our butterfly house

open daily

This is how colorful nature is! Just like fluttering colors, butterflies fly through the air. Visitors can marvel at butterflies from all over the world in our accessible butterfly house. It seems as if there is no limit for different colors and shapes. The atlas moth imitates a snakes head, the Indian moon moth however has a long tail and wings arched like half-moons. Eggs, caterpillars, cocoons and moths - in our butterfly house you can discover the different stages of butterflies. Maybe you get lucky to see the pupation or the hatching of a butterfly!

Get a 360 ° panoramic view of the butterfly house.
