What kinds of fish are there?There are hundreds! Over 5,000 fish live in SEA LIFE Berlin, with 1,500 creatures from 97 species in the AquaDom alone. The most popular species at the aquarium include sharks, rays, seahorses, clownfish (yes, you can find Nemo here!), and the common sea dragons.
What’s the Aquadom?The AquaDom was built in 2004 as an attraction of its own in the atrium of the Radisson Blu Hotel in the DomAquarée complex in Berlin. It’s a 25m tall tank filled with 1,000,000 liters (260,000 US gallons) of water, and it’s home to 97 species of fish - which need over 18lbs (8kg) of food! Inside the tank, there’s a glass elevator which slowly takes guests up to the heights of the tank and down again so that they can feel like they’re swimming along with the sea creatures.
Can we feed the fish?Please don’t feed the fish! Their diets are carefully controlled by the aquarium staff, who make sure they’re only eating things that are good for them. You can learn more by visiting certain tanks at feeding times, which vary day by day. Feedings begin at 11.30 am, but most of them are from 1.30 pm onwards. If you still want to get up close and personal with some sea creatures then make sure to stop at the interactive rock pool where you’ll get to touch anemones, starfish, and other animals which make their home in the sea’s shallower waters.
What age group is SEA LIFE best suited for?The AquaDom & SEA LIFE Berlin is best enjoyed by children aged 4 to 11, with tanks that extend down to their eye level. There’s nowhere to leave strollers, but SEA LIFE is accessible both to wheelchairs and strollers, so you can take them with you in the attraction. The only area where strollers aren’t allowed is in the AquaDom lift, you can leave them at the bottom and collect them when the ‘ride’ is over.
