Aquarium Berlin finally welcomes guests again

Historic building reopens with longer hours

Berlin’s most diverse attraction is back! Almost 15 weeks after its closure to help curb the spread of the coronavirus, Aquarium Berlin opens its doors once more from 27 June 2020. Guests can now dive back into a colourful underwater world, encounter primeval reptiles, and marvel at some of the planet’s most curious creatures in the insectarium.

To stagger the stream of visitors, the Aquarium will now close one hour later, at 7 p.m. “I am delighted that we are able to offer Berliners another piece of normal city life by reopening the Aquarium,” says Zoo and Tierpark Director Dr Andreas Knieriem. “But of course, a responsible reopening is only possible if new hygiene and conduct regulations are observed.” 

Just like with the Zoo and Tierpark, guests may only visit the Aquarium by purchasing a ticket online in advance for a particular time slot at Annual pass holders must also book their visit online in advance (using the same link). The regular on-site ticket desks remain closed, but annual passes can be purchased and extended as usual by Zoo Berlin’s Lion Gate entrance. In general, a minimum distance of 1.5 metres must be observed between visitors, and the glass panels should not be touched. In addition, all Aquarium visitors aged six and over must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth. Commentated feeding sessions cannot take place at this time, but the Aquarium café also reopens on the 27th.
