THE BIOTOPIA LAB

PLAN YOUR WALK-IN VISIT OR PRE-REGISTER
The BIOTOPIA Lab is open for visitors as long as regulations allow (rules for museums and cultural institutions). Short-term changes are possible depending on the current infection levels. You can visit the Lab spontaneously during a visit to the Botanical Gardens or pre-reserve your slot online, in which case your reservation gets you free access to the Botanical Gardens.
As an interim platform, the BIOTOPIA Lab offers a taste of BIOTOPIA, its vision and values. It is a dynamic exhibition space, an event platform and an experimental workshop all at the interface of science, art, design and culture. At the same time, the BIOTOPIA Lab offers an insight into the development process of the new museum.
With workshops, raised garden beds, an experimental space, changing mystery objects and special exhibitions as well as interdisciplinary events, it arouses curiosity about the topics of BIOTOPIA and invites people to engage with the current status of project.
Find out more about our current program and get a look behind the scenes of the BIOTOPIA Lab, be sure to follow our social media channels.
Visitors of the BIOTOPIA Lab do not have to pay the entrance fee to the Botanical Garden if they present their free registration, as we assume that you will come directly to the Lab. If you want to enjoy the Botanical Garden before or after your Lab visit, please buy a ticket. Depending on the Corona rules, this is only possible until the day before and only online - please see the Botanical Garden's page for more information.
Friday: 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The drop in activities will initially only take place on weekends and holidays. During school vacations, extended opening hours apply in some cases.
You can visit the Lab spontaneously during a visit to the Botanical Gardens or pre-register your slot online, in which case your registration gets you free access to the Botanical Gardens. Reservation by phone or email is not possible.
The BIOTOPIA Lab is only open when museums are open (depending on the current incidence number).
With an exciting hands-on program, the BIOTOPIA Lab can also be experienced at home. Instructions, experiments and do-it-yourself concepts bring "hands-on science" into your own four walls. BIOTOPIA Lab@Home awakens interest in scientific relationships and provides inspiration for young and old. It gives a taste of the activities in the BIOTOPIA Lab - from bottle gardens or growing your own mushrooms to isolating DNA from vegetables or fruit.
