Flashlight Adventure at the Biosphere Potsdam

When the day draws to a close and the sun slowly disappears behind the horizon, this means for most people and animals on our planet that they seek shelter in their homes. However, the darkness holds many secrets and the tropical rainforest also has some inhabitants that only become really active at night. But what actually happens in the jungle as soon as the sunlight disappears and night falls on the tropics?

The flashlight adventure at the Biosphäre Potsdam sheds light on this question! On selected dates, the Tropical Adventure World also opens in the evening hours during the dark season for brave guests.

Our Café Tropencamp is open for you on those days between 19:00 and 21:15. The souvenir store opens between 19:00 and 21:30.

During the nocturnal excursion to Potsdam's Tropical World, all guests young and old can explore the jungle on their own with the flashlights they have brought along and observe both nocturnal and diurnal animals.

At various stations in the tropical garden, guides explain exciting facts about butterflies and insects, you can see the world through a night vision device and discover fluorescent objects with a black light. The very brave may even dare to taste chocolate insects.

There is a possibility of overnight stay. More information on the website
