  • Who just over want to learn about the species of falcons and hawks, is right here. A guided tour through the very dedicated young Falconer, private or public Guide, is recommended in any case usually at 14:00. Ideal for kids but also adults. Worth a trip!

  • Already after the harsh speech of welcome by the "Falconer", something occurred to me. Already at the beginning, the distraught and fearful animals noticed, that opportunities had at chains moored, no, to pull back. Especially the Eagles are housed in an aviary where they can fly hardly a piece. Accordingly, aggressive, understandably, they behaved then visitors to. Especially the children raised in the barrack square sound, not too close to the animals. Grotesquely, expected the "Falconer" would present guests to take care of the children, even though they had none at all in the company of this. Appropriate comments were derogatory comments from her and exposed the visitors ahead of the group. Time for me to leave this undignified and animal unfriendly scenario. I wonder why here on the part of the authorities not to intervene is and binding requirements for welfare be granted! For me, this was the first and last visit there. In the future I will look at better this proud animals in the wild.

  • Oh my goodness, this mountain was gorgeous. If you like nature and you're visiting Germany, I highly recommend visiting here. You can drive up all the way to the top if you don't want to (or have time to) hike. If you want to enter the lookout tower you need cash. I only had a credit card and they wouldn't accept it.
  • We had a great and informative day in the Falcon yard. You could admire great birds without a flight demonstration. From a particularly curious Caracaras over several owls, a cute snowy owl to majestic Eagles was a lot. The owner and Falkner Christian Wick takes a long time for the questions of the visitors themselves and one notices him much fun to work with the animals. Ticket prices are totally reasonable, the location above is of course an additional field mountain plateau plus. We shall certainly return to an air show in the summer.

  • Very nice excursion destination and a great view. The Falconer on the big box Hill was founded in 1965 and is Hesse's oldest highest falconry. There are about 26 species of birds during a tour to admire. Hawks, falcons, owls, Jackdaw, Adler and co. can be seen. Adults pay three Euro €4,50 and children (3 to 15 years). The system is disabled.

  • We were there this summer after long time again and wanted to see the birds fly, unfortunately was informed us at the entrance or on the Web page that it failed that day (it was not due to the weather and we were also not the only ones who complained that). There are very regular and large enclosures and the animals seem to feel comfortable. Admission is rather expensive.
