The Tropical Islands Resort in Krausnick, Germany, is the world’s largest indoor beach with 400 sunloungers – and not a cloud in sight.
Yet with up to 6,000 visitors allowed in at a time, there are bound to be towel-fights over them – especially as this “indoors paradise” is in Germany.
The Tropical Islands Resort in Krausnick, south of Berlin, also boasts the largest indoor pool, 50,000-plant forest – and enough space to fly a hot air balloon inside.
The former aircraft hangar has been transformed into a paradise offering tourists a tropical escape, if you can ignore the fact that you are miles from any ocean – or the tropics, for that matter.
The gigantic hangar was built to produce transport zeppelins but after the company went bankrupt in 1992 the hangar fell into disuse.
A Malaysian company saw the potential in the hangar, which is the world’s largest freestanding building, and Tropical Islands Resort opened in 2004.

Despite the impressive interior of the hot hangar, visitors reviewing the indoor tropical resort on Reddit complained about high prices on everything from beverages to accommodation and additional fees to use the popular water slides.
Some users went as far as to vent their disappointment in the type of crowd attracted by the tropical escape.
User Antares42 wrote: “A good proportion of the audience is folks who’d love to fly to the beach but can’t afford it… and it shows,” complaining about “Mallorca youths – loud, obnoxious, inebriated, strutting about as if they owned the place.”
“It’s nice for families with small kids, but we weren’t overwhelmed (3 people in our late 20s)” another Reddit user said.
“There simply wasn’t much fun stuff to do all day, just the pools, even the mediocre slides cost extra.”
The Tropical Islands Resort, located on an old World War II runway, keeps a pleasant temperature of 26C, thanks to the modified 70,000 square metre dome allowing sunlight to shine through massive windows.
And naturally, if it rains or pours, a quick common can be sent to close the roof – and everyone can remain dry and happy in their tropical paradise.

Located in Brussels in Belgium, Nemo 33, the world’s deepest swimming pool, contains a whopping 660,500 gallons (2.5 million litres) of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water that is kept at a temperature of 30C (86F).
Swimmers wanting to fetch something off the bottom of this pool will certainly need more than a lungful of air – seeing as it’s a staggering 113 feet (34.5 metres) deep.
It takes the phrase “being thrown in at the deep end” to a whole new level.

The pool consists of a submerged structure with flat platforms at various depths and has two large flat-bottomed areas at depth levels of 16feet (5 metres) and 33 feet (10 metres), and a large circular pit that has a depth of 108 feet (33 metres).
It also holds several underwater caves at 10 metres deep.
The venue, with its simulated underwater caves, varying depths and constant toasty temperatures, is the perfect place for both novice and more experienced divers.
And for those divers and instructors that need more time at the bottom, there are three pressurized rooms at -30 (-10 metres) and -23 metres (-7 metres) with constantly renewed air.
Nemo 33 was designed by Belgian diving expert John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational and film production facility.
Meanwhile, for those that don’t want to take a dip, there are fourteen underwater windows that allow outside visitors to view all the underwater action.
