The House for Man and Nature in Lübbenau is one of three visitor information centres of the Spreewald Biosphere Reserve. In the old school building of the city of Lübbenau the visitor can look "behind the scenes", and even the youngest ones are remembered: The bullfrog Bully, created in the style of a mythical figure of the Spreewald, guides them through the exhibitions in a child-friendly way.

Together with the bullfrog Bully, big and small discover the secrets of the Spreewald. Walk through our exhibition with its three interactive adventure worlds and get to know the unique flowing landscape of the Spreewald.

Discover the Spreewald habitat and its animal and human inhabitants. Listen to the stories of an old tree or explore a beaver cave. Simulate the effects of the flooding or dive on the
lawn into the atmosphere of the old alluvial forests. In the walk-in barn the visitor gets an appetite for Spreewald delicacies. Afterwards you can review your impressions in our "cinema".

Admission is free.
