Eagle's Stage Ahorn

Birds of prey up close

When as many as 800 spectators hold their breath at the same time, you can really feel the excitement at the Eagle’s Stage Ahorn in Mayrhofen im Zillertal. That’s where the kings of the sky hover just inches above the heads of spectators before diving down to grab some bait, providing for some unforgettable moments at 2,000 meters above sea level. Accompanied by his wife Waltraud, Didi Wechselberger, manager of the highest-altitude Birds of Prey station in Europe, lets you experience these aerial acrobats up close and in action. 

During the one-hour Birds of Prey Show you will get to observe eagles, owls, buzzards, falcons, and other majestic birds up close, marvel at their spectacular aerial acrobatics, and learn all about their skills and habits from our two falconers. The Eagle’s Stage Ahorn with its Birds of Prey Show is a truly fascinating highlight and a must-see attraction of any visit to Mayrhofen in the summer!
