After more than 15 years of operation, AquaDom, which is the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium and part of the DomAquarée complex in Berlin-Mitte, was successfully refurbished and modernised. The upgrading work finished in summer 2020.
For the upgrading work carried out, the water was drained completely from the huge tank. The AquaDom’s fish were moved temporarily to aquariums in the basement of DomAquarée which are operated by the Berliner Gesellschaft für Großaquarien (BGG). The basement contains a breeding and care facility for the fish that is also used during normal operation of the AquaDom. Expert biologists and aquarists provided support throughout the entire process.
