The Penguin Experience

Imagine watching penguins gracefully glide underwater through a crystal-clear window. At Spreewelten, this dream becomes a reality! The park is home to a colony of South African penguins, and visitors can observe them up close as they dive, swim, and play through a gigantic window. There are also regular feeding times when visitors can watch the penguins being fed and swimming around or even participate in the feeding (for a fee, only for 6+ years old). It is also possible to book a guided tour where you can meet the penguins up close.

The penguin experience is visible from the outside and is a truly unique. However, keep in mind that the penguins won’t always be visible as they also have an area away from visitors. But even if the penguins aren’t out, there is plenty to do. The inside area also houses a small penguin themed playground to entertain your kids while you patiently wait for the penguins to appear!

The outdoor pools at Spreewelten Bad offer a fantastic opportunity for families to swim just inches away from these charismatic birds. Your kids will never forget the thrill of diving into the water while penguins dart past them, separated only by a clear barrier.
