The new DomLounge has opened its doors at the top of the Radisson SAS Hotel Berlin. It promises to be a location perfectly suited to events and conferences, offering 1,400 square meters of flexible space over two levels with unforgettable views of Berlin. The Radisson SAS will be effectively doubling the amount of space available for conferences and can now host events for up to 1,500 participants.

In addition to its fantastic views of Berlin’s TV tower, the Rotes Rathaus (Red Town Hall), the Gendarmenmarkt square and the UNESCO world heritage site, Museum Island, the new DomLounge in the Radisson SAS Hotel Berlin also combines flexible spaces for events, cutting-edge conference technology and tailor-made services. General Manager Wolfgang Wagner is enthusiastic: “The DomLounge is going to be a roaring success. Of all the five-star hotels in Berlin, we are the first to offer a conference area right under our roof, in bright rooms with full-length windows giving unique views of the landmarks of our capital. A real highlight of the DomLounge is access via the AquaDom – the largest free-standing cylindrical aquarium in the world.”

Five function rooms ranging between 50 and 600 sq m and four foyers offer plenty of scope for business meetings, presentations, receptions, exhibitions or gala dinners. Smaller events can also be easily catered for with a flexible room set-up that guarantees you’ll hit the right note. During the refit, particular attention was paid to equipping the rooms with cutting-edge technical equipment, such as soundproofed rooms and high-speed wireless LAN – available free in all Radisson SAS Hotels for hotel and conference guests – as well as top-quality meeting and conference technology. Overhead projectors, screens and top-of-the-line sound systems are also readily available.

The renowned Berlin architect’s office BHPS (Bassenge, Heinrich, Puhan-Schulz) created the design of the DomLounge. Warm orange offers a beautiful contrast to the daring glass and steel roof construction – stylish cantilever chairs and light-coloured wood create a pleasant atmosphere for meetings and conferences. The element of water is also reflected in the DomLounge: the oversize digital print photograph on a photo canvas will appeal to all who see it, with its captivating effects, the distance it intends to create and its different ways of viewing water.

A real highlight of any visit is a trip through the AquaDom with its 2,500 tropical fish and one million litres of saltwater. The two-storey lift takes up to 48 guests on a 10-minute journey up through the freestanding cylindrical aquarium, past shoals of curious fish. But it’s probably only recommended for those with a head for heights because the way out of the aquarium is via a 25-metre-high glass bridge to the DomLounge. Additionally, there are also two elegant express lifts available to take the guests up to the DomLounge.
