Aquarium Berlin is a stand-alone attraction at Zoo Berlin in Tiergarten Park. We feature Zoo Berlin on a separate page.

You can visit the Berlin Aquarium without seeing the Zoo, but if you buy a combination ticket, you can see both for significantly less than the price of individual tickets.

Built in 1913, it's one of the largest aquariums in Germany. The exhibits take up three floors with over 9000 animals covering 800 species. About 250 plant species integrated into the exhibits provide habitat for the animals and insects.

On the lower floor you will discover fish, coral reefs, jellyfish, seahorses, and the giant 260,000 litre Shark Tank containing blacktip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and nurse sharks.

On the second level you will be intrigued by a large assortment of reptiles in Crocodile Hall. Besides crocodiles, you will discover a variety of turtles, caiman lizards, gharials, snakes and even butterflies.

The top level of the aquarium houses an insectarium featuring amphibians and insects including frogs, ants, tarantulas, and praying mantis.

Be sure to include a visit to this world-class aquarium in your travel itinerary.

Aquarium Berlin Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating The variety of marine life on display was truly impressive, with everything from colorful tropical fish to majestic sharks and graceful rays. The layout of the aquarium was well-designed, allowing for easy exploration of the different exhibits. Each section offered something unique to discover, whether it was the vibrant coral reefs, the mysterious depths of the ocean, or the serene atmosphere of the freshwater habitats. One of the highlights of my visit was the interactive touch pools, where I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the marine creatures. It was a truly immersive experience that brought me closer to the wonders of the ocean. Overall, the Berlin Aquarium is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in marine life or simply looking for a fascinating day out. It's educational, entertaining, and truly awe-inspiring. I highly recommend it to visitors of all ages!

5 Star Rating Aquarium had large tanks lining wall to wall with huge fish and was increasingly fun to look at everything. The upstairs had amphibians and reptiles like the tuatara, caiman and various snakes and lizard species. Very immerse and impressive experience.

5 Star Rating Very well maintained aquarium. Lots of fish including piranhas, sharks, tortoises, snakes from all over the world are placed nicely. The walking corridor is bit narrow and distance between the display is very limited. Only 2-3 people can view at a time and others have to wait. Worth visiting with family. Great learning place for kids.
