The Butterfly Garden

An exciting excursion for the whole family!

Welcome to the wonderful world of butterflies at the Butterfly Garden in Knokke-Heist.

As you step into the Vlindertuin, you enter a primeval forest of exotic plants complete with a babbling brook. More than 300 butterflies from a wide variety of countries flutter and flit wherever you go, including passionflower butterflies, tropical butterflies, owlet moths, red admirals etc. And, if you’re lucky, some may even come and land gently on your head or shoulders.

from chrysalis to butterfly

During the season, many butterflies breed and procreate in the Butterfly Garden. You’ll see them at all stages of their lifecycle: eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises and fully-fledged butterflies. The colourful information panels will also tell you everything you need to know about their remarkable process of growth. All of which makes an excursion to the Butterfly Garden a wondrous and fascinating journey into the world of these amazing insects.
