It 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 Island 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.

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. TROPICAL ISLAND FACTS The dome can hold 6,000 swimmers 32C in the Bali Lagoon pool 50,000 plants in the tropical forest 66,000 square metre area 360m length 210m width 107m height 400 sunloungers 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 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.
