The highest located bird of prey station in all of Europe is located in the Zillertal valley and offers flight demonstrations at 2,000 m asl.
On the Ahorn mountain, easily accessible from Mayrhofen by the Ahornbahn cable car, the Eagle’s Stage Ahorn (Adlerbühne Ahorn) can be found. Here the kings of the air rise into the sky above the heads of the visitors and show elegant flight and hunting manoeuvres.
Eagle, owl, buzzard, falcon and co. live on the Ahorn and are cared for by the falconers. During the flight demonstrations the falconers tell interesting details about the beautiful animals. The access is barrier-free. A new arranged path proceeds from the mountain station of the Ahornbahn cable car to the Eagle’s Stage (about 10 minutes to walk) and offers further information.
So a nice walking tour in the mountains of the Zillertal valley can be combined with this unforgettable experience. Once a week there is also an adventure day on offer where you can take a glimpse behind the scenes. The perfect excursion destination for a nice family day!
