The AquaDom Explosion Turns The Radisson Into A 'War Zone'


The Aquadom explosion turns the Radisson into a "war zone." A German lawmaker staying at the hotel said this after being woken up by a loud noise and thinking it might be an earthquake. Aquadom is a famous aquarium with a million liters of water that is in the lobby of the Radisson Blu hotel in Berlin.


There are shards (of glass) everywhere. The furniture, everything has been flooded with water. It looks a bit like a war zone.

According to the police, the damaged businesses included a Lindt chocolate store, several restaurants, and an underground parking lot next to the hotel. A fire department official said that building safety experts are looking at how much damage there is to the hotel.

The Aquadom is a huge aquarium that houses 1,500 fish. This aquarium is 15.85 meters (52 feet) tall and has been called the world's largest free-standing cylindrical aquarium.

Photos show huge pieces of broken glass all over the lobby of the hotel, and people who were there said they first thought a bomb had gone off when they heard loud bangs before 6 a.m. when it exploded. A representative from the Berlin fire department said that the amount of debris thrown out during the event made it impossible for emergency workers to reach the bottom level. Search and rescue dogs were sent to the area.

Two people were hurt by glass shards, the Berlin Police said on Twitter. Meanwhile, the German public and the state-owned international broadcasting agency reported that all 400 people who were staying at the Radisson hotel have been moved to another hotel in Berlin, where they are waiting to be picked up. The police say they are looking into what happened, but it is thought that the recent cold weather could have caused the tank to break.


The aquarium of the AquaDom Berlin which is located in the Radisson Collection hotel, Berlin, collapsed. As far as we know to date, no guests were injured and together with the authorities we are looking into the cause of the incident. We have immediately closed the hotel until further notice and are relocating guests.

The aquarium was last modified in 2020. One of the best parts of the place was the 10-minute elevator ride through the tropical tank.

On the other hand, PETA, an animal rights organization, stated on Thursday that the aquarium has become a sanctuary and a "death trap" for the fish that live there. They said:


This man-made tragedy shows that aquariums are not a safe place for fish and other marine life.

One of the visitors was shocked about the incident. Iva Yudinski, an Israeli tourist who was staying at the hotel, was shocked by what happened.


Just yesterday we watched it and we were so amazed (by) its beauty. [But] suddenly it’s all gone. Everything is a mess, a total mess.
