If you know my son, you know he loves sea creatures. He may be in an insect phase at the moment, but the underwater world is his first and deepest love.
As luck would have it, Sea Life Berlin is within walking distance of my brother-in-law’s house. I’m familiar with the Sea Life aquarium brand from our breathtaking trip to Bangkok Sea Life Ocean World last year, which was the most spectacular aquarium I’ve ever visited. Seriously, click through and look at our photos from last year. That place is amazing.
Compared to Bangkok, Berlin was just kind of…meh.
…but none of the drama and majesty of the Bangkok experience.
The highlight, though, was the AquaDom, the largest freestanding cylindrical aquarium in the world. It holds a million liters of water, 1,500 fish, and is 25 meters tall.
More than just a huge fish tank, there is a built-in transparent elevator in the middle.
I’ll just close with this gorgeous photo from Bangkok. Perhaps if my expectations were a tad high.
