Go on a fascinating trip into the lakes and water courses at AQUA - Northern Europe's biggest fresh water aquarium -built in and around large outdoor lakes. See what happens in the deep of the lake where otters and ferocious fish hunt, and ducks dive. Follow the grass snake, the racoon and all the other animals occupying the habitats of water courses and big lakes. Have fun at the water playground in the AQUA Park.

Aqua is a nice place to spend half a day with your family. Theres a lot of different fish and animals to look at and even play with. The playground is a good place for kids to hang out. Attraction is placed in great surroundings with calm atmosphere. I would go there again.

Nice and family friendly. If you like otters, you should go there xD Go with your family, go with your kids, go with your friends. But avoid rainy days since parts of the fun goes on outside.

I am a Marine Biologist living in Hawaii, and I thought I couldn't be impressed with something like this ... I was wrong. Incredibly informative, scientifically accurate, friendly English speaking staff, and the kids had a blast on the outdoor playground, zip line, water guns etc. It is a must see in a beautiful Danish town.
