The Burggarten Palmhouse

As the Burggarten was created, a classical greenhouse also designed by Ludwig Gabriel von Remy was constructed. The back wall of the greenhouse was comprised of the old city walls. When the old building was torn down at the end of the century, the current Palm House was built. The building, designed by Friedrich Ohmann, stood ready in 1901. The structure, 128 meters long and with a floor area of around 2.000 square metres took five years to build.

The 2050 sqm. building houses plants used to decorate official functions, one of Viennas popular restaurants and of course the tropical butterfly house. As you walk around the butterfly house, under waterfalls and inside hollow trees, colourful live tropical butterflies will flutter around you.
