Falconer

Valkenier 850 breed

Please feel welcome to visit the falconer in the tent on the Bastion, where you can watch the beautiful birds of prey from close up. The faconer will tell you all about falconry in the medieval times. It was during a falcon hunt that noblemen kidnapped Floris V, the count who built Muiderslot Castle.

The falconer is present at the following times.

In April, May, June, September and October:

Tuesday to Friday: 10.00 – 16.00
Saturday and Sunday: 12.30 – 16.30

In July and August:

Tuesday to Friday: 11.00 – 16.00
Saturday and Sunday: 12.30 – 16.30

From May to September there are demonstrations of the birds of prey in flight on Wednesday and Saturday afternoon (subject to the weather).
