World’s Highest Sandcastle Built in German City

The world’s highest sandcastle is now standing 16.68 meters tall in the German city of Duisburg. A German travel operator organised the construction of the mammoth sandcastle, bringing in 3,500 tons of sand over the past three and a half weeks to the site at a former steelworks in the inland city.

News agency DPA reported that Jack Brockbank, a representative of Guinness World Records, certified the record 04 September 2017. It takes the title from a 14.84-metre sandcastle built early this year in India. The new sandcastle is decorated with sand models of tourist attractions such as Athens’ Acropolis, Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
