By birds of prey that I have seen, well worth the admission. It does help if you understand a bit of French, but if you put your hand up when others do, you may get to have a bird of prey land on a glove on your hand. If you are wearing a hat an owl may land on your head! Whatever else you will certainly have several close encounters with some wonderful birds of prey flying close by. My only warning is that the car park is a fairly long walk along an uneven forest path from the castle, so anyone with any infirmities will struggle.

We visited the place on a sunny day at noon and were very impressed by the huge birds flying so close to your head, as well as the owls and some other birds we've never seen before in live.
The place located up the hill in a beautifull Chateau (castle in a forest).
I didn't rate this place at the maximum rate only because the show is in French, but it's nevertheless very impressing.
Don't miss this place - it's a must if you are visiting Alsace or even at Europa Park.
The prices are 9.5 Euro for adult, 6 Euro for kids (5-14).
in the summer (14.7-20.8) they have 5 shows (11:30, 12:45, 14:00, 15:30, 17:00).

A tip for the owners of this place - combine live english explanations in the show. the english brochure you are giving at the entrance, which should explains what we gonna see in the show, is not effective.

When you enter the courtyard space where the birds will be flown from, there are wonderful views out over the wine road along the Vosges. The bird handlers are very good and there is always a chance to personally experience even the larger birds. Well worth a visit.

Here there is a wide collection of birds of prey: eagles, vultures, owls and a condor. Not only are they perched for close-up photos, but many of them take part in a flying display swooping low over the audience sitting in a circle. Lazy UK visitors expect to park close to the entrance to an attraction; here the approach is along a wooden forest path.
