Research Station

Research station

As close as you can get to real jungle

When you enter the St. Martins Research Station you are confronted by a unique and fascinating world. Plants hang from the ceiling, insects are gigantic and quite tame, frogs have what look like coral fingers and there are more fish swimming in the aquarium than you could ever count.

150 m² stand ready to be discovered - so get pottering around, trying out and laughing. And right next to it there's a small "Zoo School", where you can experience the wonders of nature first-hand.

 

DISCOVER THE PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS:

 

TIP: Book your time at the research station ahead of time to be sure of getting a spot.

Within the programmes for which payment must be made, children are supervised for the full duration of the programme by our qualified environment and zoo education experts. Parents do not need to be in attendance during the programme.  
In our Workshop at the Research Station parents have the opportunity to get creative together with their children.
