The amazing airship hangars never cease to amaze and fascinate us. Although their creation has a very specific function in mind, its use does not necessarily need to be restricted to a single use. As such, the challenge of recovering and finding new uses for out-of-use hangars is as alluring as the contrast it can result in. That's what happened in the hold hangar in Berlin, from where some of the most famous zeppelins have come from. Today, it has been turned into a huge artificial paradise, a tropical island in the middle of the austere climate of Berlin.

Tropical Islands, that's what it's called, has been working since 2004 and is part of a world wide net of turistic infrastructures, with its headquarters in Malasia. Its promotor, Colin Au as invested about 95 million dollars in the project, which, by itself gives you an idea of the magnitude of the enterprise. The space is massive: 5 000 000 m3. In its inside a small ecosystem with dozens of plants, sand beaches, lakes and waterfalls has been created, including bird sounds are broadcast through skillfully disguised speakers.
In addition, there are obviously other features, like in every other turistic resort, such as lodging (tents and bungalows), game courts (tennis, golf, aquatic sports), bars and restaurants, a shopping mall, shows and various other activities. The size of the former hanger allows it. If you choose to go to the beach, you can certainly get a nice tan, even when it is freezing cold outside, as long as there's sun outside and its rays come through the wide glass ceiling.
