Good to know
SEA LIFE Timmendorfer Strand is barrier-free and has an elevator, which makes all levels accessible. Of course there is also an appropriate WC, which can be used with a wheelchair.
All visitors with a "B" in the handicapped ID may bring along an accompanying person free of charge.
A regular ticket is necessary for yourself. Of course you can buy this ticket our online shop.
Since our aquarium is housed exclusively inside the building, your visit is independent of the weather and is great fun at any time of the year - protected from rain and snow and sheltered from the sun on hot days!
Dogs and other animals are not allowed in the exhibition. However, duide dogs are welcome.
Of course you are allowed to record your dive in our underwater world on photos and videos. These may also be shared on social media and sent to friends. However, please make sure that the flash is off when taking pictures, as this could harm our residents.
We are child-friendly!
SEA LIFE is barrier-free and child-friendly. Entrance for infants under three years of age is free of charge. Please note that children under 15 years of age are only admitted when accompanied by an adult.
The most fun to visit is for children between the ages of 4-11 years, but that depends on their interests of course. In general, there are many exciting things for young and old to discover and interesting and new things to learn at interactive stations.
Did you know: Many of our pools and aquariums are at ground level, so the little ones have a clear view of our animals.
The restroom (with barrier-free access) is located at the entrance to the exhibition. There you will also find a changing facility.
In the terrace area there are a few covered lockable parking spaces for baby carriages. Please note, however, that this area can only be offered according to demand. Of course it can happen that all parking spaces are occupied. Parking the baby carriage is at your own risk; no liability can be accepted.
If necessary, you can take the baby carriage with you into the aquarium due to the barrier-free construction. Please be considerate of other guests and make sure that they also have a free view of our tanks.
