The butterflies' controlled environment provides them with the safety they need to multiply, so you can observe their life cycle in all its stages.

  • € 8.50 admission for 20 min to visit. We came late in the season: there were only a dozen species... Not top...

  • A great place where butterflies and others walk freely. A good reception. Very nice to see

  • The Concept is interesting and the butterflies are pretty. The young visitor is not at the level and the children are constantly scolded. The Director lacks pedagogy and visitors seems present to pay... The service and trade are not the appointment, damage for the ride in the family.

  • Beautiful place if you are able to stand still for some minutes and look at the details around you. It is a small place so it is not suitable for someone just passing through, you gotta take your time to enjoy the beauty of it.
  • This a well laid out butterfly house, busy at all times.
  • Such a delight to see the beauty of nature so interactively.
  • It's a nice place to see butterflies and moths. Nicely laid and with good planting. It is very expensive though for a family visiting and not really sure it's worth the money.
  • Correct.
