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.

This is a small time animal park come aquarium. They have some pretty cool animals, but they are primarily marketed for families with children. For this purpose it is very good indeed.

Fun and educational for both kids and adults. Great facilities both indoors and outdoors, also if you are travelling with a stroller. In the outdoor area there are a lot of animals to see, also grills, tables and a playground.

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.
