Rosenburg - The Falconry Castle
The falconry centre in the Rosenburg castle, which once was seat of the burggrave of Riedenburg, presents the extraordinary flying skills of eagles, vultures and other flying raptors. Come and attend the breathtaking flight shows of our birds of prey!
Children and adults always gaze at the flight shows of the lords of the air presented by the station for research and protection of endangered species. Before and after the show it is also possible to admire the birds of prey in the courtyard in front of the castle.
The museum of the castle presents the history of falconry, gives interesting information and explains curiosities about the birds of prey and the complete local fauna. It also provides an insight into the history of the counts of Riedenburg and of the Rosenburg castle.
All of our birds of prey come from breeding stations, mainly from ours. Therefore, the number of the birds living free in natural environment is unspoilt. In addition, restoration of animals in captivity contributes to the survival of many endangered species. Our centre co-operates with the institute for birds diseases “Institut für Geflügelkrankheiten” of the university Münchner Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. Its students regularly visit our breeding station in order to get to know birds of prey directly.
