Really nice addition to the day visiting the butterfly house- many beautiful butterfly's in a beautiful greenhouse. Fairly cheap but wouldn't say it's even a half-day attraction (I think it took us 45 minutes max). Nice way to get a break from historic sightseeing.

The interior space made for a lovely time viewing butterflies in a natural setting. They have various species in all states including a larval cacoon area.

We went through an incredibly lovely butterfly house in Vienna, but having visited ones in other parts of the world (Australia) it pales somewhat in comparison Not sure it is worth the price.

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.

In the garden of the Vienna Burg, there is this wonderful Jugendstil house, where hundreds of butterflies are around.

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.

From the outside, the glasshouse is beautiful and stepping through the plastic doors you feel you are entering another world. From the first step, you can see butterflies flying around, resting on plants and emerging from chrysalises. There is a bridge across the room and...More

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