We visited the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe !


We had often thought about going to visit Aquatis since it opened but somehow the price (chf29 for an adult, chf19 for children aged 5-15 and free for children under 5) had seemed prohibitively high. However we were offered a gift voucher by an enterprising friend for Christmas and quickly put it to use!



The parking is covered, huge and right next to the building so access is easy. We went on a day when it was quite busy so it was hard to get close enough to some of the displays for very long but there were places to sit in front of lots of the tank to watch the animals when we got the chance.


We were impressed by the cleanliness of the tanks, the general presentation and atmosphere created and the variety of sea life on display. Jude was really excited to see the crocodile and Alba fell in love with the Komodo dragon and it wasn’t easy to get her away from the glass.



There were plenty of toilets with changing facilities and there is a small snack shop at the exit. Towards the end we passed through a sort of rainforest section with humid air and a nice array of tropical plants which we liked along with the tunnel surrounded by a tank containing the sharks which was impressive.

"It remains an expensive outing for families with older children even by Swiss standards."

The main question we asked ourself on leaving was “is it worth the high price”? We didn’t think so. Yes there are some nice displays, it’s modern, clean, easy to get around and with ample facilities but it remains an expensive outing for families with older children even by Swiss standards.
