Denmark’s Blue Planet

March 27, 2015


Copenhagen isn’t short of tourist attractions. Like most capital cities, the Danish capital is the centre for arts, culture, music, shopping and more in Denmark, as well as having a fascinating history and wonderful architecture for tourists to discover.

One of the capital’s most unique attractions, however, is the Blue Planet Aquarium. The Blue Planet is the latest version of Denmark’s National Aquarium in Copenhagen, which was originally built in 1939. The Blue Planet is northern Europe’s largest and most modern aquarium, with a fascinatingly modern spiral design. The Blue Planet is home to over 400 different species, including 20,000 fish and other aquatic animals such as sharks, sea lions, crocodiles, eels and more.

The building was designed by Danish architecture studio 3XN, and the building’s unique whirlpool shape was inspired by the idea of a whirlpool drawing visitors into the deep as they venture further and further into the aquarium.

The Blue Planet is devoted to nature conservation and works to raise awareness on water and marine issues. The aquarium partners with researchers for scientific collaboration and seeks to reduce over-fishing and pollution, as well as preserving endangered species.

The Blue Planet holds over 7 million litres of water and is set over a space of 1500 square feet inside-and-out, so it is impressively huge. The majority of the animals have been transported to Denmark from other countries, mostly from Asia. The largest of these animals is the mighty and distinctive Hammerhead Shark, which can grow up to 4 metres long.

Walking through the Blue Planet is like journeying through several aquatic worlds, with fish and marine animals of all kind in their natural habitat. A true experience for any visitor to Copenhagen, and one which isn’t easily forgotten!
