More about the Uhuburg name:
Uhuburg is a captivating name derived from the mighty Eurasian Owl, which takes flight as the largest owl in the world. This German-named owl, or Uhu, soars with regal grace as its English translation lands upon the majestic moniker of "Eagle Owl." Embodied in the term "Burg," meaning castle in German, Uhuburg stands tall, embodying the essence of an awe-inspiring fortress.
The castle is also available for special events and photos. They are closed the weekend of June 10 but will reopen the weekend following.
