About the aquarium

Øresund Aquarium is a small saltwater aquarium located close to Øresund (the Sound) at the Nordhavnen marina in Helsingør/Elsinore. The aquarium is part of Department of Biology at University of Copenhagen and is a knowledge-based centre for the marine environment, offering experiences and inspiration for all!

A visit to the Aquarium offers insight into the amazing, and to most people completely unknown, world that unfolds in Danish straits and inlets. Read more about our tanks.
