History of the Aquarium Berlin

As the successor of the former Berliner Aquarium Unter den Linden Ecke Schadowstrase, the Aquarium of the Association of Zoological Gardens was built in Berlin during 1911–1913 on Budapester Strasse. The former management assistant and future custodian of the new institute, Dr Oskar Heinroth, was tasked with the drawing up of the plans.

The new Aquarium was opened on 18 August 1913. The first years were not spectacular due to the First World War and the subsequent dire economic conditions during the inflation years. From 1923 onwards however, the Aquarium developed into the most species-rich institute of its kind in the world until the outbreak of the Second World War.

On the night of 23 November to 24 November 1943, the 30-year-old Aquarium was almost completely destroyed by a direct bomb hit on the crocodile hall.

After many years of reconstruction, it was to the delight of many that the radiant Aquarium in its new splendor was able to once again be opened to the public in the presence of the then Governing Mayor of Berlin, Dr Richard von Weizsäcker on 20 August 1983, almost 70 years to the day after it first opened.
