Falconry Backstage - Ascent and descent, Falconry Backstage and Birds of Prey Show

Every Wednesday from June to October you have the unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Europe’s highest-altitude birds of prey station. Accompanied by our falconers, you will enjoy a very special day with our majestic birds.

For two hours in the morning, you will learn all the important facts about the Eagle’s Stage Ahorn, the profession of a falconer, and the fascinating features of the animals. You will also join the falconers as they feed and care for the birds and you will be given plenty of useful information about the protection of animals and the preservation of nature in the Alps.

And then, at 2:00 p.m., well prepared with all of your background knowledge and from the best seats in the house, you can finally enjoy the moment you’ve been waiting for, the Birds of Prey Show.
