AQUATIS Aquarium-Vivarium Lausanne is a unique concept in Switzerland and in Europe. It stages live animals with a totally immersive and interactive scenography using innovative digital technologies. It is positioned as Europe's largest freshwater Aquarium-Vivarium.

More than an aquarium or a vivarium, AQUATIS is a discovery of the most fascinating freshwater environments on our planet.

AQUATIS is both a recreation area, an environmental education centre and a platform for exchanges.
