Visitors can find an exhibition about the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Schaalsee in the PAHLHUUS. On two floors you get exciting insights into and on the Schaalsee.

The PAHLHUUS is the information centre of the Schaalsee UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and at the same time the location of the Schaalsee-Elbe Biosphere Reserve Office. In the modern information centre in Zarrentin, visitors can learn about the area's environmental features and tourist offers, as well as rent bicycles.

Not only a tunnel of life, a digital picture book and a visual dive in the Schaalsee await you in the nature exhibition, but also an astronaut.
What does this have to do with a biosphere reserve? Take a look for yourself! We look forward to your visit!
