Suitable for winter or a rainy day but not that much to see and layout means if there are a lot of people it will feel very crowded and uncomfortable

Dear Ophelia,

thank you for your feedback on Trip Advisor about your visit to the SEA LIFE Konstanz. Sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your visit to our SEA LIFE center.
You express concerns about the number of visitors.

SEA LIFE is a so-called "Indoor - attraction," a closed center. The safety of our visitors is paramount.
We try to control a strong stream of visitors in the Center by instructing our cashiers and our time-controlled door in the first exhibition room. Further improvements are currently being planned. But some of our aquariums are "crowd pullers", so that backlogs can happen. We have no influence on that.

If you have any other comments, please share them with us: slc.konstanz @ sealife.de

Kind regards,

Benedikt Volz

It's pretty small. Kids run through within 15 minutes. Only the end there are pinguines, that kids could watch a litte bit langer, but then it is already game over. Compared the aquarium from zoo, such as Frankfurt zoo, the Sea life is rather small and expensive.

Dear Sir or Madam,

thank you for your feedback on Trip Advisor about your visit to the SEA LIFE Konstanz. Sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your visit to our SEA LIFE center.
You express concerns about the length of stay.

There are over 40 aquariums with more than 2,000 fresh- and saltwater fish at SEA LIFE Konstanz and over 100 different species of other marine creatures .

In addition to information boards, small lectures and an interesting film about marine conservation, especially our younger guests can learn exciting things about sea creatures at the so-called "touchbassin".

Our "Dive Log" is also an entertaining and educational addition to the exhibition. If you have enough time you can calculate about 60-90 minutes for the tour.

In addition, there is also the opportunity to explore the surrounding area of the Lake of Constance in the Museum of Natural History in more detail with your admission ticket. Since this is a day ticket, you can also go and visit the center several times. Many of our guests like to perceive this opportunity in the late afternoon or after lunch.

You express concerns about our prices.
The SEA LIFE Konstanz is an independent company, which has its origin in England. This means that we, unlike zoos, do not receive any government support. Just to ensure that our marine creatures have a natural and healthy environment entails high costs.

We decided to visit Sealife Konstanz on a Friday afternoon in January. We arrived at 2:30 and there was no line at all. We walked right in, and for the most part, we were quite comfortable walking around the exhibits. It wasn't at all crowded like some of the other reviews claim. The variety of species was really nice to see, especially in an Aquarium of this size. The staff were beyond friendly and went out of their way to speak with us and make sure that the children were enjoying themselves. We have Merlin Passes so the visit was free and the items we purchased in the gift shop were 15% off. For us, this was a win and we will likely return very soon.

We (4 friends around 30s) went to this Sealife and i agree that is not huge but is nice and has a lot of nice species (Sharks and Nemo inclusive).

An entrance is 16,5 euros for all day (you can go out and come back) and they have the Sealife itself and this time (do not know if it is occasional or not) they had also an exposition very pleasant and quite big.

16,5 euros can seem not cheap but to maintain the place and all species i think is really adequate.

Also, for 35 euros (or less with some promotions) you have an yearly card with access to 8 Sealifes in Germany.

My husband and I got a private after-hours tour of the aquarium with his co-workers and families as part of a business retreat. It was OK, but not great. If you come from a city with a large and/or elaborate aquarium, this one probably isn't worth your time. If you don't, or if you're traveling with kids who are old enough to enjoy it, then perhaps worth a visit.
