World Nature

The diversity of life from the middle of the arctic ice to the African savannah and the exotic life forms of Australia.

Life’s ability to adapt to a myriad of conditions is breath-taking. The distance between the poles and the equator is 10 000 kilometres. On that route the cold, harsh arctic landscapes change through many climatic zones into tropical rainforests teeming with life.

World Nature fills the exhibition halls (of the second floor) with miracles of biodiversity from all over the world. You can dive into the world of the sea creatures, see bears on a fishing trip, and take a break on the night-time savannah under the African stars. After a short rest you might be ready to jump along with the kangaroos in the Australian eucalyptus forest…
