Overview

At AQUA, you can see some fascinating Danish animals in wild natural surroundings. Join the zookeeper who will feed the animals and give you plenty of fascinating information. You will see otters, raccoons, wild boar cubs, snakes and many other wild animals. You can also have lots of fun with water - indoors and outdoors. Enjoy hours of fun on the water playground. In the indoors aquarium, you can see fish at the bottom of the pool through the panoramic windows. Touch the fish in the touch pool and explore the exhibitions that are arranged over 4 floors. In our cafe area next to the large playground, you can at and grill your own food - or enjoy a selection of light dishes in the Café Foderbraettet. We serve delicious organic food indoors in the cafe - for lunch and dinner.

Lovely staff and a great way to get to know the fish in local waters. The fish are mostly kept in outside ponds and look healthy and free from parasites or illnesses. A good sign.
