Special Exhibition: Freedom to Roam – Animals in Migration

On endless migration are the wild animals which the nature photographer Florian Schulz has captured with his camera in the new show in the castle granary. The overwhelmingly beautiful large format photographs show cold resistant bears and musk oxen, swarms of snow geese in flight, and the grueling migrations of caribou in the American and Canadian Northwest.

Related displays treat fascinating facts about animal migration in Europe, as well as ecological needs and wildlife management in the Alps.

An exciting series of related events (in German) deepen our knowledge of specific themes such as the migration of amphibians or fishes as well as river ecology and habitat quality.

The special exhibition is shown until october 15th in the new granary hall accessible from the castle court.

The Hunting Dog - Ally and Friend

It was a brilliant trick of our ancestors – about 20,000 years ago, it occurred to people to tame wolves. In time, people began to make use of the traits of the wolf species. The dog, as a pet, came from the wolf in the wild. And so began the fascinating story of the friendship between people and dogs.

The exhibition "The Hunting Dog – Ally and Friend", explains how this close bonding between people and dogs emerged, which influence humankind has had on the evolution of the dog and how the partnership between dog and humans is lived out in the hunt today.
