  • All their money came here with a small child: instructive about the off-shore plants, the history of fishing as a open-air museum. In the Aquarium, you can better meet the fish of the North Sea and a highlight is certainly the feeding of seals. The large playground kids can romp in the meantime and if you are hungry after all the impressions, there is something to eating in the cafe. For all of us, there were varied hours.

  • A whole day can be completed smoothly here, wonderful Marine Aquarium and the children's play area, an outdoor museum, the Museum restaurant is super good, at first we didn't want to go there to eat, whereas an ordinary canteen, but ended up as a good couple of hours spent there and there was no other and still had a lot of places we ate there after all, and I do not regret doing it! Our life is our best Caesar salad: 34 there was huge and yummy, and the price is average. The seal also demonstrated Super feeding experience. :) At any time, would be happy to go back some day.
