A huge aquarium containing 1 million liters of water exploded in the lobby of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin, flooding the hotel and nearby streets.

The Aqua Dome, which houses 1,500 tropical fish, is 14 meters high and has been described as the largest free-standing cylindrical aquarium in the world.

Two people were injured by the shattered glass.

Police said “incredible” damage was caused by the huge basin explosion. Video showed an empty cistern, water pouring into the hallway, and debris strewn everywhere.
