Burgers' Ocean

Burgers' Ocean shows life the way it is at a coral reef in the Indo-Pacific Ocean, one of the richest areas of species in the world. In the otherwise rather poor food supply of the warm seas, life concentrates around the reefs. Because there are so many species of life the ecological niches are narrow, which means that every species has its own speciality. Special colours and strange shapes help the countless fish species recognise their own kind. To people the amazing patterns and bright colours are a joy to look at!

Exploring the tropical coral reef

Exploring the tropical coral reef

Exploring the tropical coral reef starts at the little beach of a tropical lagoon where the water is still quite shallow. Following the path, you go down below the water surface. Through a gap in the reef with mysterious murene fish you come to the coral reef. After a trip to the night-time reefs you look across the edge of the coral reef through an enormous panoramic window into the open ocean's water and find yourself eye to eye with various types of sharks.

The largest living coral reef

The largest living coral reef

The largest living coral reef in aquariums outside of Australia is at Burgers' Ocean. The ecosystem of the coral reef is accurately copied here, which is not at all easy, because corals and anemones make extremely high demands on water quality, the water's flow intensity and the light fall.
