Looking at different rypes of fish normaaly out of range, is spectacular. Big, small, beautiful, ugly, strange... the big turtle and shark are the eyecatchers

Maybe it is not the best place in town to visit and see the aquarium however it’s one of the few places that you can have some time with children

We went there on a rainy Saturday which of course was not the best idea as many others had the same. The very long waiting time (60 minutes eventhough we bought a ticket online) was explained with the limitation of 30 people to be let...More

Great place for kids to learn about sea life. There is a bit of everything including small sharks, a big sea turtle, catfish, rays, and morays. At 13 we listened to a story about different animals ( in German only), and we could touch some...More
