Sylt Aquarium, Sylt
(3.4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • On a rainy day, we visited the Aquarium. It is routed through the Aquarium on a sort of tour very pleasant. Systematically the animals of the oceans and tropischeren waters thought through, only with the fish of the North Sea and Anreiner starting, then vorbeiführend,. Impressive obviously the 2 tunnel where it traverses through the large aquarium with sharks, manta rays and other fish. Of course not comparable with those of SeaWorld, it must not be also. Was visually prepared the North Sea Aquarium part with sand dunes and beach. very nicely done. Very pleasant fasting full glazing of the basin, so that smaller visitors have a great insight into the sea fauna. Not so pleasant, I find the "Petting pools" where you z.Bsp can touch stingrays. The stress factor for the animals is certainly high. That is of course a matter of opinion.

  • My daughter wants to every now and again, should probably have something fascinating for children. For me the most beautiful always the caressing rays are, I find the rest not so impressive. Once is enough.

  • 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
