Sylt Aquarium, Sylt

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.

  • After the initial shock over the price of admission, the Petting pool were very nice. But The exhibition is rather small and clearly too expensive for that.

  • I've seen still nirgens rays that emerge long with 1/3 of her body and then - away schwimmend-slide on the back. The most important North Sea inhabitants there. sometimes in excessive number. For more pool space there is no House. I think reduced €11 for too high.

  • A nice place to visit in sylt. Not so big but good with varities of aquarium fish. The most attarctive is the one big tank with giants in it
  • I had a good time and liked it's old-school charm. Nothing interactive or snazzy, but it was great fun seeing local and foreign sea creatures. We were done in 45 minutes and 13€ per person is quite steep, but I enjoyed this a lot.
  • This is a nice aquarium and it's put in really nice surroundings.
  • 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.
  • Personally, I find little small the Aquarium. We were through in half an hour and had looked at everything. I must say that it was very empty, about 10 people. Tolle animals but my opinion on narrow Habitat when you consider where they otherwise life!
