Open to the public since 2006, the BIORAMA-Projekt is a private initiative from Sarah Phillips and Richard Hurding. 

It is conceived as a GATEWAY to the UNESCO Biosphere Schorfheide-Chorin, Brandenburg, North Germany.

Our wider aim is to provide a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY where visitors can experience eco-tourism and cultural offers which are focused on demonstrating the importance of the natural environment in general and of the Biosphere in particular.

We welcome individuals and groups of visitors and by special arrangement our site is offered for private visits/events outside of our opening hours for groups of 10 people or more.

The running costs of the BIORAMA-Projekt are entirely funded by sales of entrance tickets and merchandise.
