WissensFluss — Explore nature with bat detector and torch


On this night hike into the world of Berlin’s bats you can listen to their ultrasonic calls with a detector and follow their hunt for insects. Afterwards, you can rediscover regionally lost species of the wetlands around Berlin and the Panke river with torches in the nocturnal Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
