Accessibility in the Biosphere Potsdam

The Biosphere Potsdam offers a tropical experience with many highlights that can be experienced with all senses for all of our guests. The different parts of our exhibitions can be accessed without limitations by all our guests. Guests with disabilities can learn a lot of new things using the different interactive stations of our exhibitions. There are many things in the Biosphere Potsdam that cannot be discovered at first glance, therefore our guests can book themed guided tours and workshops.
