Eight technicians from Russia, Hungary, Holland, Latvia, Germany, and Poland all gathered to build this intricate castle. Standing tall in Binz, Germany, the tip of the castle rests 57 feet from the ground and has more than 24,000 pounds of sand.
Overall, the team spent more than three weeks building the model. After two years of planning and preparations, sculptor Thomas van den Dungen can finally take the record home! In total, it has a diameter of 85 feet, which is 26 meters.
