Prora – The Nazi holiday resort

Prora is a beach resort on the island of Rügen, Germany, known especially for its colossal Nazi-planned tourist structures. The massive building complex was built between 1936 and 1939. The eight buildings are identical, and while they were planned as a holiday resort, they were never used for this purpose.

The giant complex of hotels in the Prora resort on the country’s biggest island, was designed to house 20,000 tourists as part of Adolf Hitler’s Strength Through Joy program to keep the German nation healthy and motivated. The local government is now collaborating with an investor group to initiate a 100,000-euro-makeover of the decaying complex and turn it into a modern holiday resort!
