School classes in Aquarium Berlin

Lively biology classes in Aquarium Berlin – making learning about animals fun!

In accordance with the respective class levels and to match the curriculum, Berlin Aquarium offers guided sessions across a variety of themes and projects. The experience-oriented lessons in the Aquarium are particularly suitable as hands-on learning experiences outside of the curriculum since the proximity of the students to the animals enables the gathering of both technical and biological as well as social and emotional experiences. Scientific knowledge can therefore be gained in an influential manner.

You can book our guided sessions as either teaching units, project work or as part of a field trip – you are also welcome to do so in English on request.


You can find a topic overview of our guided sessions listed depending on the year group and on the teaching units of the Berlin framework curriculum. Of course, you are also welcome to agree topics with us on an individual basis. All events generally concern themselves with nature and species conservation
