Breisach (formerly called Altbreisach) is a town with around 16,500 inhabitants, situated along the Rhine in the Rhine Valley, in the district Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, about halfway between Freiburg and Colmar—20 kilometers away from each—and about 60 kilometers north of Basel near Kaiserstuhl.
A bridge leads over the Rhine to Neuf-Brisach, Alsace.
If you're stuck for something to do on a Sunday afternoon AND you have access to a car, then why not try the Falconry Nature Discovery Park in Tutschfelden-Herbolzheim and get up-close and personal with amazing examples of birds of prey.
Under new ownership since it's demise some years ago, the Falconry Nature Discovery Park was very much in it's early transformation and rebuilding phase as we visited in July 2012. Still, for a fantastic afternoon out for families with children the park does not disappoint.
The park is ran by a very friendly couple (Eva Hoffmann and Heinz Scheuch) who put on a falconry show for the guests. Opening at 14:00 each and every Sunday (until the end of August), guests can take a look around at the growing collection of birds of prey, many of which have been rescued, cared for and will be released to the wild in future.
At 15:00, the main show starts. Together with an assistant Falconer, the owner of the park (Heinz Scheuch) demonstrates each of the birds capabilities to the audience who remain sitted at the edge of a grass field as his Assistant addresses the audience verbally. One-by-one, the birds are brought out and taken along the seated audience, children may even stroke the more-tame examples. Then the birds are flown back and forth.
