The Tropical Islands (WTF?!) Indoor Beach Resort


If you were in Ger­many and had a giant for­mer Soviet mil­i­tary air­base in your back­yard, what would you do? Build an indoor trop­i­cal resort com­plete with white sandy beaches, palm trees and heaps of white tourists in Speedos, right? RIGHT!!!?? Well that’s exactly what happened.

The approx­i­mately 1181 feet long, 689 feet wide and 351 feet tall hangar designed to house air­ships that probs would’ve been used to kill heaps of peo­ple, is now the home of the Trop­i­cal Islands Resort. The lux­ury ‘beach’ get­away can accom­mo­date up to 6000 guests not includ­ing the 500 peo­ple who work their every­day. Through purely unnat­ural means, the joint is kept at a lovely 26 degrees cel­sius with around about 64% humidity.

Oh and btw, there’s snow out­side. Heaps of it. Cov­er­ing the mil­i­tary hangar which has a beach resort in it. In Ger­many, where else?.
