Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • It is a fantastic place with many experiences, also with 2 teenage girls. But ... When you pay USD 170 per nose is it disappointing that so many of the interactive activities is in pieces. It is disappointing and embarrassing to our foreign customers. I counted at least 5 things ending with the printer that would print pictures. However, an electrician employed so more. The food in the cafe is excellent.

  • Decent place. Takes a few hours though.
  • Really nice aquarium with fish, seals, sharks, rays, and of course the infamous sunfish. Great place to bring the family.
  • Fun for young and old. A little disorienting with so much to see and everything is placed in like a maze. But very fun, and lots of fun creatures.
  • Lots of living sea creatures, and the sunfish is just amazing.
  • Special as one usually does not see North sea fish,...
