Sylt Aquarium, Sylt

3.6
#5 of 9 in Parks in North Friesian Islands
Opened in 2004, Sylt Aquarium shelters and displays fish from the North Sea, as well as several species of tropical fish whose native habitats are in the coral reefs. Located in the island's biggest city, the aquarium gets all its water via direct pipeline from the North Sea. A small aquarium with big exhibits, the site includes large saltwater pools, which together hold about 2,000 fish. Be sure to walk through the aquarium's main attraction, a glass tunnel allowing visitors to walk right under one of its biggest tanks. Shows are available daily at the feeding tank, and you can watch from the venue's mini-auditorium. An on-site restaurant will help you tame munchies during your visit. Make Sylt Aquarium a centerpiece of your Westerland vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Westerland online trip builder .
