A very nice establishment. The Butterflys fly free and can look out for the free flying Butterflys. There are more than 40 different types of Butterflys. One does not only admire the Butterflys but also the plants.

I really liked the place, all of the pants and the butterflies flying everywhere around you. The only minus was that the temperature outside was something like 30 degrees and inside was the same but the humidity was killing me. I know this is a necessity, but we could stay inside for not more than 10 minutes, it was hard... More

Butterfly House is a building looks remotely like a greenhouse. Located in the Bogrtn garden. First of all, the garden is worth a visit. You can sit there for a short rest or a snack. Visit in the Butterfly house is a short visit but very enjoyable. Recommended for adults and children. The place is full of different kinds of... More

Well maintained and beautiful collection of exotic butterflies. One is able to wander at leisure through the butterfly house and wonder at the sheer dazzling brilliance of the collection. A 'nursery ' of the various stages of butterfly life is displayed and some wonderful jungle plants too. Not to be missed. Special rates for seniors. Its not very big ,... More

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.
