A very special trip idea in Saxony is the Butterfly House in Jonsdorf. It is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations in Saxony .

27.08.2018 – The million was cracked

The couple Fiedel from Schlegel visit our house several times a year, as well as today with their great-grandchildren Wilhelmine and Albert. But this time the joy was especially great. Congratulations to the 1.000.000 visitors!

01.08.2018 – Our August-Special

For over 14 years, there is already the butterfly house in Jonsdorf and we look forward to welcoming our 1,000,000 visitors soon! We can not say exactly when this will be, but it will be sometime in August. Let yourself be surprised and maybe you are the one!?! To celebrate the day, this visitor and his companions will receive free entry and personal guidance from the manager, as well as a voucher worth 60 Eur for our cafeteria / souvenir corner. We are curious who will crack the million with us!

25.7.2018 – Ape babies

This morning we had a happy surprise for our keepers. Our monkeys got offspring again. The first snapshot of the two little ones is already well done.

06.06.2018 – Our offspring in may

  • Physignathus cocincinus
  • Phelsuma standingi

10.02.2018 – Turtles have moved

Just in time for the beginning of the holiday, our two turtles have moved into their new and larger enclosure. The two feel very well there and curiously explore their new empire.

Since the fencing is not very high, we ask our visitors to stay on the trails and not to enter the enclosure, as well as the animals only to watch and not to pet! Our turtles are fed appropriately and balanced, so we ask that you do not feed the animals and also bring any food or other things brought into the enclosure!


06.02.2018 – 14 years butterfly house Jonsdorf

Tomorrow, on 7.2.2018, we are already celebrating our 14th anniversary! We would like to thank all our guests, who visited our butterfly house in the last years and are looking forward to many more visitors! Our personal highlight this year will be that we welcome our millionth visitor. There will be another species in the air hall soon. Our red-turtles, who currently inhabit a third-floor terrarium, will move into an open enclosure in the Butterfly Flight Hall. This is still under construction and will be ready soon. At the moment we are still working on a shelter. We will report as soon as the turtles have moved.

We are looking forward to your visit!

23.01.2018 – Winter rest finished

Our corn snakes keep hibernation every year and we used this time to redesign the terrarium.

Now the snakes were allowed to move in again and are visibly comfortable.
