Kattegatcentret - Denmark´s Shark Centre

Get smitten by the sea at the Kattegatcenter

Feel the fear when sharks surround you, paddle a kayak on an icy ocean and fall in love with our clever seals, while they gobble herring and learn the alphabet! Whether you prefer to stay on dry land or jump in at the deep end in a wetsuit, you will find an ocean of experiences both indoors and out at the Kattegatcenter that will leave a lasting impression!

Our daily shark training in the tropical shark tank gives our visitors an insight into the fascinating world of sharks. The large rays dance at the surface, whilst shark fins cut through the water and razor sharp teeth snatch flatfish out of the trainer’s hand. Get up close and risk getting wet, or watch the show from our shark tunnel, where there is only 6cm between you and the sharks.

For our smallest guests, we have a children’s corner and touch tanks inside the center, whilst outside there is our exciting aqua-playground, where they can play, splash, creep and crawl amongst giant sea creatures!

At the Kattegatcenter you can do more than just look through the glass. We have open aquaria where you can experience spray, smells and sounds, and touch tanks where you can “pat” a shark, play hide and seek with flat fish and hold a starfish or a crab in your hand. You can also take the plunge and experience everything up close. More than 250 amazing, colourful species of aquatic animals are waiting to enchant you forever. See you soon!
