The Hidden Kingdom - Visit The FEZ Bees
Sun 11th June 2023, 11am to 1pm
Recommended for everyone aged 6 and above
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.
