Sand artists built the world’s tallest sandcastle

 

An international team of sand artists have built the world’s tallest sandcastle in Germany.

Travel company Schauinsland-Reisen initiated the project, hoping to bring the world record to Duisburg after the city’s attempt failed last year.

After almost a month of construction, the finished sandcastle stood at 16.68 metres and was officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the tallest sandcastle in the world.
