“Depressing and Sterile”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

The whole experience was just bland, nothing more than fish in tanks. There was one section in the middle with non-aquatic animals, but generally it was quite dull. No apparent attempts to develop a theme, or atmosphere outside of the tanks.
The best acquariums make you feel like you are part of the habitat, or moving along a watercourse, nothing like that here.
Also not much signage for non-German speakers.

“Disappointing, Almost Depressing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

The Aquarium was very disappointing. While I understand that fish don't need AS much space as larger animals, many exhibits seemed like the animals had little/no space for any type of activity. Wasn't very exciting at all, and most of the information was either outdated or common knowledge. It could be a potential afternoon spent well with smaller children who just want to see animals, but for anyone over 10, there are much better Aquariums in Germany that would make much better visits.

“Nice park, average zoo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

As Aquariums go, it rather run down and uninspired in parts, has little to no information in English, although €7 entry is very reasonable. As of April 2012 they were not able to take debit or credit cards which is extremely annoying.
