The Biosphere is an amazing place to visit if you are into rainforests, animals and nature. The warm hall, the birds and butterflies and the animated thunderstorms give you an amazing impression on wildlife in the tropical areas. Plan at least 3h for your stay.

If you really like nature & you ever been in a jungle it's a good alternative. The vegetation is nice & all the small animals give you a good & quick overview about the jungle. I definitely can recommend the Biosphare.
