Come dive with us and experience the wonderful underwater world of the Zee Aquarium in Bergen aan Zee! Discover the most fascinating fishes, sea animals and shells from all corners of the world!

The Zee Aquarium has been renovated and expanded recently and is now home for over 300 different fish species: take a journey through the Amazon Jungle with its piranhas and creepy reptiles. Travel via the Atlantic Ocean, Tropical waters and the Mediterranean Sea to the North Sea and discover the most spectacular fishes and other sea animals. Be dazzled by seahorses, starfish and clownfish. Stroke a ray at our Ray Reef and stand face-to-face with big sharks and poisonous lionfish.
