There is a 10,000 room beachfront hotel that no one has ever stayed at. A hotel so huge it stretches over a staggering three miles and has 10,000 bedrooms all facing the sea. That is because this beach resort named Prora was built by the Nazis between 1936 and 1939 on Hitler’s orders. Prora lies on an extensive bay between the Sassnitz and Binz regions, known as the Prorer Wiek, on the narrow heath (the Prora) which separates the lagoon of the Kleiner Jasmunder Bodden from the Baltic Sea. The buildings extend over a length of 4.5 kilometres and are roughly 150 metres from the beach. The coast offers a long flat sand beach, which stretches from Binz to the ferry port. This beach was thus an ideal location for the establishment of a seaside resort. During that same period, Hitler was making preparations for war which ultimately took priority, and the massive building project was never finished.
