The Sea Life Hannover Aquarium

Alongside the Herrenhausen Gardens (across the street from the Great Garden), the Sea Life Hannover Aquarium offers fascinating views of several underwater worlds, with 3,500 square meters (38,000 square feet) of habitats ranging from the local Leine River to the Caribbean and the Amazon.  The aquarium hosts 3,500 underwater creatures in 37 pools, including an 8 meter (26 foot) glass tunnel in which visitors are surrounded by sharks, turtles, fish, and other habitants of the sea.  A tropical plant dome hosts rain forest vegetation and residents, including crocodiles.

We enter and first visit fish of the Leine River.

Next, we visit more serious fish of coastal habitats (no sharks or stingrays in the Leine).

We walk through the glass tunnel, watching fish, turtles, and sharks on all sides of us.

Through the tunnel

A few more displays of beautiful small fish, then on to the crocodiles and the rain forest.

Small, but pretty

Not small, not pretty

Into the rain forest

What a great aquarium, a small location with a lot of displays and information, beautifully crafted and arranged.
