Thank you very much for your fine and thorough review. We're not sure if you're talking about our boats because we don't have any where the interior is torn down. However lots of kids play with them, and sometimes bring in a lot of sand...More

We visited the aquarium as we got a kombiticket with Kystcentret Thyborøn. It's cute and small, will probably take you less time to check it all when travelling without children, as it offers an option to touch the fishes. They have an electric aal and...More

It's rather small, so it seems quite expensive for its price. Nevertheless, there is a lot of useful and interesting information about the fishes and many possibilities to touch some of them. If you want to participate in the seal safari it's better to arrange...More
