Biodiversity of the underwater world

The Aquariums in the room of biodiversity are comparable with „open windows“, and allow an insight into the underwater world. Discover the fascinating biodiversity and the development of life inside the tanks. During your visit you will see animal species from the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, warm waters, streams, rivers and lakes from temperate or tropical climate zones.
