The operators, Achim Köhler and Hardy Kempter, are dealing with Reptiles since 1985, especially with the snakes. As more species were added and other animal groups such as lizards, insects and arachnids were included in the collection, the idea matured, that they would open for the interested guest. 
On 28 April 2000, the exotarium Oberhof opened. Since then, the animal population as well as exhibition space is constantly expanding. On 1st May 2005, a new area was opened with seven aquariums. In August of the same year the Exotarium received the Zoo-approval after new EU directive. Thus, the exotarium Oberhof is the most modern and largest aquarium-terrarium-Zoo in central Germany.
After paying the entrance fee we se 10 terrariums for bird-eating spiders, followed by darter frogs and the strange lesser siren. Turning left we then see leopard tortoise and adjanced the bearded dragons. Turning left once more we see several snake species, like the gaboon viper and the lancehead. The last large terrariums are for water monitors, burmese python and rat snakes. The smal next room has 10 terrariums for insects as well as a larger one for the black agama. The last section is an aquarium section with 7 aquarium and a large terrarium with tortoises. In this room you among other see rainbow fish, cichlides and the arowana.
