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 100 different fish species: take a journey through the Amazon Jungle with its piranhas and creepy reptiles.
