They are elegant, tenacious, quick as lightning, and now can be observed at Weissenhäuser Strand. Do you know who we are talking about? Soon large aviaries holding about 20 birds will be constructed near the WaWaCo lift and Falconry Walter will become a one-of-a-kind attraction at the Holiday and Resort Park Weissenhäuser Strand. The falconry is managed by Timo Walter, who has been working as a falconer full time since 2003.
Experience breath-taking shows held several times each day or participate in our falconer workshops. Even team-building workshops, photo shoots, as well as special flight shows on birthdays or for corporate events are offered. A truly unique highlight during weddings is the ring ceremony performed by specially trained falcons and owls. In addition to the falconry, special offers for kindergartens and schools are also available.
Under the slogan “The green classroom” participants can build insect hotels, nesting aids for bats, or incubators for birds.
In 2010, the falconry was declared an intangible cultural heritage and focuses on the partnership between humans and birds. Timo Walter hopes to bring the topics of environmental and animal protection closer to guests and visitors at Weissenhäuser Strand. For this reason, the installation will also serve as a refuge for birds of prey. He wants to increase the awareness for the environment. Based on the unique flora and fauna, the area is practically suited for this. This is confirmed by the fact that the European sea eagle has been nesting along the wonderful Baltic Sea coast for many years.
