstrate the enormous range of birds of prey.
Due to the rampant bird flu, we are currently not allowed to accept injured birds of prey and owls. We ask for your understanding.
