The abandoned castles of Europe are magnificent markers of the continent's tempestuous history. But where they once hosted royalty, these empty, hulking structures are now overtaken by the wildlife and rich natural environments flourishing around them. From peregrine falcons ruling the bell towers of Germany's Heidelberg Castle, to exotic amphibians thriving in the spring-fed fountains of Spain's iconic Alhambra, explore the curious history of these imposing European structures and the creatures that call them home.
Part 1: Heidelberg: Secrets in Stone
Standing deep in the German countryside for over 500 years, Heidelberg Castle was once home to the country's first university and is now part of the surrounding ecosystem. From toads swimming in the grounds' fountains to peregrine falcons nesting in the bell tower, tour a medieval mausoleum steeped in nature.

Part 2: Carcassonne: the Realm of the Owl
North of the Pyrenees stands the ancient Carcassonne, a stone fortress that's faced sieges, endured the brutality of the Spanish Inquisition, and thrived as a center of wealth during the salt trade a millennia ago. Today, it’s a protected sanctuary and an avian paradise for robust avocets, exotic flamingos, and more.

Part 3: Predjama: Hidden Caves of Slovenia
Predjama Castle is carved into the heart of a Slovenian mountain and nestled among stunning natural attractions, including the eerie Postojna Caves and Lake Cerknica–Europe's largest intermittent lake. Brown bears, aquatic salamanders known as olms, and more thrive in the shadow of this imposing fortress.

Part 4: Alhambra: the Oasis in the Desert
In the sun-baked plains of southern Spain, between Europe's only desert and the mighty Sierra Nevada, lies Alhambra, a magnificent Moorish palace of lush gardens and shimmering fountains. Join us on a sweeping tour of the wildlife within, including Iberian frogs, white-bellied hedgehogs, and more.

Part 5: Neuschwanstein: the False Paradise
The landscape surrounding Neuschwanstein Castle is famous for its rugged peaks, deep gorges, and river valleys packed with wildlife. Alpine ibex are at home on the surrounding tricky slopes, while golden eagles patrol the skies above. Embark on a rich journey through the human and natural history of these medieval grounds.
