We went to visit this place during our stay in Copenhagen this July. We had really high expectations, because we had heard so many positive things about this attraction. It was not as big as expected and the socalled attractions were a bit disappointing. Both...More

If you are in Copenhagen for long time and have nothing to do, then ok, about 15 pounds for ticket and you there. The aquarium is not big, compare with Sydney, Miami or Dubai, and has actually just one aquarium. Summer time seems to be...More

We were disappointed after travelling to get to the aquarium. I think I prefer the one on St Malo, and the tanks seem bigger there. We did have high hopes, sea lions and whale sharks were promised by the website, but we're not in evidence....More
