The Hidden Kingdom

Visit the FEZ bees

Together with the Köpenick Beekeeping Club (Köpenicker Imkerverein) we invite you to take a fascinating glance into the life of the Wuhlheide's honey bees. Thanks to the viewing windows, you can see into the various bee houses and observe just how hard the colonies work. Can you spot the queen among the diligent drones? We'll also be harvesting honey and procuring beeswax. If you feel like lending a hand, then we'll be glad of the help. You may also prefer to stand back and wait until the honey is ready for tasting and, if you enjoy the taste, perhaps buying a jar or two from the beekeepers. We're looking forward to showing you how important bees are to this city and the environment in general.

From Grain to Bread and from Fish to Tomato

Interactive workshop for families

Bread is an essential component of diets throughout the whole world. It's healthy and contains important nutrients and fibres. What tyes of grain do you know? How are grains cultivated and processed?
In this workshop, participants will travel with the ingredients from their initial growth to freshly baked bread. After discovering more about the harvesting process, everyone will create their own bread product, with a variety of herbs from the FEZ garden if they so wish.
Plump and juicy tomatoes and huge fish. What is the connection there? The answer is tomato fish. Pardon? What are tomato fish? While the bread is baking in the clay ovens, our participants will head off to the Mini Rainforest on our Eco Island. There, they'll discover our so-called aquaponics system which demonstrates how we could sustainably produce food in the future.
