It is a truly wonderful experience to walk in midst of the butterflies and be surrounded by bats when they are fed. A beautiful place in regards to ist vegetation and the animals. We love to go again and again, never get tired of it and the kids love it too!

Our children loved this place! We visited on a rainy day as we had read that there was lots of undercover which turned out to be true. Thankfully the rain stopped for long enough so that we were able to see the outside exhibits. Lovely set up and very family friendly. The car park gives you easy access to walk... More

Very interesting and fun, especially for kids. It takes at least 2 hours to visit, there's an outdoor part with goats, rabbits etc. which is ok, but the jungle part and the butterflies are the best. I even managed to get the courage to enter the Noctarium where bats fly around you - and I am terrified of bats. All... More

Found it expensive for what we saw. Not a lot to see, although the kids had fun! The parking lot was expensive too, it was very tight and smelly in many parts somehow I had a better memory of It as a child

The place is nice with many colorful butterflies and a small variety of nocturnal animals. Overall it's good for about 1-2 hours and it's a nice place if it's raining outside since it's all indoors.

This is a cool place to enjoy a special type of zoo. Three domes, each has a unique collection of animals and insects. Start by visiting the Papiliorama Butterfly dome, and enjoy the colorful and divers species of butterflies. Co to the next dome where you will enter a dark place with UV lights to enjoy watching night animals and... More

I was expecting this to be a butterfly park more so than a zoo given its name. Given I'm not a big zoo fan but love butterflies, here my experience: I really enjoyed the butterfly area and the lady explaining about the butterflies when she released some. They also have a big area for nocturnal animals, as well as an... More

Visiting early in the morning with just a few guests around (at that time). Friendly reception staff, enough parking space available with just a short walk towards the entrance. Splitted in three areas. Started with papiliorama. Hot and humid so better bring something to clean your camera lens. Great entourage for numerous colourful butterflies. Subsequently the night vision area with... More
