one big tank

hotel_radisson_blu041-1
if you have the joy of stepping into the hotel radisson blu in berlin at any point you would be awe struck by what confronted you, this little beauty..
this my friends is the largest cylindrical aquarium ever built and its smack bang in the centre of the hotel, know as an aquadom it is 25m tall and contains about 900,000l of seawater and around 2600 fish of 56 species, and is now very high up on my places to go list.
there is a slow elevator ride in the centre of the aquarium which would appear to give you ample time to photograph the people swimming around the tank, if that’s their job, i want to know what the job title is and where i can apply.
if anyone has had the pleasure of visiting this place feel free to leave a comment or link through to your pictures it would be great to see more images, as there doesn’t appear to be that many online, although some of the ones in peoples flickr accounts are brilliant, as seen here.
if anyone has seen it could they confirm if the people are in the tank 24 hrs a day thank you

  1. That is seriously amazing! Puts the tank I have in mind for our house to shame, I'll have to go see it to get some pointers?!
