Beautiful Butterfly
Jul 2021 • Couples
A small, compact but beautiful and charming garden with butterflies. Views and smells. There is also a bar and a souvenir shop. Very interesting place.

Nice but small. Half an hour...tops.

Butterflies! It's a hot day and with Covid we have to wear masks inside this little greenhouse. It feels like 40C in here. The butterflies fly all around you, one even sits on me. Some vivariums. Most look empty but the animals probably hide. A nice blue frog catches the eye. Because this place is so small, we are outside again within half an hour. I've seen better butterfly gardens with much more variety. And some of the butterflies didn't look that healthy...

Nice collection of butterflies
Jul 2019 • Family
We stopped here on the way to the NaturOparC. It is worth the stop if you like butterflies. There is a nice walk through butterfly garden with lots of (you guessed it) butterflies.

Amazing experience
Oct 2018 • Friends
This place is really nice to visit - walking around with "wild" butterflys flying around you. You can come close to them, take photos and there is a silence that is quite relaxing. The place is a bit worn but as they do not recieve funding from the state it is understandable.

Don’t waste your money on this overpriced tourist attraction. Entry fee 8 Euro’s for one small greenhouse of butterflies.

A Local attraction visit.
Jul 2018 • Couples
An admirably intentioned establishment giving plenty of pleasure to people whilst educating them on the life-cycle of butterflies.
However, in our opinion a little short on interest and quality, as the buildings themselves were somewhat in need of modernisation and there was a limited variety of butterflies.
The video on the history of the attraction, and the butterflies, was positively ancient (maybe 20 yrs old or more), with only German sub-title. It was shown in a marquee tent with garden style furniture to sit on. Not ideal for non-language experts, nor comfortable for the over 50's!
The actual butterfly house is an old nursery greenhouse type building, with sub-tropical & tropical plants providing food and cover for some beautiful exotic butterflies. However, we spent an hour in there, specifically to photograph them, but only identified nine different species. Disappointed to say the least. I even managed to carry one out on my hat, which I think wanted to get out!

Great for the kids, not for the adults, and not for more than an hour or so. A tad steep at €8/person, we thought, for what it provides.
I'll do an extra wine-tasting instead.

Pass an enchanting hour here
Jun 2018 • Family
We weren't expecting much at this butterfly garden . . . and we were wrong. We spent a lovely hour in the butterfly enclosure, some of the time just sitting on a bench watching these gorgeous insects flutter about. My husband, a yoga instructor, though it would be a perfect place to meditate. Try to go early so you can be alone or almost alone in the place.
There is a film and an exhibit but only in French. Fortunately, butterflies are multi-lingual.

Oasis of tranquility and beauty
May 2018 • Couples
The "Jardin the papillons" is a small garden, away from the crowds, where you can look in awe at some of the most beautiful creatures on earth : butterflies.
According to your time and patience, you can spend anything between 30 minutes up to 2 hours here, just admiring the butterflies.
The garden is 5 minutes by car from Ribeauvillé, in the midst of the alsation Route des Vins.
