Right in the heart of the Mitte district in Berlin is the aquatic wonder known as AquaDom, a massive decorative aquarium that holds a million litres of salt water for its 15,000 exotic fish. The AquaDom is not just an oversized fish tank, however. It is just part of the DomAquarée complex which includes the Sea Life Centre aquarium, a hotel, and a major conference venue. If you want to venture out of this aquatic wonderland, just five kilometres away is Museum Island, where you can explore unique exhibits like the ancient Pergamonsaal at Pergamon Museum.
- Feel like you are under the sea without getting wet, and view more than fifty species of exotic salt-water fish whilst riding the glass elevator inside of the breathtaking cylindrical AquaDom in Berlin.
- Touch and play with hermit crabs and starfish in the Berlin Sea Life Interactive Rockpool, figure out Neptune's mirror maze, and watch divers feed the aquatic creatures during daily demonstrations.
- Enjoy fascinating exhibitions like the 2012 Claws display, featuring some of the most unusual lobsters and crabs from around the world, like Japanese spider crabs and enormous coconut crabs.
AquaDom is eleven kilometres from Tegel Airport, which is scheduled to close in August, 2012. Those flying after August will land at the Berlin Brandenberg Airport, which is a 24 kilometre trip using A113 and B96a motorways. There are convenient (albeit expensive) airport taxis as well as economical minivan group taxis available, and attractions at AquaDom are close together for easy walking. The S-Bahn commuter rail lines 5, 7, 9, and 75 and U-Bahn underground lines 2, 5, and 8 dominate this part of the Mitte district. Additionally, the long distance train station is only a few kilometres away.
