Although we visited butterfly gardens in tropical countries, we were deeply impressed by this garden in the Northern Hemisphere. It is really remarkable how the tropical environment is imitated and how many different species of butterflies, animals and plants are living together in a limited space. Thus: Highly recommended! Zoological gardens often have a tropical house - but butterflies all... More

The butterfly exhibit was really cool. Really unexpected to come across it in our travels, but that area of town has many lovely things. They had many different types of butterflies in different stages of metamorphosis and the foliage was beautiful as well.

Great collections of butterflies. I love the fact that you can stay there and just read books while butterflies hover around you. Tiny colorful rice birds and teeny tiny quails sneak around for food and a turtle may cross your path. Great exhibit of other insects and the nursery for newly hatched butterflies is just jaw dropping specially if you... More

We took the bus from Koblenz to Sayn and it was well worth the visit. We could have stayed for hours enjoying the atmosphere and all of the beautiful butterflies. Not worth buying the combi ticket though as the palace is hardly worth the visit of one floor!

this was a nice garden of butterflies and other animals. not to crowded. Many butterflies to photograph there are places to sit and watch them fly or watch the turtle and birds roam around. A good place to visit if your in the area.

a very nice place to relax and enjoy a lively winter garden. it can be also a bit crowdy if you want to visit it during the weekend.

This was an interesting and calming experience for our family. The enclosed area looks small, but surprisingly you can walk around for a long time if you are not in a hurry. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was certainly not crowded. My wife commented that this was like one of those games where you have to try... More

This is not in Koblenz, but it is worth the trip, especially if you take some time to walk around the park outside the butterfly garden and visit the schloss across the street. For about 9 euro you can get a ticket for the schmetterlings garden and the schloss Sayn. There is a playground outside and a snack bar with... More

Schmetterlingsgarten Sayn is not actually in Koblenz but it is absolutely worth the drive. The botanical garden-style rooms are filled with large, exotic butterflies that flutter around you and might even come sit on you if you hold still long enough. Absolutely lovely if you enjoy nature at all.

This beautiful Butterfly House only opened in late 2009. It is situated in a park beside the pretty Sayn Castle (which you can also visit) and near the spectacular ruins of an older hilltop fortress (great little hike with views). Gorgeous butterflies and colorful plants. Watch out for the cheeky ('though friendly) iguana.
