The North Sea Oceanarium

Take your family on a exciting trip!

A visit to Northern Europe's largest aquarium takes you on an exciting adventure underwater. Our 10,000 square meters indoor, 5,000 square meters outdoor, 70 tanks and more than 6,500 fish and other marine animals, offers the opportunity to spend a full day “at sea” and even “under water“ – and on various attractive playgrounds. At the North Sea Oceanarium, there is lots of fun and playful learning – for all ages.

New exhibition 2018
Hunters of the North Sea: go on an adventure through the food chain in the North Sea, where you will meet everything from the smallest of plankton to the largest of predators. Experience BIG OCEAN WINDOW, the largest interactive screen in Denmark.

Our exhibition “Expedition North Sea” has seven destinations: on land, at sea and to the deepest seabed of the North Sea. No matter in which order and how long you will spend exploring each destination, it will be a fun and educational experience for the entire family. Purchase an Expedition Passport for children under 12 years and follow the exciting tasks on their tour around the North Sea Oceanarium.

Visit the large gray seals and the smaller harbor seals in their large outdoor exhibit at the North Sea Oceanarium. You can follow them in a 12-meter underwater tunnel and see them being fed two times a day. The Sunfish and the other fishes (sharks, rays and shoals) in in the large ocean tank are fed twice daily by a diver. See feeding times.

During the year The North Sea Oceanarium, arrange different theme exhibitions and fun activities. See their calendar of activities.
