The largest aquarium in Northern Europe, National Aquarium Denmark the Blue Planet acts as home to 450 different kinds of fish and aquatic creatures. The aquarium faces the Øresund strait, and a reflecting pool borders its other sides, completely surrounding the structure by water. Its innovative architecture, inspired by a whirlpool, branches into 5 spiraling arms from the central lobby.
The Blue Planet’s 4-million-litre aquarium, the Ocean Tank, features an underwater tunnel so guests can experience a walk through the middle of the sea as hammerhead sharks, rays and moray eels swim above and below. Meet leafy seadragons, clown fish and other colourful marine life at the Coral Reef. In the Amazons tropical rainforest exhibit, guests encounter wildlife above and below the water’s surface, including butterflies, birds, anacondas and the largest horde of piranhas in Europe.
