14 euro for two adults, place is tiny (one room), can't see that many butterflies - total waste of time and resources to visit. Not 'magical' like you might think - just sort of mundane.

We didn´t know what to expect and were surprised. The place is small, hot and the humidity is high. But you can observe plants spread with honey for attract the butterflies and feed them. You can see big, colored butterflies and their pupas, often they...More

A small botanical garden with many butterflies and extremely hot and humid....necessary for the flowers, including orchids, and the many butterflies. Interesting but perhaps a once only visit, unless, like the Hapsburgs, it was your own and you could enjoy it without the other tourists!

I must confess to being a fan of Victorian-era buildings (we're in Vienna so maybe "early 1900s Art Nouveau" might be a better term). No idea about the butterfly collection inside, but the building is highly impressive. It's also on one side of the Burggarten...More

I will be short: you are charged 7 euros to "enjoy" ARTIFICIAL flowers. Yes, I am not kidding, most of the flowers were artificial ones! I was simply shocked. And it is really annoying!

One can see the beautiful butterflies flying around but they could make a little more effort in my opinion, considering the entrance cost (around 7 euro pp). There are plastic flowers splashed with sugar inside and cut fruit left on the plates for the butterflies....More

Here for the first time, I arrive at 15. Is recommended to leave the jacket outside, inside is very warm. Nice decorations of trees and flowers, with a lot of butterflies. Fantastic colors, nice atmosphere. Recommended for children. Price 5,5€ with Vienna card.
