Under expectations. The place is not so big, and the tiket price is a little bit to high for what offer.

I have been to other sea lifes but this one is tiny, amazingly expensive (60 euros for 4 of us!!!!!!!!!!). In total less than an hour of 'entertainment'. Would not recommend this for anyone at all, even on a rainy day. The queue took several times as long as the attraction itself.

Drove an hour and a half expecting the aquarium to be half decent. Very small, few fish, and small exhibits for the animals. The only thing that made this visit worth it was going to the museum of transportation.

Having read the reviews, many of which say the same thing - small, etc, we still went as there really isn't much to do for a three year old in the region other than Luisenpark and walks in the bush. So we thought to try something new. My son is three and a half and he was entertained. He probably... More

great place for our young children to visit , not too busy when we went and there was enough to keep them occupied. They enjoyed the food in the little restaurant also. Book online to get a cheaper price

I have been to aquariums before and I was skeptical about one in Germany but was pleasantly surprised by this one. Sharks and stingrays and sea turtles. Very quaint little aquarium but pretty cool exhibits. Not the biggest but definitely a fun little indoor aquarium.

The cost for the size of this aquarium is a little high for me, but the staff was very nice. They ensured that we got to touch all the hands on exhibits and gave us great information in English. The gift shop was reasonably priced.

Shame... Just too small. The whole experience took just over one hour might also be because excited children run around quickly from on tank to the next. Still as children are the main focus this is something to consider. All that saying the upstairs tanks were very nice, a small reef tank very colourful and the main tank with sharks... More

Nice for very young children but very small. Elevator not very accommodating for a stroller. Small snack area on the way out.
