Sculptures build world’s biggest sandcastle

September 3, 2017

Using almost 4,000 metric tonnes of sand, 19 sculptors have built a 16 metre tower featuring a number of famous landmarks to claim the world record for tallest sand castle.

The team spent more than three weeks in the western German city of Duisburg working on the 16.68 metre artwork.

The art work includes a sandy replica of the Great Sphinx of Giza, Venice’s Rialto Bridge and the graveside of Elvis Presley.

A Guinness World Record official was on hand on Friday to approve the new mark for the German sculpture.

The new sandcastle eclipsed the previous tallest sandcastle, a 14.84 metre world peace monument built in India in February.
