Feeding times & more

What can you expect from shark feeding?
Monday 10.30 am, Wednesday 3.00 pm & Friday 3.30 pm.

In the big shark tank (on the 4th and 5th floor) you can find black tailed sharks, white tailed sharks, morays, blowfish, countless other fish and our famous ocean turtle named “Puppi”. While we are feeding the fish you can have a closer look at them.

Piranha feeding – Tuesday 3.00 pm

If you want to you can watch the piranha feeding on the 2nd floor (vis-à-vis the elevator) at 3.00 pm and assure yourself that piranhas are not as bloodthirsty and aggressive as portrayed.

Gavial feeding - Saturday 9.30 am

Once a week there is an opportunity to observe spectacular feeding of the rare Sunda gharial in the Crocodile Park on the 2nd floor.
One from our guides is always there to provide a commentary to such an extraordinary experience, and to answer any of your questions.

“Grasp” Nature - Wednesday 2.00 pm

...which you can literally do!
Who wants to touch a shark’s tooth or skin without being in danger?
Who wants to look into a piranha’s mouth?
Who wants to know how a tortoise shell looks from the inside and how it is built?
Where: Viktor-Otte-Saal on the 10th floor

Reptile feeding
Thursday 7.00 pm & Sunday 10.00 am

Every Thursday at 7.00 pm and every Sunday at 10.00 am reptile feeding takes place on the 1st floor of the Haus des Meeres. You can watch poisonous snakes and constrictors when being fed. Also by this event there is one of our guides present to provide a commentary and answer additional questions.

Diving with the Sharks
Thursday 6.00 pm

One of our zookeepers dives into the big shark tank to demonstrate that these fish are not some blood-thirsty monsters at all. By this opportunity we also inform visitors that sharks belong among endangered species and therefore need to be protected.

“Mini-sea” - Friday 2.00 pm

The new microscope show at the Haus des Meeres. 
Have you ever seen baby jellyfish, the eyes of a starfish, spike filled with poison or one-eyed plankton shrimps live? This and so much more can be seen on the big screen whilst sitting on a comfortable chair and listening to the audio-commentary of an animal specialist. 

With this presentation we aim to show our visitors parts of the microscopic sea world. 
Where: Viktor-Otte-Saal on the 10th floor

You can find all the dates in the event calendar.
