They say online purchase your ticket online and save 40%, but it is still the normal price. We just walked in and then we got the discount!?
It is not that big inside it was very quiet what is nice due covid-19.
We had a good time, but it is not worth the normal full price. During covid-19 all the special experiences are canceled like the Show feedings and touch pools.

Yesterday I got to enjoy a really great trip to Sea Life Oberhausen. To be honest i really wasn't expecting much, maybe a few fish swimming around. I was very pleasantly surprised with what i found. This was my first time going to an aquarium here in Germany. After checking in we started the "tour de aquarium". Each section was very informative about what types of fish were there and their habitats. The interesting part for me was that the signs were bilingual, German and English. As we wandered through I saw that all of the exhibits tried to emulate the natural environments of the fish and other creatures. About Halfway through the tour we came to the big tanks with the rays and sharks, right beside the huge tank with everybody in it. At this point i happened to talk to a young man there named Dominic(Please forgive me if i misspell names) who was very informative about all of the creatures there and throughout the facility. After a while talking with him my group wandered further through and we took a break at the outside pavilion right by the river otters, which made for a great resting place while watching their antics. After our little break we came back to the area with the rays and sharks, where i happened to meet Nina Nina was a doll, she was very friendly and informative, and i enjoyed my talk with her. Dominic and Nina are both really great people to talk to because not only do you get your questions asked but they also provide enough additional information to answer questions that you didn't even know you had, LOL All of the exhibits were well maintained, and constructed in such a way as to maximize viewing of the creatures inside. At the end of the tour is a large viewing area that you can sit down and observe the great tank where everyone lives. As we were there i happened to see Dominic and he was able to talk at length about each species and the interactions of the different species together. I have to say that Dominic and Nina both were very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic about what they do. They both showed a flair for not only understanding the questions but were able to answer them in such a way that at no time were the questioner made to feel inferior or unintelligent for not knowing something. All of the personnel that I interacted with were very friendly and courteous and i do apologize for not having everyone's names. They added an extra layer of enjoyment to an really great trip. The only real problem I had there was that some of the changes in the flooring weren't very clearly marked, to me, that could be a trip/fall hazard. Everyone in the group enjoyed our visit as well and we look forward to going back again soon.

1)One should buy tickets exclusively online, we had to wait 90 min outside in the queue. The others marched through without waiting

2)The children were absolutely enthusiastic, me not so, but it was not for me anyway

3)For me, a kind of rip-off. As soon as you are in, a nervous lady , is offering you photos for 8 euros and the rest also costs, there are everywhere offers with costs, very pity and in addition to the entrance fee of 60 euros. The whole walk takes no longer than 30 minutes

There are some things that are not ideal in this aquarium. I only want to mention a few points of criticism here: Contrary to the information on the website, there was no express entrance. You had to stand in line though having an online ticket that was already printed out and wait until the customers in front of you paid their tickets in cash or by card, which took quite a long time. Then, one could walk a rather crowded loop in the narrow building, where the temperature was very warm and the stuffy air did not make the visit a pleasure. A lot of prams blocked the passages and it was not possible to overtake the visitors who were walking in front of you.

A very beautiful place that is worth visiting. There are English translations on almost everything making it easier for non German speakers. 10/10

It is a fun experience, it is not that big but well maintained and fund to enjoy. It takes you two hours only to get through it.
With the high number of foreign people visiting here (especially from Belgium and the Netherlands), you would expect more knowledge besides German.
