At the Øresund Aquarium you can experience the amazing underwater world.

The Aquarium has a special focus on the Danish marine fish and invertebrates that live in ponds and the ocean nearby.

Marine fish and animals
At the Øresund Aquarium you find two large pools where you can touch marine fish and animals. One pool is divided into 3 different heights and is particularly suitable for children. Here you can stick your fingers down to crabs, sea anemones and sea urchins. The second pool is an open pool, where adults, maybe with a child in their arms might be lucky enough to touch a Danish sting ray or a little shark. Discover a wealth of different animals and plants, and explore habitats on the bottom of Øresund.

Summer activities and whale watching tours
In the summer between 25th June – 14 August you can participate in a variety of exciting maritime activities at The Øresund Aquarium. For example every Tuesday and Thursday at 4-6 PM and again at 7-9 PM you can join a guinea pig safari trip in Øresund in a large inflatable boat. Booking for these tours begin on 20 June at 12 PM and trips cost DKK 170 for children between 3-11 years and DKK 210 for adults.
