Maus Castle

Construction on Maus Castle (also once known as Burg Thurnberg ) was started between 1353 and 1357 by arch bishop Boemund II to protect his newly acquired territory and was finally completed by his successor Kuno II von Falkenstein around 1388.The castle sometimes served as the residence of these first two owners.The castle was never destroyed and was sold in 1806 to Friedrich Habel.

It was renovated (1900-1906), care being taken to preserve the original appearance.

To-day Burg Maus is a reserve for eagles and falcons.Tours are given from the end of March until the beginning of October where you can learn about the birds and watch spectacular displays of their prowess in the air.
