    At a 90% humidity and temperatures between 25 ° C and 30 ° C you can marvel at free-flying tropical butterflies from Africa, Asia, Central and South America in about 120 different species.
    At times, moths with wingspan up to 30 cm can also be seen. 70% of the moths come directly from the countries of origin, where they are bred in special breeding farms. These arrive weekly as dolls on the island of Mainau. The remaining 30% multiply directly in the butterfly house on the respective forage plants.
    There the development of the egg over caterpillar (larva) and pupa up to the finished moth can be observed.

    A highlight of the Mainau day is certainly a visit to the second largest butterfly house in Germany. A tour through the exotic landscape with unique vegetation gives you a real tropical feeling:
    With a humidity of approx. 90% and temperatures between 25 ° C and 30 ° C you can marvel at free-flying tropical butterflies from Africa, Asia, Central and South America in approx. 120 different species.
    At times moths with a wingspan of up to 30 cm can also be seen. 70% of the moths come directly from their countries of origin, where they are bred in special breeding farms. These arrive weekly as dolls on the island of Mainau. The remaining 30% reproduce directly in the butterfly house on the respective forage plants.

    A lively butterfly house with a lot of beautiful specimens. Maybe even the highlight of the entire island. Unfortunately, the keeping of cockatoos in cages that are much too small leaves a lot to be desired. Therefore, it is no longer entirely up-to-date.
