This new-generation aquarium was inaugurated in Lausanne in 2017. Aquatis displays about 10,000 fish, a genuine invitation to travel to the five continents and to wonder about the fragility of our beautiful blue planet.
Located above Lausanne, Aquatis is definitely not a traditional aquarium. Dedicated to freshwater species, it takes visitors on a tour on the water, from prehistoric times to today, and from one continent to another. Some 10,000 fish and 100 reptiles and amphibians are featured. These strange and surprising creatures call a modern setting their own. The carefully curated scenography offers digital, interactive and educational contents. During their visit to Aquatis, visitors marvel at the many fish on display, while almost automatically learning interesting facts and figures about the preservation of the beautiful yet so fragile freshwater ecosystems. Aquatis is a complete leisure centre offering a 3-star hotel, two restaurants, a wellness area and a conference centre.
