The Aquarium Berlin was established in 1913. It is amongst the aquariums with the most species with its many freshwater and saltwater creatures, the amphibians, reptiles and insects. A visit is well worthwhile not just for kids!
Around 13000 animals of 1000 different species live in the Aquarium Berlin. They are presented on three storeys in their respective habitats.
Today, many of their natural habitats are endangered which is why the Aquarium breeds animals as well. Their focus is on the complicated reproduction of jellyfish, corals and coral fish.
What makes a visit so worthwhile are the lovely tanks with all the different kinds of fish as well as the reptiles, amphibians and insects that captivate visitors of all ages.
When you come to the Aquarium Berlin come with lots of time at your disposal to take in the richness of it all. A personal favourite of ours is the bridge across the crocodile pond. Even though most of the time they just lazily hang around under the heat lamps it is a special feeling to be so close to them.
The petting basin is very popular with the kids. Here, they are allowed to touch the fish! But be warned, some of the kids got more wet in the process than the fish were themselves.
We put our camera in for a moment and saw plenty of curious fish.
Tip: Consider visiting when the weather is good. It is a little less busy on those days and visitors have better access to the tanks. Don’t arrive late when the weather is bad, it can get really busy!
