Meet the Radisson Blu Hotel AquaDom, the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium filled with one-million liters of saltwater and houses thousands of fish. With a 11 meter (36 feet) diameter, this monstrous tank has a glass-enclosed elevator through the center of the tank through which visitors and guest can travel up to reach the sightseeing point and restaurant under the glass roof.
The Radisson Blu Hotel AquaDom is said to contain around 2600 fish from 56 different species and is maintained by the Sea Life Berlin (Berlin vacation rentals | Berlin travel guide) Aquarium located next door to the hotel. Two full time Scuba divers are responsible for the care and feeding of the aquarium and its inhabitants, and one can often see them swimming around in full scuba gear with the fish as an added attraction. Sea Life Berlin conducts a Sea Life discovery tour which concludes with the two-story elevator ride through the middle of the AquaDom, during which guests learn about both the tropical-fish inhabitants and the architecture of the Radisson Blu Hotel AquaDom.
