Article for listening

The Pollinator Pathmaker LAS Edition has been in bloom on the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin’s forecourt since June 2023. Covering an area of 722 square metres, more than 7,000 plants of 80 different species now provide a variety of food for pollinating insects. Pollinating insects in Berlin include butterflies, moths, beetles, wasps and even flies. The artwork, created by artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, is a response to the alarming decline of pollinating insects, which are essential for the reproduction of many plants and the survival of ecosystems.

During the summer of 2023, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin will host an interactive educational programme with various formats aiming to inspire young people to understand the crucial role that pollinators play in the environment, raising awareness for their needs.

Workshops and Guided Tours

The fascinating world of pollinators

On the backdrop of the Pollinator Pathmaker LAS edition, the Museum für Naturkunde invites families and children to a 3-hour workshop to learn all about insects in the city, pollination and bee-friendly gardens.

Which bees are there in Berlin? What does pollen actually look like? Why is survival increasingly difficult for insects and what can Humans do about it? The Museum für Naturkunde will explore this and more together with you during the workshop - the fascinating world of pollinators.
