The location is nice but too small. In the end it is just one covered garden with plants and butterflies. We have spent only 30 minutes here, still we enjoyed the time.More

The "Garden of Butterflies" is just slightly off the beaten path but well worth a side trip, especially for families with young children. The experience begins with a short film (French with German subtitles) on the life cycle of butterflies and their place in the...More
