Fjord&Bælt is a combined tourist attraction and research institution located at the entrance to Kerteminde fjord.
The Center's objective is through research, exhibitions, school services and activities to convey life in inner Danish waters.
Main attractions are our four harbour porpoises and it is one of only two places in the world where you can watch these whales close. Porpoises are a natural part of the Center's convey offer, but they also are monitored by scientists from around the world, including implement behavioral experiments over long periods.
In 2006, the Fjord&Bælt entered a cooperation with the University of Southern Denmark on the formation of the Danish Research Center for marine mammals. Research Center aims to be an example of how it is possible to develop a modern and independent research organization, with a high quality and ambition.
Besides porpoises we have three harbour seals, fish and many other animals that are involved in the provision of animals and their living conditions in Danish waters. Dissemination focus is the close nature of the environment, nature conservation and history.
Through all senses the guests are ment to gain understanding and desire to have more respect for nature while to get something to take home in the experience and knowledge baggage. Fjord&Bælt wants to act as a "natural-opener" that gives access to an environment and animals not commonly known.
Since Fjord & Belt opened in March 1997, we continually review our shows, so we are still leading in the convey of the ocean and its environment.
The center currently has 15 permanent employees + seasonal help
His Royal Highness Prince Joachim is patron.
