  • The biosphere, we visited on a Sunday morning. We wondered, that so little was going on, but to have the tropical world for us almost alone were pleased. This paradise of plants is based in a large hall of the former Federal garden show. In addition to the many tropical plants, live animals (especially birds and reptiles) in the biosphere. The round trip will start on a small pond with waterfall, turtles and a "geyser", which you can get to the eruption by pumping. On numerous information panels, you can learn many interesting facts about the Habitat and the inhabitants of the tropics. In the Butterfly House, is the fascinating insects at the fluttering around admiring. A cafe is located on the upper floor and at the end of circular a souvenir shop. The price of admission €11,50 (Status: August 2017) felt we as something too high, otherwise you can however definitely recommend the biosphere.

  • Truly beautiful, it's really worth to go and visit this place. In particular the Butterfly House where they are free and you can watch it in all their glory. My son was amazed!

  • We have visited the biosphere on a quiet Sunday in August, our two-year son was thrilled: small watercourses, iguanas, snakes, mice. Enough room for the stroller and much to be touched. We adults enjoyed the short walk through the different layers of the rainforest along the way well prepared information, vanilla and pepper plants to watching and much more. At the end of a Café with delicious snacks. Exotic sitting overlooking the Koi pond. It really liked us and we would find a pity if the biosphere would have to close. She has a well thought-out concept. Just for kids, it is a great place to learn!

  • Wonderful architecture and tropical plants. What else could you ask for? It would be a shame if this was closed! The staff was really nice and helpful (especially the guy in the butterfly garden was super into his job and explained everything to the guests). We were also sitting at the koi pond, enjoying some refreshments, just chilling out and taking photos. Overall great day and experience. If you want to get away from all the Berlin buzz...this is the place for you!
  • Fantastic place, well organised, very interesting for children, families and seniors. Perception of a rainforest and relaxing atmosphere are warranted. There are cafe and restaurant. Bought an annual ticket for the whole family. The city of Potsdam wants to close it, the reason is that it works in deficit. I think this place must be KEPT!!! Petitions to keep it are ongoing.
  • I felt like I was in the rainforest! My skin loved it there. Lots of great info about the environment!
  • Great experience for a family trip. The entrance price feels a bit high, but as soon as you are in the building you know that you actually get value for your money.
  • We arrived at 16:50 and everything was already locked even if the last entry is at 17:30. We started the tour and it was really awesome, it really seemed to be a rainforest, it was really suggestive! The place has some interactive activities to play and I really loved the butterflies' house, one of the most amazing things! Surely worth a visit if you're paying some time in Potsdam!
