This is well worth a visit. The highlight is probably the rainforest area, and the turtle is very impressive too. There is more variety than you’d expect for somewhere called an Aquarium, as there are lots of reptiles (including a huge boa constrictor), insects, fish...More

We enjoyed the visit and it was enlightening .Kids are fascinated by the animals .There are 11 floors if I’m not mistaken and each is more interesting than the other .

Very nice meuseum , 11 floors, while the first 5 floors exhibit beautiful fish, snakes, sea life etc’. The building has a beautiful roof top with 360 degrees view of Vienna , and a small lovely coffee place. Defenitly a must when traveling with kids!

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
