Haus Des Meeres - Review
Managed by Aqua Terra Zoo, the Haus des Meeres is a public aquarium in Vienna that abounds in entertainment and recreation. This aquarium houses atleast ten thousand aquatic beings housed inside an area of around 4,000 square meters. Of special interest to see here would be the tropical freshwater and saltwater fish, along with the Mediterranean and domestic waters sharks. As you visit this aquarium, don’t forget to see the 150,000-liter tank for the hammerhead sharks which is located on the tenth floor of the former anti-aircraft tower. This is a popular attraction especially with the kids who can have the best of fun and acquaintance of marine life here. Towards the end of your visit, do visit the café on the 11th floor that offers beautiful views of Vienna.

Haus Des Meeres, Vienna Reviews
It's astonishing what they fit into that tower. The problem is accessibility. Too many people, super slow elevator. Price is a tad too high. They do have a great selection of sea life and some creative ideas of set up but compared to the zoo it's just not even coming close and the admission doesn't justify it. Still on a rainy day it's worth checking out.
Beautiful place, our kids enjoyed it very much. We spent over2 hours and loved it! Would recommend to anyone visiting Vienna. Please consider a family pass, it's pretty expensive for a family to enter.
This is actually a really underrated sight in Vienna and a beautiful project. Situated in one of Vienna's Flak Towers, Anti-Aircraft gun towers erected by the Nazis in plain WWII, it now houses an amazing aquatic zoo and attracts tons of families. It's a great choice if you are in Vienna with kids. I'd recommend to get an online ticket upfront, as it let's you skip the line. Otherwise you should plan in quite some time queuing up for your tickets, especially on weekends. For locals a yearly ticket surely pays off, as you can also skip the line and just hop in for an hour. However, if it's a one time visit with kids and you want to get the most out of it, it's probably smart to take the elevator up and walk down again. The view from upstairs is amazing and in some parts of the zoo, you'll also find birds and monkeys.
This is Vienna's official aquarium, housed in a former air defense tower ( for all history enthusiasts). The zoo itself is pretty neat, alternating between biotope Aquariums from different regions and large open rooms where birds, monkeys and turtles run free and the visitor can admire them from mimicked jungle canopy walks. The Outlook from the upper floor terasse is also a nice perk. Definitely worth seeing with children, adults...only if you really love this kind of attraction, the entrance is around 20e for adults....if you're not insisting on seeing fish, the Vienna zoo is a nicer walk.
Impressed! Spent 3 hours there. 11 flours or different species. Even piranhas and anaconda. Caffe with an amazing view on the top floor and kids playground just outside. If you have Vienna pass you’ll get a free DVD at the entrance
