Gray seals can be easily seen from the seal centre in any weather. Get to know Lilli, Nemi, and their friends from up close, and watch harbor seals and gray seals on land or through the large underwater viewing window. As the animals are fed, you can hear short presentations about their biology and the station’s mission. In order to ensure that the seals who live in the station permanently stay healthy, feeding times are usually combined with medical attention.

Although visitors can’t get close to the pups in the breeding area, you can still see them via video, as well as from the 17m high lookout tower and the information building. The Seal Information Center explains the biology of the native seals, as well as the risks they face, and emphasizes the correct way to interact with the animals. The underwater area leads to the “Seals of the World” exhibition, which introduces other species of seals like crab eater seals and walruses The children’s active area teaches kids about the seals’ diet and fishing skills through play. A sensory tunnel lets young and old visitors alike touch the large and small inhabitants of the coast and depths of the North Sea. On rainy days, the children’s play area provides plenty of entertainment – as does Kurt, the trained seal.

Lilli and her friends look forward to your visit!
