Beautiful place to visit with all kind of butterflies. The feeling is like you are in a big forest and the only thing you can hear are birds and water falls. All over the place they have fruit plates, after I grab a grape the butterflies come to it. Definetly a once in a life time experience.

Very close to be a fraud.
Cramped location, from the entrance ticket to the shop, forget the social distancing. The so-called "Butterfly House" is probably 10 meters long and absolutely not enjoyable, not a bit. Very few butterflies that can be seen mostly in the -very artificial- feeding stations. Save your time and money and avoid this tourist trap.
If you care about butterflies please go to the zoo and visit the tropical area.

To respond to someone who thinks that the Kaisers historical " Jugendstil " palmhouse is just 10m long is difficult . Perhaps you had other problems that day ? In any case your review is quite obviously not to be taken seriously.

The Butterfly House is located in a very similar architectural building to the Palmenhaus in Schönbrunn.
It is not so huge to visit as part of is a restaurant.
At the first sight butterflies are not visible but after a while you can see they are everywhere. Most of them are black but there are some coloured.
I have never been before and it was a lovely surprise.
Inside it is humid even in winter and I suggest to take the jacket off and leave it at the wardrobe.

If you like the feeling of hundreds of butterflies with every pattern and color you could imagine, this is for you. If you stand still they will even land on you. The 6 year old, who is a butterfly fanatic, loved it -- she even put some food on her finger (this one butterfly, it seems, loves bananas) and she had a friend for the whole visit.
It is very hot and humid in there... so if it is hot outside, it is even hotter in the house.

I visited with my family and was quite shocked about the amount of dead butterflies, almost half of them dead.

In their shop I bought seeds for a meat eating plant for my nephews, which I then later realized were overdue when I checked the date, I went back there and spoke to the manager who didn't want to give me the money back, he told me to come back if the seeds don't grow, which they didn't do. Since I was a tourist it also was not a possibility for me, so I found this extremely arrogant and rude and I would really not recommend this place.

Hello Elias, you seem to be a bit upset but anything bought in the shop would immediately be exchanged especially if anything was out of date.??We are not quite sure about your review ???

Possibly the most peaceful, fascinating part of our holiday. This - without even a hint of exaggeration - is a tropical paradise that will leave you in awe of its several types of butterfly. You can tell that the butterflies are very well looked after - being surrounded by various species of plants, bodies of water and fresh fruit - as hardly any were attracted to the lemon we had (stupidly) rubbed on to our hands two minutes prior. The only improvement that could be made is to perhaps provide more staff, as the woman on the desk - though coping and being extremely polite - was clearly struggling. Regardless, it was a very lovely, humid experience.

I normaly love butterfly houses, but this one was really small and expensive in comparison to others. After 10 minutes we walked through the greenhouse and lost €7.

This was a really pleasant building with lovely plants and not too busy. Not many butterflies, and most were brown with an occasional brightly coloured butterfly. It is only a short experience but nice and calm.
