Indoor Beach in Germany

This is just incredible.
An enormous beach and resort built inside an airship hanger in Germany.

Despite appearances, not everything is  as it seems at Tropical Islands 

The 'resort' is actually located on the site of a former Soviet Military Air Base in 
Krausnick, Germany, inside a hangar built originally to house airships
to haul long-distance cargo. And despite it looks like
 temperatures are 
through the roof - outside the giant
  hanger it is actually snowing. 
As these incredible pictures show, the resort   contains a beach, a lagoon, and water slide and adventure park. 
Guests can enjoy numerous restaurants, evening shows and can also relax in a sauna. 

Guests can also enjoy numerous restaurants, evening shows and saunas.
A range of options are available for stays, from the basic to luxury.
Accommodation includes quaint looking cottages and even beach tents.
As well as flamingos, free-flying canaries also fly around the site. It is believed that the hall which Tropical Islands is located in is the biggest free-standing hall in the world. 

Tropical Islands attracts up to 6,000 visitors   a day and in its first year attracted 975,000 visitors. 

As well as the thousands of visitors each day, approximately 500 people work at the site. 
Tropical Islands opened to members of the public in 2004. Incredibly, the hangar, which is 360 meters long, 210 meters wide and 107 meters high, is tall enough to enclose the Statue of Liberty. 

Thanks Norman
