The sturgeon at the Tropenhaus

Lili is visiting her friend the sturgeon, and you can accompany her. Where does the sturgeon live, what does he look like, and what does he like to eat? Lili goes in search of answers to all these questions. Afterwards, you can craft a great sturgeon present together to take home with you.

Date for 2020 to follow

Our animals at the Tropenhaus

Lili is visiting her animal friends in the tropical garden. Together you can discover the Silkie chickens, king quail and turtles. Why don’t the Silkie chickens fly away, and how old is Rodrigues? Leave a lasting impression with your artistic contributions to the menagerie.

The closing date for registration is 22 May 2019.

Tropical fruits at the Tropenhaus

Do you know where and how bananas grow? Why are bananas curved and what do other tropical fruit actually taste like? You will find out all of the above on a tour of the tropical garden. You will then be allowed to “cultivate” your own plant and take it home with you.

The closing date for registration is 28 August 2019.

Turtle wash and weigh day

Three days a year, our turtles receive our special attention. In addition to being fed, they are washed, weighed and given a quick health check. We provide anyone interested, whether adult or child, with an unforgettable and informative experience. Watch the keepers at their work and learn interesting facts about the characteristics of these lovable animals.

No registration required.

Magic potion 

Magical plants, witches’ brews, jungle stories and legends: Lili will show you little aids against stomach ache, headache, flu, etc., simply applied with fruits, nuts and leaves from the tropical garden. Afterwards, you will blend your own witches’ tea together.

The closing date for registration is 27 November 2019
