Falconer on the castle square

Falconer on the castle square

Start date: July 24, 2024 13:00 - 16:00

To a castle belongs a falconer! In good weather, house falconer Birdlive will take you through the history of falconry in the Netherlands and its magnificent birds of prey. You can admire the majestic birds up close and maybe even see them fly.

Attention! The raptor program is outdoors and free to attend, but will only take place if weather permits. Want to make sure the falconer will be there on the day you want to come? Then check this site on the day before you head out the door.

Museum tickets


In the Middle Ages, every self-respecting castle had a falconer. Only a free man was allowed to keep birds of prey, so it was also a status symbol. House falconer Birdlive regularly gives workshops on and demonstrations with various birds of prey, both indoors and outdoors, during school vacations.

Summer vacation 2024

Weather permitting, the falconer will be at the castle square every Wednesday afternoon this summer from July 17 to August 28. If you also want to visit the museum, you can book your tickets in advance online.
