Don´t be scared when a curious reef shark is watching you behind the glass pane, it is only an act of greeting. A new attraction in the tropical aquarium is a hammerhead shark couple. You can also meet Nemo and his friends in the sea museum. In addition to surgeonfish, “Kaiserfischen” and prawns are also poisonous lionfish to find. Old boots are waiting for you just as model ships in showcases, which will explain to you from the fishery.

You can find both in the “Ozeaneum”, where you get also impressive information about the underwater world from the Baltic Sea up to the North Sea, till the Arctic Ocean. The “Ozeaneum” is directly at the harbour in Stralsund, where you can´t miss it, because of this modern and beautiful architecture. A few steps from the sailing boat “Gorch Fock” ends your harbour tour with a big salt water pool filled with great shoals. For sure you have seen the surge from the Baltic Sea or the North Sea at the top view. Now its time to see it under the water surface, which is possible in the surge pool. Whales are the biggest animals all over the world this fact is easier to believe when you stay under a model in the exhibitions hall. This hall gives space for a 26 m long blue whale, a 16 m long female humpback whale with a 5 m long baby next to her, a 10 m long killer whale and a pot whale which is fighting with a “Riesenkalamar”. When you are tired from the long way just seize the chance to relax under these big animals for listening their sounds. Photo: J.-M. Schlorke
