Parks and Gardens, Zoos, animal parks and enclosures

A feeling like being in a tropical rainforest, an oasis of hundreds of free-flying butterflies.

In a free-flight hall, 500 butterflies of 150 species can be admired at a temperature of 30 degrees. Since July 2003, alaris has been operating the fourth butterfly park in Germany in Sassnitz on the island of Rügen. One difference to the other alaris butterfly parks is the special light on the coast, the high UV content strongly resembles the natural light conditions especially of the South American butterflies. Constantly on display are about 100 different species from four continents that come exclusively from breeding farms, such as bird butterflies, passion flower butterflies and blue morphos. The life cycle of the butterflies from egg to caterpillar and pupa to adult butterfly can be observed here. Dwarf quails keep insect pests under control. In the cafeteria you can enjoy coffee and cake. In the store there are many souvenirs around the butterfly and of course brochures and posters.
