Tour parts of the castle for a glimpse into Baker's intriguing life, walk through the bucolic gardens, or take in a Birds of Prey show that features some of the best fliers in the castle's falconry.

Superbe château à visiter en famille. Le spectacle de vol de rapace est vraiment magnifique. Les fauconniers sont vraiment des passionnés avec beaucoup d'humour. La démonstration de vol est captivante... more »Beautiful castle to visit with your family. The raptor flying show is really beautiful. Falconers are truly passionate with a lot of humor. The flight demonstration is captivating. The exteriors of the castle (facade, garden, courtyards...) are magnificent. we have a very nice view of the valley. Inside, the visit with the audioguide is full of emotion: we discovered the life of Josephine Becker. The collection is very rich and very well highlighted. It feels like we're going to meet Josephine Becker and her Rainbow tribe at the turn of a room.
Garden ok. Nothing special other than the chateau in the background. Ruined by modern stainless steel water courses that are designed to be then center of attention. About as attractive as a 1970s council estate in the middle of a medieval village. Yuck. Birds of prey cages are saddening. A bald eagle on a 1 meter leash, continually facing the wall 5 inches away. So sad. Owls are locked in small sheds no bigger than the bathrooms inside the chateau. The house and audio guide are good.
Magnificent and show of raptors to see
