Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Visit the biggest aquarium in Northern Europe, Nordsøen Oceanarium, where you can see seals, cod, seabass, and schooling fish. The center tank can hold 4,500,000 litres (1,189,00 gallons) of water. It was built to imitate the open sea so that many of the species of fish could live comfortably. There are also habitat tanks that recreate habitats certain fish need to survive, and a seal pool where you can see the harbor seal and gray seal. Informational TV screens are set up throughout that give information about the specific fish--be aware, though, that presentations are in Danish. Children can draw and paint in one of the play areas. If you want to see one of the feedings, check the schedule in advance on the website. To visit Nordsøen Oceanarium and other attractions in Hirtshals, use our Hirtshals tour planner.

  • Read a little about the Oceanarium, but not very much. Sounded interesting, and I thought it will be a nice familieprogramm, but not expecting very much. The first surprise was the dimension of the Oceanarium. The place is really great! And here we mean not only aquariums, but landscaping, restaurant, various parts of the exhibition. Enhanced-quality is uniformly high, and it was really entertaining for adults and young. The biggest attraction is the large aquarium me many different fish, sharks, Ocean Sunfish that is fed by a diver who's talking to the audience while he or she is in the water. It will be shown many different aspects of life in the sea, and the sea people. The restaurant is spacious, games room at the end of the corridor, and the food was very good, and in addition, quickly delivered. (it is an important factor for my kids:). You'll find children's playground outside, and the pool to the seals. We were there with two guys on the 2 and 5 years, and was there from 12 noon-almost 17 k, and the next day before leaving five year old would certainly take a visit to, when we were there from 10-14:), and still was a lot to see. It's a small Aquarium, where it is allowed to take on fish and sea star, is a good idea to include the esktra t-shirt for kids , in case they get wet, otherwise you get dry clothes by hand-dryer on do-which I did. We come back, that's for sure! ´

  • What a great place! The staff is very good at both "painting the big picture-stories" and the cool detail-stuff, and all done with the spirit that comes from knowledge of the subject-matter. The place itself lends easily to all sorts of ways to experience, see (and touch 😁) the fish. Highly recommended
  • Good aquarium! Kids will enjoy...dont miss the seal feeding , they does twice a day.. advised to buy the tickets online so you get some cash back on food coupons..
  • Demonstrations and the change to literally touch some sea animals is amazing. Worthwhile a visit.
  • A hidden gem; lots to keep kids of all ages entertained for hours.
  • Impressive! Original setup and lots to see and do.
