Generally speaking, expected to see more butterflies..maybe they were sleeping/hybernating on Friday,Dec 2nd. Maybe you should ask before entrance how many butterflies are actually in the hall which is very small so the tour lasts for 15 min top; only one bench to sit down.

Good price but so few butterflies. Not anywhere as good as was expecting and certainly not as good as others have been to back home.

This was a lovely experience butterflies all over the place sitting on trees and a beautiful little waterfall and a small bridge that you walked over and the waterfall that you could look out from the inside. For such a small place it really was delightful. Cost of entry 5.50 euros

Great place to visit, costs €6.50 for adults. Lots of different butterflies to see and you can take your time around the area. Really nice park close by too, would highly recommend!

Passed this butterflyhouse, and the women couldnt resist visiting. So we did, and we dont regret. Lots and lots of beautiful butterflies in various sizes, colors and patterns. But dont go in wearing to much clothes as there is very warn and moist. Well worth a visit for ALL ages!

This venue was very disappointing. The only English translation was a sign saying "do not touch anything at all", but the information posters about the life-style of a butterfly were only in German. There were only two species of butterfly to be seen, and not too many specimens either. It was very hot and humid, but the coat & scarf... More

This is one of the Vienna must- see. It is a small place and it might seem a bit pricey but the joy of the butterflies, of the exotic flowers and of the kids touched by the wings was such a great experiences!

We where walking back from museums area and we passed around the butterfly house , and we suggested to have a look in , it cost 13€ for 2 adults, the house small compared to other butterfly houses, you will enjoy there specially if is it raining outside

Not the most widely advertised attraction but it can be found at the back of the Albertina. 13 Euros a bit steep for 2 people and 20 minutes entertainment in a hot, sweaty glass house. The butterflies are attractive and great fun for kids.

As you get inside you feel the tropical air of the small reservation and you see all these beautiful creatures flying around in a fairy tale like scenery. Besids the beautiful butterflies there are lovley flowers and a small waterfall or two. Worth the visit

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
