Oresundsakvariet is a small aquarium 10 minutes’ walk from the castle in Helsingor and a great place to spend just over 40 minutes. There are 3 main tanks one of which has fish you can touch. The amount of sea animals is truly astonishing. The...More

1 star, not because it is terrible, but it is really small. It is fine to go there after you visit the castle in Helsingor, but don't expect too much.

The displays are well organized and beautifully presented. The specimens are local, not the usual seen in large aquaria. Even jaded aquarium fans will learn something new. Small area and not too overwhelming for children.
