Aquatopia in Antwerp

Aquatopia, Antwerp’s aquarium, is a two-floor adventure through various water environments found throughout the world. This brand new complex has 35 aquariums featuring a fascinating collection of exotic fish and animals in their natural biotope. Sharks, piranhas, stingrays and octopuses.

  • The fish and other sea creatures will take you on a marvelous voyage through a tropical rain forest, along rivers, underwater caves and coral reefs, to the depths of the ocean.

Several interactive spaces add to the joy of the visit, Aquatopia also includes a number of special exhibits covering sharks, nautilus, and mysteries of the deep. Children love these exhibits, making the aquarium a great place to visit on rainy days. Over 250 different species of animals and marine life are kept at the center – you can even touch snakes and iguanas!

A real treat for adults and children, the aquarium enables everyone to learn more about the fascinating underwater world in a relaxed manner. The educational programs, interactive features and multimedia applications will teach you all about the wonders of the water world. A visit is informative and will make you aware of the protection that water and its 'inhabitants' need these days.

My favorite is the aquarium tunnel you get to walk through, its quite magical for our toddler. He loves to go back and forth in the tunnel and point to the different fish swimming by.
