The SchmetterlingsDschungel is unique along the Lower Rhine. Up to 200 colourful butterflies are buzzing around the visitors in tropical vegetation. You will feel as if you’re entering a different world when you step into this building. Before the background of the quiet rumbling of the brook, visitors will find selected specimens of this highly diverse order of insects on their way through the butterfly house.

Watch in amazement as the butterflies hatch at the caterpillar boxes of the SchmetterlingsDschungel. The entire life cycle of a butterfly, from egg to caterpillar, and pupa to adult butterfly is one of the great wonders of nature that you can observe in the SchmetterlingsDschungel. We receive our pupae from butterfly farmers who operate sustainable butterfly breeding in the countries of origin and protect the rain forest.
