Why not Visit the Exhibition With a Guide?
How do bats find their way in the dark? What happens during the hibernation period? Why is there no need to be afraid of real vampires? At Noctalis you will find the answers to these questions, presented in a fascinating and entertaining way.
As the exhibition is self-explanatory you can book your tour with or without a guide.
On the guided tour our bat experts will give you vivid explanations of the special skills of bats and present the Noctalis highlights. During the tour there will be several opportunities for exploring special areas on your own. The tour through Noctalis lasts one and a half hours.
Segeberg Kalkberg Cave - Expedition Underground
Explore the mysterious world of Segeberg’s Kalkberg Cave. Witness bizarre rock formations, strange shadows, and – if you’re lucky – live bats. Our cave guides lead the way through the only show cave in Schleswig-Holstein. With their intriguing stories about the geology and history of the caves, about a species of cave beetles found only here in Bad Segeberg, and about the bats that spend their winters here, they turn the tour of the cave into an extraordinary experience.
A cave tour last about 35 minutes and can be done from April to September.
Bat Excursion – Night Walk into the World of Bats
The journey into the world of bats begins at night break. Equipped with special bat detectors, students led by a member of the Noctalis team explore the vicinity looking for native bats on their nightly hunt for insects. With competent guidance it is easy to make the bat calls audible. The excursion lasts between 1,5 and 2 hours and can be done from April to September.
Studying Geology While Smoothing Stones
How did Segeberg’s Kalkberg originate? Is it really a „mount of lime“ as the name says? What part did rock-salt play in the process? How was the Kalkberg Cave formed? Get clear answers to all your questions about the geology of the Kalkberg. While smoothing and polishing stones, school parties may discover that anhydrite and gypsum are much more beautiful than they imagined them to be! The finished stones may be taken home as a souvenir. This feature lasting about one hour is suited for all ages.
