our butterfly house // open daily

Butterfly House in the Biosphere Potsdam

This is how colourful the nature is! Just like fluttering colours, 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 colours 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. And maybe you get lucky and you see the pupation or the hatching of a butterfly!
