  • We had a rainy day keeping us from Berlin Mitte but saving us from twiddling our thumbs. While one of the children was a reluctant participant at first he ended up really enjoying the exhibits. Great ...  more »
  • A beautiful Biosphere has taken it well. Plants and animals look healthy and well maintained. For children an experience there also know mediated through tropical forest is. There are animals in the Habitat although free, but it's not the mass. Just for kids, it's an experience. It should be noted not too thick to be attracted because it is a tropical House. Warm and muggy, just. A recurring place to the switch off and relax.

  • Interesting for a small expedition into the jungle, but unfortunately also a bit overrated and too expensive.

  • 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!
