Oresund Aquarium (Oresundsakvariet) Tours and Activities

The Øresund Aquarium (Øresundsakvariet) is a small, yet lovely, saltwater aquarium with a special focus on the local Danish fish and marine invertebrates. The aquarium, which is part of the University of Copenhagen, is located on Øresund Sound (the body of water separating Denmark and Sweden). Saltwater fish and all kinds of bottom-dwelling animals from the Sound live at Øresund Aquarium, which has two large ‘touch pools.’ Brave visitors of all ages and sizes can stroke their fingers on crabs, sea anemones, and sea urchins. One of the pools is divided into three different heights, so is particularly suitable for children. At the larger pool you might get lucky enough to touch a stingray or a little shark, but only under the guidance of aquarium staff.

Marvel at the big panoramic aquarium’s perfect environment for cod, catfish, rays, and sharks from the deep waters of the Sound. Although the aquarium is small enough to see everything in an hour or less, the displays are well organized and wonderfully presented. This aquarium would be an especially nice place to visit with small children who might get overwhelmed by a larger commercial aquarium.
