We went to this a couple of days after going to the aquarium at the Berlin Zoo and the Sea Life centre was quite boring in comparison. It's largely aimed at kids and the variety of fish isn't spectacular. The most disappointing part was the AquaDom. We went up with some Irish girls and a member of staff who tells... More

17 euro for a ticket for 30 min walk through several aquariums (including the aquadom in the end of the tour), given that any other museum with huge expositions charges much less felt like a rip off. Can be interesting to visit with kids, but then again, if you don't speak german it might ne a bit inconvenient. In a... More

The AquaDom was a nice "attraction" (I haven't been in a similar place). The Sea Life and its aquariums is an average show. If you have been at the Sea Life resort in Eilat (Israel) or any major Aquarium/sea life resort elsewhere - you'll be disapointed.

We wanted to spend time with our niece and nephew and we were wildly disappointed with every aspect of this attraction. Our experience started with a very rude cashier named Stephanie. Upon entering the attraction you immediately realize this is a very cheesy attempt to provide some level on entertained coupled with a very weak educational component. The AquaDom was... More

OK, so... its not to clean, it's not to nice, it's not to big. It took our children 15 to 30 minutes to go through. It's nothing special and in the end you end up with this strange feeling that you paid too much.

A five story aquarium in the lobby of the Radisson Blu, the aquaDom tour is available for about 25 euros ( there is a reduced price for Radisson guests). There is an elevator that takes one up through the center of the tank to closely view the fish. The hotel elevators also provide an excellent view.

Enjoyed the visit here but without the Berlin travel card discounts I would not have paid 20 Euro. Pretty much the same as all sea life centres except for the Aqua Dome which was actually quite impressive. The whole experience will take up about an hour of your day

I have booked my tickets online so I did not have to wait at the queue. The place is not that big so in 1 hour (max) you have seen everything. There was a big variety of fish, crabs, octapus etc BUT no sharks. In my opinion is was poor. Poor - I was expecting more...

Do buy your tickets online so you dont have to queue up. If you're in any way claustrophobic, dont go in there. Very informative on all kinds of sea /river/ocean life.
