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.
Due to the seasonal weather, the German Raptor Center will only be open at weekends until Friday 3 March 2023. Visitors are welcome to attend a winter flight demonstration followed by a tour of the aviaries and exhibitions on Saturdays and Sundays at 12 p.m. during this time. Please book an online ticket for this.
On Saturday, 24 December, the Castle remains closed.

Dogs are best kept in the shady beer garden during their stay in the Castle Museum and the Deutsche Greifenwarte, where they are provided with fresh water.
