Visitors explore aquariums, vivariums and terrariums through different ecosystems where fish as well as reptiles and amphibians from the five continents live.
Sheltering animal and plant species with the aim of preserving them and making them known, AQUATIS is involved in national and international programmes aimed at restoring endangered species or safeguarding fragile natural environments. While the Komodo dragon remains one of the aquarium's emblematic figures, the Amazonian piranhas and the Mississippi alligator garpique, a 100-million-year-old species, always amaze both young and old.
The scenographic performance of the site, both interactive and educational, is at the heart of this tour and immerses visitors in an intimate experience, highlighting the true stars of AQUATIS in spaces reproducing their natural habitat.
One of the important roles of modern zoological institutions is the direct involvement in the conservation of endangered species and their ecosystems. AQUATIS has been committed to active participation in conservation programmes from the very beginning. AQUATIS Aquarium-Vivarium supports the following programmes: the Mount Mangshan Viper, the Komodo Dragon, the White-faced Saki, the European Cistude and the Gila Monster.
A great adventure for young explorers! Numerous educational workshops, linked to the educational programme in French-speaking Switzerland, are available on reservation and led by our guides. Playful and educational activities in the laboratory and on the tour route on various themes to teach them about and protect our ecosystems and the species that live in them.
Located above the Vennes stop of the M2 metro and at the exit of the A9 motorway, AQUATIS is a unique concept bringing together an aquarium, a vivarium, a hotel and two restaurants.
