Very nice park with great staff and a nice restaurant! Our 2,5 year old had a great time and so did we! Very interesting and not so massive wich makes it feel so much personal! Kids will also love the water playground. If into animals and have small children a must see!

Excellent exhibition with great views. The small kids enjoy touching the fish. They will have great fun outside with the watermachines. A place for the family in all kinds of weather.

We had a great time. I've never been to an aquarium where they have lots of grills available for use and you bring your own sausages to grill for your lunch picnic. Cool!

This aquarium shows life in freshwater (rivers, lakes, ponds..) and their surroundings. Apart from that, it also has displays that focus on the region and the longest river in Denmark (Gudenaa). A large family-based play area completes everything nicely.

This place was a real eye-opener. The aquariums house pretty much every species of European freshwater fish. Normally you never get to see these fish since they are obscured by murky European waters, but here they are kept in pools with excellently filtrated water so you can see them in all their glory. Outside there are otters and other animals,... More

At AQUA you will learn about animals living in freshwater. Bring your family, regardless age, they will all enjoy. As AQUA is both inside and outside, bring suitable clothes.
