Shark at Denmark Aquarium © Björn Söderqvist
Boasting more than 300 species of marine life from across the globe, the Denmark Aquarium features more than 70 aquariums with the largest containing 85,000 litres of water. There is also a biological museum with interactive themed exhibits for children and a touch pool for the little ones to enjoy. Other facilities include a café where visitors can take a break and get meals, treats or hot drinks, with lovely views. A good time to visit the aquarium is during feeding times: check the official website listed below to find the various times. The Denmark Aquarium is not large compared to other huge aquariums in Europe but it is compact, well-maintained and a wonderful attraction for the whole family; kids lap up a few hours spent in this magical underwater world, which makes a good break from traditional sightseeing in Copenhagen.
