World's tallest sandcastle

 Denmark is home to the world's highest sandcastle. It has set a new Guinness World Record with a height of 21.16 metres. Denmark's new sandcastle is 3.5 metres higher than Germany's previous record of 17.66 metres created in 2019.

To avoid collapsing like so many others, the sandcastle is built in the shape of a triangle. Artists can create beautiful figures in sand thanks to a wooden structure placed around the sandcastle. It is a well-decorated monument in Blokhus, a tiny seaside community. It was built out of 4860 tonnes of sand and resembles a pyramid.To ensure the sand sticks on, it was mixed with around 10% clay.When everything is finished, an extra layer of adhesive was applied to ensure it will last for the duration of the winter.

Led by the seasoned artist Wilfred Stijger of Holland, 30 of the world's most gifted sand sculptors worked in the making of the giant structure. 

The Dutch designer said his creation was inspired by the coronaviurus pandemic.

He said he put a coronavirus pathogen as a crown atop the castle to illustrate how the virus is ruling our world, and not allowing us to do what we want to do.

This settlement is in the Danish municipality of Jammerbugt in North Jutland. This community is a major beach resort with over a million visitors each year. Hune Hvarre was its original name. This community had very few trees in the 1600s. As a result, wood was brought in from Norway. Locals built some buildings out of wood in order to store it. These structures are known as "block dwellings," and the village was given the Danish name of Blokhus as a result.
