The World’s Largest Indoor Water Park Is Located in Freezing Germany





When talking about ideal water park locations, Germany doesn’t really come to mind. With the country’s cold temperatures, such a vacation destination seems out of place.

But 30 miles south of Berlin is Tropical Islands Resort, the largest indoor water park in the world. The location is a former airship hangar, which is always freezing with snow during winter. Inside the sprawling water park, however, it is warm and humid.

The biggest indoor water park in the world is located in Germany.

Tropical Islands Resort takes up more than 16 acres (that’s more than six city blocks) and can host 6,000 guests at a time. The different facilities can cater to guests of all kinds, from kids to adults. The children can have fun in the paddling area, waterslide, and water play table.

It is warm and humid inside, even though it is freezing outside during winter.

At the Tropino Club, there are bumper boats, miniature cars, and air hockey. Adults can also enjoy the giant waterslides, a Bali-inspired lagoon, and a ‘tropical sea’ that covers the area of three Olympic-sized pools.

The water park caters to both the young and old.

There are areas with clear roofs, too, so guests can enjoy the sun. For something more relaxing, visitors can take advantage of the full-service spa.

There is an outside area called Amazonia.
