This is a small glasshouse (like a mini Kew Garden one) kept humid where there are lots of free flying butterflies. There is a little staircase to take you higher up, where it is even hotter! Worth a 10 minute visit if you like butterflies.

At €6.50 this is a bit pricey. However, there is a very nice garden with some beautiful flowers. Make sure you go upstairs. Not as many butterflies as other places i have been but a pleasant escape for 15/20 minutes.

Cost to entertainment value is perfect. Enjoyable cheap exhibit. If it won't make you smile I don't know what will!

With much longing for a tropical climate, this butterfly house was the answer. to think that it is still part of the inner city of Vienna. After sometime relaxing at the Burggarten we decided to come here. Warm but fascinating and alluring to watch the...More
