How big is a Sperm Whale?

How small is a Seahorse?

Does a Lumpsucker suck lumps?

Why are Sturgeon extinct?

The Multimar Wattforum Centre answers all the questions about the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park and conveys guests through the fascinating underwater world of Germany’s largest World Heritage Site – the Wadden Sea National Park.

The Multimar has 37 big and small aquariums displaying the creatures of the Wadden Sea; a total of more than 280 species of fish, crabs, mussels and snails. While Sturgeon, Thornback Ray and Catfish majestically swim by, the Lobster would rather hide in its cave and the Seahorse among the algae. more...

Whales - the gentle giants of the sea

The Multimar invites you to dive into the world of whales and look a Sperm Whale in the eye. This Sperm Whale was stranded in the Wadden Sea a few years ago; it is a bull, 18 metres long, weighed about 45 tonnes and was 28 years old. On one side of his head you can see some scratches which could be the result of a fight with a Giant Squid. And on the other side you can touch the skull, jaw and teeth. Around the Sperm Whale there are ten chambers giving information about Porpoises. These small relatives of the Sperm Whale are more of a human size – 1.80 metres. In the Wadden Sea they are specially protected.
