The Aquazoo blends an aquarium and a zoo into a concept that bears quite incredible results, both unique and well worth seeing.
The private collection of the chemist Theodore Loebbecke, donated by his widow to the city of Dusseldorf in 1904, was combined with the aquarium in 1948 and both have been consolidating to the present day.
With the aid of many nature and animal species related halls, wall charts and short films, the visitor receives broad information about history, biotopes, mineralogy and physique of several types of creatures existing on the blue planet.
The disabled friendly building invites you to pass through the living spaces of the tropics, deserts, freshwaters or the corals. Many kinds of amphibians, reptiles or insects are on show. For instance crocodiles, butterflies, seals, otters or penguins and no one has to go without seeing sharks or fantastic creatures like the mudskippers and piranhas.
The program offers tours for adults and students alike. Specials such as further education for teachers, children's birthdays or holiday programs for children make the Aquazoo an ideal attraction for both young and old.
