Sea Life München

Interactive large aquarium in Munich, which sees itself as an ambassador for the oceans and is committed to the protection and preservation of species.

Description

At SEA LIFE Munich, visitors embark on a breathtaking journey from the Isar to the Black Sea, from the Mediterranean to the tropics. The highlight is the glass tunnel. Surrounded by 400,000 litres of water, the visitors dive dry-footed under Gonzales, the only sea turtle in Bavaria, the blacktip reef sharks and other reef dwellers.

The regular feeding times allow guests to help feed freshwater fish or rays, visitor guides inspire with stories about the sea dwellers and so-called "touch basins" await young and old. Here you can experience for yourself how sea anemones or empty shark egg shells feel like.

The SEA LIFE large aquariums see themselves as ambassadors of the oceans. Visitors learn in a fun and entertaining way how to contribute to the protection and conservation of our rivers and oceans.
