World’s largest free-standing aquarium explodes

by Subhechcha Ganguly

Early on Friday, an aquarium that was 14 metres (46 feet) high burst in a Berlin entertainment complex. In order to repair the damage at the Radisson Blu hotel in the German capital, which houses the enormous fish tank, more than 100 firefighters were dispatched. The “AquaDom,” which is 15.85 metres (52 feet) tall and contains 1,500 fish, has been dubbed the largest free-standing cylindrical aquarium in the world. Police described the damage as being “amazing.” A video showed water flowing into the hotel lobby from an empty tank.

A portion of the structure, which also houses a hotel, cafes, and a chocolate shop, was reportedly damaged as 1 million litres (264,000 gallons) of water leaked from the aquarium just before 6 am, according to the police (0500 GMT). Union Investment Real Estate, the business that owns the AquaDom, stated in a statement Friday afternoon that the incident’s circumstances were “still unclear.”

Although Stralau stated that the incident’s cause was still under investigation, there was conjecture that the leak may have been caused by the frigid conditions. One of the attractions highlights was the 10-minute elevator trip through the tank.

The tank had released a “true tsunami” of water, said to Mayor Franziska Giffey, but the early morning timing had kept many more people from getting hurt.
