  • 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. T...  read 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 expe...  read more »
  • Missed Butterfly believe it's due to age, we only saw a couple of 3 types, and apparently must have many. I hope to go back soon for real my 6 €

  • A lot of interesting species of Butterflies but it's quite expensive to go in. In the summer it's very hot inside, you feel like you're in a tropical rain forest. If you have a decent camera then you can capture stunning images of colourful butterflies. Some butterflies even land on your fingers/clothing and stay on you!
  • I went on a cool summer day but the interior was still hot and humid. Learn from my mistakes, do not wear heavy clothing you will leave in a pool of sweat. Besides the heat this place houses an impressive amount of butterfly's in a wonderful jungle-like ecosystem. Great for kids!
  • It was truly amazing walking in that tropical garden while beautiful butterflies were flying around. My favorite ones were the blue ones, which were, sadly, impossible to capture on a photograph :)
  • A fun attraction with lots of butterflies inside a beautiful small garden.
  • It is nice and interesting but very expensive. We think considering it's size they are charging too much for it. If you're really wanting to see some butterflies whist in Vienna go here, otherwise perhaps spend your money elsewhere.
