The Sea Life Munich Aquarium is a part of the ever popular Sea Life chain of aquariums that you will find across the world. We have been to Sea Life in Melbourne, Porto, Portugal and now Munich, Germany. With Sea Life you know what you are going to get, a well laid out aquarium featuring as much sea life as they can fit in accompanied by information for both kids and adults.

Sea Life Munich is easy to find at Olympic Park

We made our way to Olympic Park Munich on the ever popular Munich Grand Value Hop On Hop Off Tour. Olympic Park is also home to the Olympic Tower which at 292 meters provides a great view of the Munich and the Olympic Stadium which you can also do a tour of.  This tour takes you all the relevant major sights around Munich. See more about the hop on hop off tour HERE.

We caught the Hop On Hop Off Bus at München Hauptbahnhof train station which was only a few hundred meters from where we were staying.

Where do we stay in Munich?

When we stayed in Munich we choose to stay at Meininger City Centre. Meininger featured family rooms, games room, bar, chill out area with free wifi. Meininger was close to a train connection to the airport. The city centre was a 10-minute walk away.

Book your stay at Meininger HERE.

Now back to Sea Life, The Aquarium is located in like a bunker underground or at the least a building built into a mound. Sea Life lets you escape into an interesting underwater world. At Sealife Munchen you will see more than 4000 animals from rivers, lakes and oceans. The aquarium houses these 4000 species in 33 display tanks and ponds. Both our girls loved the touch pool where they could see sea urchins and starfish. They also paused to watch the stingrays being fed.

A special feature is a journey along the River Isar. The Isar River plays an important part in Munich for families in summer and river surfers all year around. You will get to see the river from its spring in Karwedel up till where it meets the Black Sea. This showcases the different species and ecosystems along the Isar.

Sealife Munchen aquarium features the largest collection of sharks in Germany and a giant sea turtle named Gonzales. Our girls particularly enjoyed the fact that kids were given a collect a stamp booklet. The kids had to read the information at different stations throughout the Aquarium and were able to get a stamp at each station showing they had been there. It was also great that the information was also in English. At the end of the tour both the girls had completed their booklet and received a medal at the desk on the way out. Sea Life Aquarium München had a fully stocked gift shop on the way out. We bought a fridge magnet to add to our ever expanding collection.
