Waste of time and money for me, but enjoyed for the novelty by my 4 year old (she didn't have to pay for it). For the price it was very disappointing and rather a 'rip-off' as far as value goes. Another greenhouse with a few...More

The Biosphere is an amazing place to visit if you are into rainforests, animals and nature. The warm hall, the birds and butterflies and the animated thunderstorms give you an amazing impression on wildlife in the tropical areas. Plan at least 3h for your stay.

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.
