The Bavarian state capital celebrates nature, culture and flowers from February 3rd to October 7th, 2023. After the nationwide sensational Faust Festival 2018, it is the second city-wide event in which large institutions, small associations, renowned cultural institutions and private initiatives offer an extensive program for eight months. Almost 500 events put Munich in a true rush of flowers. The BIOTOPIA Lab, together with the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg, the Gasteig Munich and the Kunsthalle Munich, initiates a cross-city, participatory event for Munich and the surrounding area throughout the seasons.
From February 14, 2023, the best pictures from the "Natur im Fokus" photo competition can be admired in a special exhibition in the Museum Mensch und Natur and at the same time go on tour through Bavaria in two other exhibition copies. This competition has been announced annually since 2007 and is supported jointly by the Museum Mensch und Natur, the Bayerische Staatsministerium für Umwelt und Verbraucherschutz and BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern.

Matching the BIOTOPIA Festival SENSE on October 1 and 2, 2022, our current installation revolves around the scent of extinct plants. The installation "Resurrecting the Sublime" by Christina Agapakis, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Sissel Tolaas allows visitors to smell extinct flowers that have been eradicated by colonial activities. The exhibition not only offers an unexpected glimpse into what has been lost, but also challenges us to reflect on our own actions....
The festival program is here! For an entire weekend, young and old are invited to Munich-Nymphenburg to discover the world of perception and experience cutting-edge science in an entertaining way.
BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern invites you to its BIOTOPIA Festival under the motto "SENSE - the Power of Perception" on October 1 and 2! Visitors can immerse themselves in the world of sensory perception of humans, animals and other species.
This year’s participation in the project is outstanding. Since the beginning of the year, more than 13,000 recordings from 46 countries have been uploaded – significantly more than in the last two years combined! Every single one of them helps to expand the collection database, and thus supports experts in their future research on biodiversity. BIOTOPIA and LBV say Thank You to all participants!
