At AQUA, you can see some fascinating Danish animals in wild natural surroundings. Join the zookeeper who will feed the animals and give you plenty of fascinating information. You will see otters, raccoons, wild boar cubs, snakes and many other wild animals. You can also have lots of fun with water - indoors and outdoors. Enjoy hours of fun on the water playground. In the indoors aquarium, you can see fish at the bottom of the pool through the panoramic windows. Touch the fish in the touch pool and explore the exhibitions that are arranged over 4 floors. In our cafe area next to the large playground, you can at and grill your own food - or enjoy a selection of light dishes in the Café Foderbraettet. We serve delicious organic food indoors in the cafe - for lunch and dinner.

This is a fascinating place, where you really learn a lot about the fresh water environment in Denmark and the local area in particular. It has so many fantastic things on display, and not just to see, but feel and experience. The area just around has many great walks in the natural environment

A very interesting and entertaining place to visit with the family. The outdoor play area with all the water activities is fantastic. There is a BBQ and dining area next to the play area which makes it a perfect spot to bring your own lunch and hang out.

This place is really interesting even though you won't find tigers and lions here. However, you will get a good glimpse into how life in the shallow waters and streams of freshwater is in Denmark. I would encourage you to pack some swim-suits (or extra clothes) for your kids and visit this place in warm weather. Outside is an amazing... More

A favorite of ours. Not least because our red-eared terrapin resides there after outgrowing his tank. The native raccoons, beavers etc. are fun, especially during feeding or when they have little ones. Very educational in the aquarium part as well.

Good family destination. Not an ordinary aquarium and zoo but one with breeds native to Denmark. Most of the aquarium tanks are outside but you can look at them through glass inside or from outside, which is original for aquariums. Petting tanks to touch a range of fish. Outdoor animals to view too and nice walk around grounds. Our kids... More

Good for the children, exhibiting everything from otters via trout to birds of prey. All animals local to the area, well and informative presented. Engaging employees eagerly discussing habitats and explaining all details plus answering questions.

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.
