Sealife Berlin

Aquarium in Museumsinsel & Alexanderplatz

Smile-inducing seahorses, ethereal jellyfish, Ophira the octopus and a marine dinosaur skeleton that can be 'reanimated' are some of the crowd favourites among the 5000 denizens of this rambling aquarium, where visits conclude with a slow lift ride through the Aquadom, a 25m-high cylindrical tropical fish tank.

Also popular are the feeding sessions of rays, sharks, catfish and other creatures that take place between 11.30am and 3.30pm.
