Sylt Aquarium, Sylt

(85+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Opened in 2004, Sylt Aquarium shelters and displays fish from the North Sea, as well as several species of tropical fish whose native habitats are in the coral reefs. Located in the island's biggest city, the aquarium gets all its water via direct pipeline from the North Sea. A small aquarium with big exhibits, the site includes large saltwater pools, which together hold about 2,000 fish. Be sure to walk through the aquarium's main attraction, a glass tunnel allowing visitors to walk right under one of its biggest tanks. Shows are available daily at the feeding tank, and you can watch from the venue's mini-auditorium. An on-site restaurant will help you tame munchies during your visit. A visit to Sylt Aquarium represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Westerland trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful Aquarium, we have spent much time in it, was very relaxing. The basin with the Skate is impressive.

  • Here you can expect too much for the high price of admission, because you run very quickly through the system. There's still plenty to see from the realm of fish and for the children, it is a great fun, to caress the one or the other sea creatures. Anyone can start also again the tour at the end of over... It is a pity that there is no advantage in connection with electoral maps, because the Aquarium is not supported by the town Westerland. Nevertheless, it remains a good alternative in appalling weather...

  • Was a great experience. Beautiful aquarium in Westerland. I felt good and my daughter stroked the rays. An aquarium to be TOUCHED.

  • nicht so große aber typische nordsee aquarium
  • An enjoyable 1 hour out of the bad weather. It's not the biggest aquarium in the world, but then you wouldn't expect it to be. They had a good variety of North Sea fish such as skates, rays, Pollock, dogfish and so forth. Plus a tropical section and then a few sharks about 1.5metres long and some massive stingrays, some evil looking moray eels - all which you can see very well via the obligatory glass walk-through tunnel. Only negative for me, an Englishman, was the lack of any English translations on the fauna descriptions. But my 6 year old nephew and 3 year old niece would have loved it, indeed there were plenty of kids around us enjoying themselves.
  • Very nicely designed aquariums. There are plenty and an impressive variety of Meeresbewonern to discover. On the website, you should look at best before a visit after the dates to show feed. For the sharks that is certainly a highlight ;)

  • A smaller Aquarium. There was not much going on, so you could look at the fish in peace. For spenders: You can list a Combi ticket purchase: seal benches and Aquarium. It was cheaper together! Status: October 2016. have fun.

  • A rather small Aquarium which is nicely done. However wrong value for money! We were less than 40 minutes already and although we have left us really time. I invest $5 more and I can me a few hours to a whole Zoo stop. I am disappointed somewhat
