Extremely disappointed with the attraction, only German language guides and reading material. I got it, is Germany, but tourists from other countries also visit the site. Anyways, small aquarium, small variety of sea life. Took us less than one hour to walk the entire place. The price was pretty accurate for what you get.

The place is set up as a long hallway with curves and things to view. Making it narrow and uncomfortable (especially with a stroller). You can rush people... More

We went there since Legoland offered the ticket for an extra euro 7. So why not....need to keep the kids busy. Already mentioned by other reviewers: Although we had purchased the combi ticket, at Sea Life, we still need to wait in line at the VIP section to get the actual VIP tickets. The waiting time is probably shorter than... More

This sea life is just as any other sea life elsewhere in the world. Its nice that you can buy a combi ticket online with Legoland for some discount.
