CURRENT CORONA-REGULATIONS

We make every effort to communicate the corona regulations in force at the Lab as up to date as possible on our website. Nevertheless, please also inform yourself about the current regulations for museums. In the section "Contact & Opening Times" you can inform yourself about our current regulations:

HOLIDAY PROGRAM: CHRISTMAS 2021/22

During the 2021/22 Christmas vacations, BIOTOPIA Lab is expanding its offerings:

From January 3 to 9, we'll be open daily from 10 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., with our free vacation special program.

You can just drop by and join in without pre-registration!

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a program for larger groups, such as after-school groups, at this time. Please note that we can currently only welcome a limited number of people in the Lab at any one time.

Recommended for explorers of all ages!

This experience can also be easily combined with a visit to the Museum Mensch und Natur, which is only a 12-minute walk away.

Our Lab Pilots are happy to show you the exhibition areas of the BIOTOPIA Lab and invite you to exciting themed-days with great hands-on activities. You can find the program below. Don’t miss the chance to fly as a bird over Bavaria's landscapes with our virtual flight simulator Birdly.

Opening hours

Daily from 10 a.m. -4.30 p.m.

Our current Corona Rules apply to visits to the BIOTOPIA Lab: You can find out about them in the "Contact and Opening Times" section. There you will also find our hygiene concept.

Fly like a bird

With our virtual reality flight simulator "Birdly" you can fly over the most beautiful landscapes of Bavaria during the holiday week and become a bird.

Birdly can be tried out daily between 10 am and 4.30 pm during the holiday weeks, depending on availability. If there is a high demand, you may have to wait a little. We invite you to use this time to explore the other areas of the BIOTOPIA Lab!

To fly with the Birdly, the "wingspan" (fingertip to fingertip) must be at least 1.20m.

We look forward to a voluntary donation for the use of Birdly.

The BIOTOPIA Lab is  an interdisciplinary space that builds bridges between life and environmental sciences, art and design and society. We are planning small and larg events at which experts from different scientific, cultural and political backgrounds join the general public to explore, question and redesign our  relationshipwith the living world.

From panel discussions to hackathons to hybrid event formats - the Lab is an open invitation to everyone who is interested in a change of perspective. Creative collisions and cultural “clashes” also find a platform here. We look forward to collaborative event ideas according to the motto: "Do It With Others" (DIWO).
