“Small and yet impressive”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

This small aquarium is a recurrent focal point in our visits to Hannover. The main exhibition covers many different types of fish from different biotopes, and does not miss on the essentials: clown fish, sharks, rays of several kinds, octopus, jellyfish, and many, many more.
Above the main tank there is also an exhibition of tropical forests, where piranhas and crocodiles are also on display.
Finally, they have a section with temporary displays. The most recent one we have seen showed all kinds of jellyfish big and small in black light, which made them glow beautifully.
The queue can be long at times, so get a reservation online in advance if at all possible. The official price is a liitle bit steep, but it is fairly easy to get discount coupons to have one child free if one of the parents pays the full fee.
Food is not available during the visit, only at the end. However, with your ticket you also get a stamp on your hand that allows you to come back in if you want to have a bite.

“Not worth the high entry price / viel zu teuer”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

I was shocked when I realised how much money they wanted for me and my son (26.50 Euro) but had promised my son to go so I could not just turn back. There was no waiting time to get in but inside we got stuck at an aquarium tunnel as it was feeding time and the tunnel was quite narrow. With this we managed to drag out our visit to about 45-50 minutes but there was simply not enough to see for this amount of money. I would recommend the Sea Life in Berlin (with the special aquarium lift at the end) at any time but not this one.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Have been waited in long line, but cancelled because of the high rate of entrance ticket. Wondering why so expensive for relatively small attraction.
