After a short coach ride from our ship's dock in Koblenz, we arrived at Sayn Palace & Butterfly Garden. Our group was taken inside where we had a short briefing about what we were about to see.
Click on the image above for a closer look at the colorful collection of exotic butterflies from South America, Africa and Asia, which were part of the tropical paradise of palm and banana trees with trickling waterfalls and bridges.

Highlights were the Chinese Atlas-moth, whose wing span measures about 25 cm., which was very majestic, and the Blue Morpho of Brazil, which was very allusive. You could also explore the second pavilion “caterpillar house” to learn more about the process from egg to butterfly.
