In this aquarium you can admire the animals and fish that live in the Øresund. There are ten different tanks, each of them designed in order to create an environment for the fish to live as they would in Øresund itself. Each Monday and Wednesday at 1p you can watch the fish being fed. The aquarium is situated a bit north of Copenhagen, in Helsingør. A visit could be combined with a visit to Kronborg Castle.
