Freshwater Aquarium area
The centre of our exhibition is a unique aquarium area, which has next to 26 big and small basins and an inimitable fluvial topography a special highlight: a 100.000 litres basin. Our freshwater aquarium area is the biggest and latest one for local freshwater fish species in Germany. More than 50 fish species can be spotted in the Müritzeum.
Outstanding object is a big aquarium with over 100.000 litres capacity. It shows a big shoal of 350 whitefishes which swim elegant in silvery light. The plexiglass window in this basin which is the biggest produced in Europe so far, has a weight of 11 tons and a thickness of 27 cm and can only be cleaned by a diver. This highlight can be seen once a month and is an attraction especially for children.
An over 20 metres long aquarium fluvial topography with 7 staged basins delivers an insight into the fast set of the streaming waters which is arranged from the fount to the estuary. Our visitors get an impression of a “living” river with a simulation of typical stream and a close to nature arrangement with roots, stones and water plants.
Our young and old visitors can cruise themselves with controllable model boats over an imitation of the Müritz. You can learn how a lock works as there are many of them in the Mecklenburg Lakes.
An 8 metres wide and 3 metres high panel gives the visitors the chance to have a view into two big outside basins. The water theatre is partly outside and our visitors have a wonderful view over the lake Herrensee.
