The world's tallest sandcastle has been built in northern Denmark. Towering at 21.16 meters high, the castle in the town of Blokhus is 3.5 meters higher than the last Guinness world record, achieved in Germany in 2019 with 17.66 meters. The castle is pyramid shaped and a wooden structure was made around it in order for the artist to cut the amazing figures in the sand. Some 4,860 tons of Danish sand with approximately 10% of added clay for a stronger finish were used to build the sandcastle. The castle was built by 30 of the world's most talented sand sculptors under the guidance of Dutch artist Wilfred Stijger. The Guinness record was measured by an authorized surveyor and signed by witnesses. It is expected to feature in the book's next edition.
