Sylt Aquarium, Sylt
Categories: Zoos & Aquariums, Nature & Parks
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.

In realistic sea environment the swimming pools (are consistently with remnants of the people, as decorated as scrap metal, glass, and ropes,) you are presented mainly in the North Sea local flora and fauna. Informative and without hypocrisy. Just when weather (low pressure), you have everything to look at time in peace and quiet.show original
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.
Timo WitteVery interesting. Inside very cool but also refreshing. If you are used to the warm island air in the summer, you should if necessary something to the above drawing have. The admission price is reasonable, if you compare how many basins so that must be operated / animals supplied. We paid about 2016 €10 per adult and took approximately 45 to 60 minutes to see everything. But I think that is very customizable, you can run through in 10 minutes or several hours before the huge panoramic window of a large basin is set.show original
Xx YyOk! Nicely done but price is steep but because it is rather a small Aquarium. In the Combi-ticket (seals + Aquarium) recommended!show original
Arvid SBeautifully crafted Aquarium. The tour starts in Meresbewohner typical for the North Sea and then continues to tropical fish. In the vestibule there is a small shop with thematically appropriate souvenirs. Next to the building, there is a nice playground.show original
Kim Nürn.Cashier takes very seriously its job, temperamental, but in its own way yet friendly. Price/performance ratio is in order.show original
