In addition to a specially built fish tank near the entrance and the deep sea creatures currently exhibited in fish tanks in various parts of the aquarium, creatures collected during a deep sea creature collecting expedition are on display.


Paid event – Exciting Touch

You can touch deep sea creatures at this event, which can be experienced for a limited time only.

Next to the thrill of seeing the strange shapes of deep sea creatures which you usually do not have the chance to see, the cold water of approximately 10 degrees Centigrade will make you shiver as well.
