HdM in the Flak Tower
The Haus des Meeres in the Flak tower
The Haus des Meeres is located in the formal anti-aircraft tower since 1957. Back then when the founders of the union were looking for a location for the first sea-water exhibition in Austria, the almost empty Flak tower in the centre of Vienna was the perfect option.
At the very beginning there were only 1 ½ floors. More levels were additionally built with time and nowadays the Haus des Meeres-Aqua Terra Zoo provides an attraction on 11 floors.
