A three generational fun day in the cold and sleeting winter time. A family pass for 4 and 2 adults, no senior discounts. I don't remember the exact amount but definitely a treat for anyone interested in wildlife and rainforest plants. The highlight for the 5 and 3 year olds was the butterfly house with butterflies resting on stationary shoulders... More

Great to walk around again. The plants, flowers and wildlife are always kept in such wonderful condition. The butterfly house was so full of life with lots to see. Well worth a visit.

If you really like nature & you ever been in a jungle it's a good alternative. The vegetation is nice & all the small animals give you a good & quick overview about the jungle. I definitely can recommend the Biosphare.

When you visit Potsdam it's mostly about castles or the movie park, but hardly anybody knows about the biosphere! It's for the whole family as well as for a romantic walk for couples! You walk through a jungle and it's nice and warm. You can see huge plants, wonderful flowers, all kind of little colorful birds flying around free. Watch... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More
