“More for children than adults”
Review of Biosphere Potsdam

Biosphere Potsdam
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 September 2016

Had a pleasant day here with a friend but found the place is more for the kids than adults but was still worth the visit, it is very educational and well set out and maintained , whilst alot of ithe nformation is in English t's a pity some of it is not. The entry charges are reasonable and there are lockers available if you don't want to carry your bags. Being what it is, it is quite a humid environment so don't over dress. Id say it you have kids under ten it would be great but id say teenages would be bored

Hello and thank you so much for the review!

We are very happy to hear, that you like the visit in the tropical world.
Indeed, the Biosphere is especially for children and families very interesting. But also couples or seniors can have lots of fun there and discover the beauty of the nature. We would be glad, if we could welcome you again. You just have to try out our Café Tropencamp or maybe take a look at our restaurant menu.
We also offer informative guided tours (in English), where you can learn more about the tropical world and men's influence on it. We hope to see you soon again in our tropical paradise!

Sincerely,
Biosphere-Team

A well-designed bio-dome, this attraction features a number of different creatures as well as plenty of hands-on activities that are great for both children and adults alike. Great effort is put into showcasing how much we can learn from our environment as well as efforts to take in preserving it. Presentations are in both German and English. The facility also has a cafe with a large, comfortable outdoor seating area as well as a restaurant.

Although we don't have kids, but we are big kids ourselves, we went to this tropical place, while it was raining. It is a feel good place, because it's warm inside and you can observe a lot of animals. Personally, I wished it was bigger, because I can't get enough of this kind of places. There are reptiles, snakes, birds, butterflies,... We used the Berlin Welcome Card to receive a discount.

Lots to learn about our environment and very well done for kids! They especially offer birthday celebrations for kids. Tropical paradise with all kinds of animals. Beautiful aquariums, too! They have a beautiful butterfly house, lots of tropical plants, fake thunder&lightning with rain and a cafe. Enjoy! It's a must when you visit Potsdam!

If you like gardens then this is worth visiting. Very similar to the Amazon dome at the Eden project, a little smaller though but better execution. Good use of water and the koi indoor pond on the cafe level is stunning. The cafe was closed when we visited but we had a excellent meal in the restaurant. Given you only need an hour here and it's a few tram stops out of the city centre it probably best to combine it with lunch stop, the currywurst is superb.
