Krabbelnde Bewohner im Insektarium

Living museum - the insectarium

Watch living leafcutter ants at their diligent work. Observe the busy honey bees in their crystalline hive. Let the beauty of the shiny butterflies and the many different kinds of well hidden ghost insects mesmerize you. Enjoy the opportunity to get a close look at tarantulas, scorpions and crabs, which − together with the insects − make up the family of the arthropods.

Insects are unequalled in their diversity and bizarre beauty. With about one million known species they make up four fifths of the known wildlife and can be found nearly everywhere. The insectariums give you the opportunity of getting to know these interesting and very impotant creatures.
