40: A butterfly research station

Now to our small research station, which not only our young visitors shall enjoy. Why not test your sense of smell on a number of smelling bottles on display here? 

The sense of smell is of particular importance in nature. For instance, it helps our butterflies to find a partner. You can also admire butterflies on display through our magnifying glasses. The tiny scales on their wings or the filigree limbs will delight you, we are sure. 

In addition, you will discover under glass bells fascinating aspects from the world of our native butterflies, such as the annual migration of tens of thousands of “Painted Ladies” in springtime from Africa across the northern hemisphere to us and further into the far north, and their return later in autumn.
