Experience the largest aquarium in northern Europe in a completely new way – sleep with the sunfish!

With the concept ”Sleep with the sunfish” your group will experience the wildlife of the North Sea and the Oceanarium in a completely new, different and exciting way. Besides having fun, you will learn a lot about the wildlife of the North Sea, go on an expedition in the aquariums and exhibitions – and even join in on the feeding of the animals.

When the day is over, it is time to go to rest next to the Oceanarium and its’ 4,5 million liters of saltwater and hundreds of fish. On the second day, the program starts with breakfast and “sunrise” in the Oceanarium, before we end by saying goodbye to each other. 



Arrival and Welcome
By arrival the guide will bid you welcome and you get your luggage set aside, before we begin the program of the day.

  Introduction to the aquariums and exhibitions by the Relief Map
Following a short introduction to the Oceanarium the students will go on a starfish race in small gropus, where they will solve simple tasks by the seven destinations. Then it is time to discover the exhibition on your own before we gather for dinner. 


Dinner in the Café 

We offer two menus (with salad on the side):

  • Fish cakes with scalloped potatoes
  • Meat lasagna

Menus are ordered in advance – at least 3 days prior to the visit


Preparation of feed
The participants will work in groups, preparing the feed, in the new aquarium kitchen. Each group gets assigned to a feeding place.
When it’s feeding time, the participants will follow the guide around to the aquariums, where each group will do the feeding, while the rest watch.
While the groups alternately ready the feed, the rest will unpack in the Seabed Room


Intro to the Sunfish by the Oceanarium


Preparation for the night and fun
At this point, it is time to experience the Oceanarium and say goodnight to the seals.
