When you first see the haus des Meeres from the street, it's quite striking. We've never visited an aquarium that had 11 floors. However, once inside, it was wall to wall families with a line out the door for entrance. We went on a Sunday afternoon around 1:30 and this was a very popular time. I would recommend going on...

You can spend 1-2 hours in the Haus des Meers if you don't have what else to do. It is quite average, compared to other aquariums around the world. You'd better start from the top, take the elevator to the 10th floor where you can see the hammer-head sharks. You will also have a nice aerial view of Vienna. The... More

The Haus des Meeres is near to Mariahilferstrasse - easy to be found. There are 11 floor full of aquariums and tropical gardens. I can only fully recommend the visit.

We went there with our 3,5 year old sun who loved he place. The various floors are well organized and easy to access and the animals, fish and other species are really interesting to see and they are very well displayed. The food on the roof restaurant was really good and well prepared. The view was also very interesting. I... More

The acquarium is definitely worth a visit. The acquarium, besides marine animals, also hosts birds, monkey and bats. I loved the shark tank and te bats area. The building also offers an amazing view of the city! Another reason to visit the acquarium is that it used to be a flak tower built during World War II. A great example... More

A ten floors building dedicated to the aqua world. The "jungle" section is very nice (3 floors with the view of Vienna behind)

When going to this building, i firstly would recommend starting from the top and going down. There is 10 floors in total. The first 2 are only time based floors if u arrive for an event etc. The first real floors to look at are at the time i was there....bare. A few were full but just as many had... More

It is a very interesting aquarium. Actually, it's a combination between an aquarium and a Zoo. They also have monkeys, and birds which fly near you like you are one of they own, they are not disturbed by your presence. I was very impressed, because I have never seen such a zoo before, a zoo where they simulate a tropical... More
