Boasting more than 300 species of marine life from across the globe, the Denmark Aquarium features over 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: Monday to Friday this takes place at 1.30pm and on weekends twice a day at 11.30am and 2pm. The Denmark Aquarium is not large compared to other huge aquariums in Europe but it is compact and well-maintained and it is 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. A new aquarium is under construction and is supposed to open in 2013.
