Butterfly House

They had a huge arching dome sweeping out into the yard, completely made of glass. The glass made the area extremely light and also extremely HOT. The make it even more tropical, they had lots of water in the form of waterfalls and small streams running through.The humidity rivaled what we had in Japan!
Right in the middle of the city, actually a part of the Hofburg palace, is the historical Vienna butterfly house. The butterfly house is actually a part of the palace we had just toured with the back of the butterfly house being one of the outside walls of the castle.

We must have stood there for an hour, attempting to take pictures of butterflies, managing to somehow get only a few decent shots.
