Facts and special features

Since 2003 the AquaDome has adorned the lobby of the Radisson Collection Berlin Hotel, which is located in the DomAquarée complex. The 13.8 million dollar (13 million euro) eye-catcher was the highlight of SEA LIFE Berlin and amazed visitors with an enchanting marine world. Although the AquaDome was extensively modernized in 2020 an accident occurred in 2022 which destroyed the huge aquarium...

Stunning underwater world

Covering an area of approximately 19000 ft² (1800 m²), the SEA LIFE Berlin allows visitors to observe over 5000 marine inhabitants in 35 naturalistically designed pools. Although the AquaDome was a stand-alone attraction, it was part of the admission to SEA LIFE. Due to the accident, SEA LIFE Berlin remains closed until further notice, tickets can be rebooked free of charge.

The misfortune

Just before six o'clock, the AquaDom burst on 16.12.2022 for so far unknown reasons. The entire lobby of the Radisson Collection Berlin Hotel was flooded, the water even flowed onto the street. According to the hotel, one employee as well as one guest were slightly injured, also at least six other stores were damaged in the CityQuartier DomAquarée complex, the extent of damage is still unknown. Due to the intensive cleanup, the Radisson Collection Hotel remains closed until further notice.

1500 fish

Once, 100 different species of fish swam in the AquaDome alongside seahorses and jellyfish. With a little luck, divers could be spotted when taking care of the animals. Only a few of the marine animals found under wreckage could be rescued. On the other hand, 630 fish that were in separate breeding tanks placed in the basement of the complex could be completely rescued and were divided among various foster places.

Largest cylindrical aquarium

The 52-feet-high (16 meter) AquaDome, with a diameter of 37,7 feet (11.5 meters), held about 264 000 gallon of salt water (1 million liters). The basin consisted of two cylinders, which allowed visitors to cross it inside a glass elevator. The acrylic construction was made in the USA, some components were already assembled there and shipped to Hamburg. Once in Berlin, they were then lifted into the hotel by crane.

DDR-Museum affected

The water disaster has also affected the DDR Museum - a third of the 13000 ft² (1200 m²) area was caught by water. The ceiling partially collapsed and exhibits were damaged, the extent of damage is still unknown. In 2006, the privately funded museum opened in the DomAquarée building and provided an interactive look at Germany's Socialist Unity Party. The museum remains closed at the moment, with several weeks of cleanup to follow.
