The Giant Waterpark Inside an Old German Airship Hangar

Picture a rundown Post-World War 2 Soviet airforce hanger in Germany. Imagine what it was designed for; war, industry and technical superiority. Imagine what the people who built it, the people who ran it, and the people whose lives it changed felt about it.

They certainly wouldn’t expect that one day it’d be a Tropical Island resort.

You read that right. A tropical resort.

At the Tropical Islands resort the temperature is always 26°C (78.8 F) and it’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The sheer magnitude of the space is just mind-boggling:

– 66,000 m² of floor space, 5 million m³ of enclosed space
– 360 m long, 210 m wide, 107 m high (L = 984 ft, W = 689 ft, H = 351 ft)
– 20,000 m² of UV-transparent film on the south side of the dome (to let in the sun)
– 6,000 people can be accommodated in the dome at any one time

Inside the hangar is a beach paradise you’d expect to find on a desert island in the Caribbean. Instead, the resort, whose temperature is strictly controlled at twenty-six degrees, has been built inside the dome of the building.

It hosts among other things the world’s largest indoor rainforest, a twelve-hundred square meter lagoon, and Germany’s highest water slide, as well as a huge sauna and spa.

If that’s not enough, it has adventure lodges, tee-pees and Sunset camps inside the dome and rainforest for visitors to stay at. It has dozens of homes to stay in outside the dome as well, so if you fancy a visit, we’re sure that accommodation won’t be a problem!
