Feathers are the characteristic feature of birds and a prerequisite for feathered flight. Yet not all feathers are used for flying: their functions are diverse, and their repertoire of forms and colours is inexhaustible.
From the feather of the ancient bird Archaeopteryx through to the beauty of Lady Amherst‘s pheasant — ‘Federflug’ focuses on the unique aesthetics of feathers, and highlights what is worth knowing about the delicate coat of our feathered friends.

We recommend this online documentation of the 2011/2012 special exhibit: Feathered Flight — 150 years of Archaeopteryx
