Plan your visit with the free fly bird show. Great to view all the birds of prey at close range. Find a place in the center area of the seats. For some international guests, it's only in German. But it was great.

Inspiring and pulse raising, just to sit on benches and watch the raptors fly in and over your heads, feel the beat of wings so near. All well supervised, of course. Watch the birds, all kinds, feed and fly.

Free flight of large birds of prey. Very knowledgeable staff. Clean facilities, and not costly at all. Great for young people to learn about these kings of the bird world.

I visited with my sister and mother. It was a wonderful day. The birds are either in large show cages or tethered in the open. Although the show is in German, the experience of buzzards and Hawks flying low over your head and vultures wandering around your feet is quite an experience. I have been three times and enjoyed every... More

The Adlerwarte has many different raptors (greifvögel), very interesting to see them so close. But the best is to attend the show- best on clear days-, where a falconer lets different raports fly away and they come back in high speed, flying just over your head, automatically you stoop.

A very cool place to visit. Especially if you enjoy birds! Information sheets available in English for non-German speakers.

We'd been a couple of times before, but this show put previous ones in the shade. For a start; we didn't realise it was the last show of the year, and they let everyone in free (bonus). Even still; it would only have been 6 euros each I think. The caged birds have plenty of space, with the exception of... More

I had heard a little about Adlerwarte Berlebeck but it really wasn't close to anything else we were planning to visit on our vacation plus the weather wasn't too great so I almost didn't go - what a mistake that would have been because this place is absolutely amazing. I really enjoy animals and have been to a LOT of... More

Watched their "show" where you see the birds right in front of you (like the Bald Eagle three inches away from my face-awesome!) which was funny and educating. Afterwards we walked around and looked at the birds. You'll find information about every species on little signs. It is not very big, overall you will probably be done in 60-90 minutes.... More

The Adlerwarte Berlebeck is without doubt the premium site in Europe to see birds of prey. They range from Condors to the Smallest Owl, all flown by specially trained handlers who in some cases have raised the birds from hatchlings. The birds are taught to respond to the handlers' calls, and are also trained to fly directly overhead the spectators,... More
