The Radisson Blu Hotel’s giant aquarium

Radisson Blu Hotel aquarium 4

(From Inhabitat) Scuba diving in Germany isn’t usually penned into many tourists’ to-do lists – for obvious reasons – but at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin this far-fetched idea becomes a reality with their towering Aquadom aquarium.

A massive construction that looks like it came straight out of a James Bond movie, this incredible aquarium reaches 82-feet high and sits in the heart of the hotel’s lobby atrium.

While guests can’t actually go for a dive in the Aquadom (we know, we were just as disappointed to find out!), they can enjoy the thrill of riding up the transparent glass elevator built into its core.

The Aquadom is the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium.

 

The aquarium is filled with nearly 1 million liters of seawater and has 1,500 tropical fish of 56 species and tiny reef-like mounds at its base.

The aquarium is managed by the Sea Life Berlin Aquarium located next door to the hotel, and two full-time scuba divers are responsible for the care and feeding of the aquarium and its inhabitants.

Guests can often see them swimming around in their scuba gear with the fish.
