Haus des Meeres is located in the street exiting the famous Mariahilferstrasse, i.e. the very Vienna center. The ticket costs 15 euros for adults and you have to pay significantly cheaper for children. Apart from being an aquarium, it is also a terrarium (therefore an aqua terra ZOO) and the home of this guy.

Study the feeding time schedule for individual animals on the Haus des Meeres’ web site. I recommend observing the python strangling a rat and swallowing it whole. Quite a stunning scene.

The jelly-fish window – this is a rare sight at aquariums because jelly-fish are difficult to grow and their life-span is not that long.

Sharks are located on the top floor as the aquarium’s greatest attraction. They have a dirty look, but what do you care, you can always tease them while snacking on the Goldfish Snack Mix.

Steve Irwin, watch out!

This is a fantastic kids’ attraction – an air dome inside the aquarium which you can enter via a tunnel. This is what the kids talk about over and over again after visiting Vienna.

The seahorse is an exceptionally demanding creature regarding the sea temperature, purity, surrounding lighting, flora and a thousand other factors, thus the seahorse tank maintenance assembly is ten times bigger than the tank itself.

Various types of monkeys are free to hop all over the surrounding trees and roam among the visitors somewhere on the fifth floor, where there is a simulated jungle.

Nemo is just one of the endless amount of colorful fish we actually could recognize…

There is a terrace on top of the Haus des Meeres, providing a stunning view of entire Vienna. Much better than the view from the Giant Ferris Wheel at the Prater Park.
