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?.
