Meet the Wadden Sea’s

biggest predator!

The seals are trained and fed daily at 11:00 and 14:30. Our educators have a host of great stories, facts and knowledge to share with you about the seals.

In the sealarium you can watch the seals in their own element through the huge underwater windows, and go on a voyage of discovery through the many windows at child’s-eye-view height. You can also watch the seals above the water, when they lie on the beach and enjoy life.
The sealarium takes its inspiration from the Wadden Sea, which boasts both common seals and grey seals.

Seal training and commentary every day at 11:00 and 14:30

At their training lessons, you can watch the seals being trained and fed at close quarters. You will also hear some great stories and information about the seals from our educators. The narrative is in both Danish and English.
We train our seals several times a day to give them mental and physical exercise. It is important that we train the seals, so that they become used to us handling them in the course of our daily work, which helps us to keep them fit and well. For example, these large predators allow us to open their mouths to check on their teeth. This requires a great deal of trust from both the seals and the trainers. It is also our ambition that the training will eventually enable the seals to be used in research projects which will help us towards a better understanding of wild seals in Danish waters.
