In the middle of the old town center of Oetz, the tower museum is easy to find due to its architecture. in the Middle Ages, the “tower” of a landed noble family served as a residence in the middle of the settlement of farms. In modern times it was the administrative seat of the goods of the Frauenchiemsee monastery in the Ötztal. After many decades of diverse use by the municipality of Oetz, the building was thoroughly renovated and finally opened in 2004 as a museum. Shortly afterwards, the Tower Museum received the 2004 Tyrolean Museum Prize.
Covering a total area of 5000 m², the park can be found in the foothills of Stuibenfall, Tirol's biggest waterfall, and close to the Ötzi Village. 30 animals and 15 bird of prey species can be admired - among them vultures, eagles, kites, owls, buzzards and falcons. The spectacular bird shows take place in the huge open-air arena with 300 seats. A special theme walking trail on the history of falconry and a falconry shop add to a great day in the splendid Birds of Prey Park which is accessible for wheelchair users.DOGS:Dogs are allowed in the entire area.
