Den Blå Planet
Copenhagen's newest attraction, The Blue Planet aquarium, opened in March 2013 in Kastrup, 8-9 kilometres from the city centre. It was replacing the old Danmarks Akvarium (Denmark's Aquarium) which was built in 1939 in Charlottenlund.
The Blue Planet is the largest aquarium in Northern Europe. It consist of 55 tanks (the largest is 7 metres high and contains 4 million litres of water) with more than 20,000 fish and ocean animals from all over the world. There are fish and animals from the sea around Denmark and from the Danish lakes, but also more exotic specimens like sharks, rays, turtles, barracudas, moray eels - and a rain forest section with piranhas, anacondas, and beautiful butterflies...
Amazing place, and one of the top attractions in Copenhagen. But as mentioned it is newly opened and can be rather crowded!

A whole lotta fish!
Just outside Copenhagen you'll find the National Danish Aquarium!
A great exhibition with all kinds of sealife. The visit will take you about 2 to 3 hours. Of course it can be longer but we spend there about 2 hours and I would say that was enough.
Click for some nice fish!

Everyone visting Copenhagen...
Everyone visting Copenhagen rushes off to find the countries most famous fish - 'The Little Mermaid'. Whilst others are off looking, why don't you get yourself along to Danmarks Akvarium and see some real fish!
After spending some time snorkeling/diving in Australia, you'd half expect to turn around and say that there ain't much that you haven't seen of an aquatic nature . . . Well, how wrong could I be?
The Aquarium itself has a good set-up. There are so many types of fish to see, and the owners have obviously spent a lot of time and money to try and give you (and more importantly the fish) the feel of their home surroundings.
I was impressed with the historic 'Walk through time' which showed you how the fish have developed over their billions of years in existance! Oh, and the biggest bonus was that most of the information is in English.
Look, just go there if you cannot do anything else ... it's not that bad, but I would not suggest it.
The outside pic expressess all the sadness you can also feel inside.
