Watch and listen, touch and try out. On the four floors of the Noctalis Exhibition, visitors Watch and listen, touch and try out. On the four floors of the Noctalis Exhibition, visitors may use all their senses to discover the fascinating world of bats. It is dark in Noctalis: explore an artificial cave with your flashlight or stroll through the night forest with its mysterious sounds.

In the Noctarium, our visitors can watch up to one hundred tropical bats fly about and do their acrobatic flight maneuvers or feed on their favourite food, bananas – a wonderful experience the whole family will never forget.
Groups may explore the Noctalis Exhibition on their own or join a guided tour. Please find out about our varied program.

Kalkberg Cave Expedition
Every year, more than 20000 bats come to the Segeberg cave for hibernation. From April to September we offer guided expeditions into the mysterious world underground.
