"Schmetterlinghaus" Schmetterlinghaus - The Imperial Butterfly House Tip by coccinella169


This is a nice Jugendstil building, a glass house, located in Burggarten park - actually the building itself is worth a visit. Next to it is the Palmenhaus restaurant and bar. There are hundreds of butterflies flying around in a tropical environment. They have a lot of tropical plants, small waterfalls and ponds, to create a more authentic atmosphere. Further animals I spotted apart from the butterflies were some dwarf quails and one single cockroach resting on a leaf :). Entrance fee is about EUR 5.
