The landlocked German city of Duisburg just pipped some proud beach towns as it bagged the Guinness World Record 2017 for hosting the world’s highest sandcastle. The 55-feet tall castle, sculpted by a team of designers from 10 countries, features diverse imagery and will stand erect until September 29.

The Duisburg sandcastle shattered the record of a 50-feet structure in Puri, India, which was judged the highest behemoth in February, writes Mashable.

The castle, featuring design elements such as the Great Sphinx Of Giza, Venice’s Rialto Bridge, the gravesite of Elvis Presley among others, has so far attracted more than 180,000 visitors, notes Design Boom.
