discovering the world’s birds of prey
In Alsace, close to Haut-Koenigsbourg and the Wine road, stand the ruins of the medieval castle of Kintzheim. Since 1968, this site has been given over to birds of prey.
Thanks to its flying displays, the Volerie des Aigles offers a unique opportunity to admire - in the sky or just a few centimetres away - the finest and largest birds of prey in the world!
By reaching the hearts of its visitors, the Volerie hopes to make them better acquainted with birds of prey and thus more aware of the importance of maintaining biodiversity and species conservation.
