  • We didn't have such high expectations, but we seemed all 8 (10-49 years) to sea life surprised positively. It was not large, but cozy and there are a number of aquariums. We were there right when they opened, and I believe that we must strive to achieve. We had a lot of it for ourselves and had plenty of time for each Aquarium. But don't think the experience would have been equally positive, if we had come later and there had been many people, because the corridors are not as great and it probably will be very cramped with many people. AquaDom is also fine and impressive, and a nice way to end the visit on. Their system at the entrance one can in turn become quite annoyed about, since it's not super efficient and it took a good while to get in even though we were some of the first! So dare not think of if there has been a great many people in the queue ...

  • I'm always happy there again. It is very interesting. Perfect for rainy days and field trips for students.

  • The Aquarium is well done and fun to visit. Very oriented education of more and less young to conservation of the species and the environment. AquaDom is unique in its kind to do absolutely.

  • the aquadom is a good location for children. it is well built and very big. You can see the sealife and small lessons for children are also organised
  • It was a bit smaller then expected, but the tanks where nicely presented and lots of interesting sealife ...
  • Good aquarium for kids; several species like sturgeon, sharks, and octupus. Touch pond with shrimps:) in the end, you "dive" up in a aquarium with a an amazing diversity of tropical coral reef fishes. Kids love it
  • One of the most overhyped and dissapointing experiences of Berlin! Took my 4 yr old son to see some Sea Life. after waiting in Line on the sidewalk in the Cold for almost 40 (!) minutes we finally got to enter. What we found inside was a Dark, Cramped & Overcrowded maze with different sized pools, some even had fish in them (though none are bigger than you see in the supermarket). almost every tank had a big crowd in front of it with people constantly pushing their way forward. no place to sit, no place to hang your coat and NONE of the unique SeaLife you actually want to see, no octopuses, no sharks, no squids no marine mammals just Lots of Grey fish. (there was one jellyfish tank, just one) After finishing the round (about 25 mins) you get to wait again (about 30 mins!) for a ride on the AquaDome elevator. 5 minutes of going up & down through a big cylinder tank with fish swimming around. meehhh... Overall this is a totally Passable attraction, a waste of your time an money... if you are with small children you will have a much better time even at IKEA... unless waiting in line is your thing.
  • This place is not good and not bad.. not even complete creature there, better you just go to aquarium in zoologischer garten. But if you want to see huge aquarium and go inside maybe you could try this place.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
