More than just fish

Did you know that The North Sea Oceanarium also is the venue of concerts and other exiting events? For example we are hosting the Herring of the year-competition, in which restaurants from all over Denmark competes about making the best old-fashion marinated herring. Multiple times a year we also host concerts with different artists. You can read more about these exiting events under Events and concerts on our page.
