Travel 60min / Activity 2-4h
What today resembles the remnants of a medieval castle has been meticulously hand-constructed over many years to become a sanctuary for more than 700 colourful birds, parrots and cockatoos. The dreamy and playful natural stone setting creates an ideal environment for families and couples, for photographers and animal enthusiasts. It is not often that one is given the chance to experience these colourful birds at close range.
Parrots are both inquisitive and intelligent. They are capable of developing close bonds with humans, usually react when being spoken to, and many of them will even respond with words or phrases. The Vogelburg is good fun for visitors of all ages and for many has earned an excellent reputation as a sanctuary for these sensitive birds when they are in need.
Stroll along the natural stone footpaths and experience the rustic charm of hand-crafted masonry. Experience the cleverness of the magnificent birds in their housings, many of which are open for visitors to walk inside. With your visit you not only support the care and feeding of the animals but also collect some unforgettable memories for yourself.
