At Sea Life Hannover, you embark on an exciting journey from the cool North Sea waters through the Amazon rainforest to the coral reefs of the tropical ocean. You can find this marine aquarium in the capital city of Lower Saxony, Hannover, very close to the Herrenhausen Gardens and the Adventure Zoo.

In a total of 40 different aquariums, you can admire about 2.500 animals from more than 160 species. During the tour, you will pass through various themed areas, each adapted to the different habitats of marine life. Among the inhabitants, you'll find a colorful variety of animals, including the Cuban crocodile, chameleons, octopuses, vibrant anemones, crabs, seahorses, nurse and blacktip reef sharks, and impressive sea turtles.


The "Expedition Jungle - Exploring with a Ranger" themed world is absolutely worth seeing. It takes you on an exciting journey, starting from the Turtle Temple through the Insect Touch Station to the Amazon. You'll be accompanied by a ranger who informs you about the biodiversity in rainforests and educates you about the importance of ecosystems.

The centerpiece of Sea Life Hannover is the 300,000-liter ocean tank. In the walk-through glass tunnel, you can observe sharks, colorful fish, and other fascinating marine inhabitants from all sides.

Interactive Experiences

Thanks to its exciting offerings and playful explanations, Sea Life Hannover is also perfect for children. Young marine researchers, for example, have the opportunity to pet rays and sea urchins in touch pools or learn more about the animals' eating habits during daily feedings. Workshops and suitable teaching materials are offered for school classes and interested parties.

Additionally, the aquarium hosts children's birthdays, including treasure hunts. The kids embark on an exciting journey through the underwater world of the aquarium, searching for a hidden treasure among the marine and rainforest creatures. During the treasure hunt, the young adventurers must solve various puzzles, search for clues, and tackle tricky tasks to get closer to the treasure.

Species Conservation and Sustainability

Sea Life Hannover actively engages in marine conservation efforts. Local conservation projects are supported in collaboration with NABU Lower Saxony and Leine Lachs e.V. Moreover, the aquarium operates a coral nursery to contribute to the preservation of endangered coral reefs.
