The Wappenschmiede Centre for Nature Experience, which is just a few metres above the Biosphere House, is managed by the Society for Nature Conservation and Ornithology in Rhineland-Palatinate (GNOR). The centre provides overnight accommodations with 40 beds and educational activities for groups. Its offers include excursions themed on water, wildcats, and the Middle Ages. The Wappenschmiede also happens to be the Rhineland-Palatinate centre for beavers. There, a small exhibition dedicated to beavers give you information about their characteristics.
In the summer, a Biosphere shop located in the old Wappenschmiede area sells agricultural and handcrafted products from the region. It includes an interactive exhibition about wildcats.
