Inside world’s biggest indoor BEACH with forest & room to fly a hot air balloon | The Sun
THE world's largest indoor beach is housed in a resort the size of eight football pitches, with room enough to fly a hot air balloon.
The enormous attraction can host up to 6,000 visitors at one time and even includes a forest filled with 50,000 plants.
Tropical Island Resort in Krausnick, nestled in the German countryside, also boasts the world's largest indoor swimming pool.
A former aircraft hanger was transformed into the tropical paradise which, from birds eye view, almost looks like its own island.
A spa, waterfall, whirlpools and water slides are just some of the elaborate features included in the unique hotspot.
And the idyllic 'island' offers visitors an air temperature of 26 degrees, providing warm respite from the chilly winters south of Berlin.
