I took my 4 year old daughter here. It was nice. They have more than just butterflies. I really liked the nocturnal animal enclosure as I have never been to a zoo with such an exhibit. I like the idea of showing nocturnal animals in the dark. There is also a small petting zoo with goats. Though, we didn't see... More

My boyfriend and me went there for first time, it was very exciting! Beautiful butterflies, nice rain forest and the jungle where you saw the birds was cool as well, i was a bit scared when this big bird walked after me all time but i still liked it. The noc place where bats were flying was a bit uncomfortable,... More

Go now and then to see too happy about the beauty of butterflies. If one takes the time we discover also other animals.If you're in the area, so it is worth visiting for sure.

It's a very nice place, especially for kids. The tickets are quite expensive (18 CHF for adult). The place itself is not very big, but still worth visiting. Papiliorama is lovely, all butterflies are beautiful. Jungle trip is not impressive. Personally I loved the nocturama the most. To see and feel how bats are flying just above your head or... More

Went there on a Monday, it was packed with kids (field trips) and families. Had a good time with my girlfriend, learned a few things (explanations are not too scientific, also interesting and educative for the kids). Lots of bats in the "Nocturama". There are a few feeding times in the afternoon (+/- 1pm onwards), make sure to plane your... More

The butterfly farm is a nice place to spend a couple of hours if the weather is not good. The attraction is comprised of 3 closures with tropical like weather and each is filled with beautiful butterflies. We were 2 adults and a 6 m/o baby which was mesmerized by the colorful butterflies.

I have visited Papilorama many times. The butterfly dome is really nice, and depending on the time of day, and the season, you see different numbers and types of butterflies. The night dome is very well done, and quite unique. The jungle trek, while also nice, is somehow less impressive and would benefit from having more free birds (parrots or... More

Great place to go with little kids. Lots of butterflies, bats zipping around your head (you can feel the wind in their wake!), big birds, a large snake. Also a small domestic animal zoo outside, though petting is not allowed (the donkeys don't seem to mind, though...). We visit about once a year and it's always fun.

Always so beautifull with new things to see everytime. Perfect with childs. A little bit expensive for a family. My tip : take your pic-nic because the restaurant is so poor. Good luck if you don't like nuggets and sausages. Sustainable development except in restaurant. And menu is only on german

What a refreshing place for kids and adults. It looks like 3 indoor tennis centres but there are 3 amazing bubble zones, butterflies in the hothouse (wear layers you can remove as it hots up!), a night time bubble with gorgeous sloths and a bizarre soft prickle porcupine roaming the trees plus loadsabats. Then the Belize bubble is a recreation... More
