The Sea Life Munich is located between the Olympic Tower and the Olympic Hall. Covering a total area of 2,200 square meters, the aquarium provides a home for over 3,000 marine inhabitants from 150 species. Here, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the diversity of the oceans and observe various marine creatures up close.
Sea Life Munich features a variety of tanks representing different habitats. The 39 authentically designed tanks range from inhabitants of the Isar and Danube rivers to the Mediterranean and the tropical ocean. Additionally, you can experience arrow crabs, minnows, red-eared turtles, surgeonfish, and other animals, some of which are threatened with extinction.
Highlight: Underwater Tunnel
A particularly popular attraction is the Sea Life Munich Underwater Tunnel. This extends under a large aquarium, where sharks, rays, and other fascinating marine creatures swim. With the 360-degree view in the tunnel, you'll feel like you're right in the middle of the underwater world.
The aquarium has been designed to replicate the natural environment of a coral reef. You can either walk through the tunnel or comfortably cross it on a moving walkway. Along the tunnel, you'll find informative boards and interactive displays that provide information about the various marine inhabitants, their habitats, and behaviors.
For Children and Families:
A visit to Sea Life Munich is well worth it for families with children. The aquarium offers not only child-friendly exhibits but also a variety of interactive activities. Another highlight is the touch pool where children can experience the marine world up close by touching starfish, crabs, lobsters, and anemones. With changing themed weeks, the aquarium ensures constant variety. Each week focuses on specific marine creatures or environmental aspects. The interactive stamp trail, on the other hand, provides plenty of fun and adventure while the little explorers gather exciting information about the marine inhabitants.
Sea Life Munich also aims to promote awareness and understanding of ocean conservation. Through the informative exhibition, you can learn more about the threats marine habitats face and how you can contribute to protecting the seas.
