A Visit to the Biosphere Potsdam

I am always looking for new things to do in and around Berlin so immediately grabbed a voucher for the Biosphere Potsdam when one popped up a couple of months ago. I finally managed to go there recently and wanted to share my pictures with you.

I went on a day when it was 37 degrees in the city to the climatized temperature in there was a blessing (it was two weeks ago and I still haven’t gotten over that heat). It took me approximately one hour and a half to walk around the biosphere, without any guided tour or equipment, and I think that was enough. There were many interesting animals housed here from snakes to lizards to tortoise and thankfully very few were hidden behind the plants.

Standing by the waterfall made for a refreshing break.

There was also a butterfly house which was my favourite.

I initially thought that this was a leaf but it was just a really cool butterfly!

A pathway with loads of amazing plants led from animal to animal.

The biosphere also has a cafe if you fancy taking a rest, and a pretty cool gift shop. Admittedly, I wasn’t very excited about this place. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t blow me away. Perhaps if I hadn’t seen the biosphere in Leipzig Zoo already, I would have liked it a lot more. Anyway, it was still a pleasant way to pass some time and I recommend heading there if my pictures look like your kind of thing.
