The most beautiful tropical plants of the world can be seen in the Biosphäre Potsdam. You can discover and explore orchids, epiphytes, bromeliads and many other species of plants. With temperatures between 23°C and 28°C and a high air humidity of almost 80 %, there is an everlasting summer in the tropical hall.

Yet you can also experience the changes in the tropical daytime climate – there is an hourly thunderstorm and it rains over the forest pond.


Our rainforest is home to not only thousands of plants but also a variety of different animals.

Reptiles and amphibians crawl through branches in their terrarium, insects climb from twig to twig, and sometimes it’s hard to differentiate the insect from the plant.

Birds fly through the air in the tropical hall, sit in the treetops and chirp.

In the special exhibition “Aquasphäre” mudskippers hop through the mangrove woods and clownfish swim around their coral reefs.

Don’t miss out the butterfly house where you are surrounded by beautiful tropical butterflies.
