A home for injured seals and other endangered sea life, marine sanctuary SEA LIFE Oberhausen is open to the public. During peak hours, the aquarium allows only 30 visitors at a time into each viewing area, so visit right at opening to avoid these crowds. All the tanks have inside viewing areas that make a great escape from chilly, rainy weather. Book a ticket online to save time at the door so you can head straight to the seals, turtles, and penguins.

  • As always, there are also very long waiting times. We have avoided using the express ticket. Worth it really. It's in how actually in any Sealife, but alone, the shark breeding worth a visit. 8 son was thrilled. Especially of the tunnel and the dome in the breeding tank

  • The price of €20 per adult is quite expensive for me. Although quite a few visitors there were it is partly very closely in the corridors. The sea life in Barcelona liked us better. Is of course personal feeling.

  • We were on Sunday at the Sealife and had free tickets. Of course, it is very crowded at the weekend. Luckily, we had to stand on our cards do not like other an hour at checkout. Sea life itself is nicely made, the large pool with sharks, giant tortoise and rays is very impressive. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Also the explanations the Fed were very interesting. However, the SeaLife in the whole is quite manageable. Even if we us much time left have, we in two hours "were". For this, I find the normal price of the cards too expensive.

  • I’ve visited the place quite a few times. I enjoyed every visit. The place has quite a collection of fish. Kids enjoyed the interactive stuff as well. Long quest on the weekends so book beforehand. Shark display is good. The big tank is amazing. It’s winds all over the place so you can see fish from above below and literally being inside through glass tunnel. Come by car or public transport. Near a huge shopping mall with a big food court for that after trip relaxation.
  • Nice one off outing for children between 2 and 10. Done in under two hours, even with lingering but worth a visit. Our little one loved it.
  • Very nice aquarium, child friendly and with a focus on preservation as well as education. Our kids (2, 4 & 6) loved it and would go back anytime. There can be a bit of a wait at the entrance, but it ensures that it's never overcrowded inside. If you don't want to wait, you can book VIP tickets online for an extra fee...
  • Very nice sea life aquarium. Lovely animals, beautiful decor and some interactive stuff to do for children.
  • Excellent variety of various marine species. Even sharks can be found!
