The world’s largest free-standing cylindrical aquarium

The glazed AquaDom elevator travels through a 14 metre high cylinder filled with water. Approximately 1,500 exotic fish swim around a genuine coral reef.

In 2020 the AquaDom was successfully refurbished and modernised.
For the upgrading work carried out, the water was drained completely from the huge tank. The AquaDom’s fish were moved temporarily to aquariums in the basement of DomAquarée. The basement contains a breeding and care facility for the fish that is also used during normal operation of the AquaDom. Expert biologists and aquarists provided support throughout the entire process. Have a look behind the scenes in our short video documentation.
