Hitler’s order was a line of stones at that time. So 9 thousand laborers were engaged in the construction of this hotel day and night and its work continued for three years.

This is before the Second World War. The fear of Hitler started sitting in the hearts of the people. Hitler ordered his soldiers to build a hotel which would become a place for his fun. The story of this hotel named Colossus of Prora is very interesting and the stories related to it are shocking. About 9 thousand laborers were engaged in the construction of this building and in the 1930s it was ready to be a luxurious hotel.
Following Hitler’s orders, soldiers began building the hotel on Rugen Island in the Baltic Sea, Germany. The Colossus of Prora was designed by Clemens Klötz in 1930. The responsibility of constructing the island spread over five kilometers was given to a Nazi organization named Kraft durch Freude. Hitler wanted to build this hotel for the fun of soldiers and German people.
The project cost around 80 billion rupees
Hitler’s order was a line of stone at that time. So 9 thousand laborers were engaged in the construction of this hotel day and night and its work continued continuously for three years. Its construction started in 1936 and after the start of Second World in 1939 the hotel work stopped. Talking about the cost, then 237.5 million German currency was spent in it, which is equivalent to about € 899 million in today’s time i.e. around 80 billion rupees.
Hotel became barracks of soldiers
Before the work stopped, many parts of the hotel were ready, which included 8 housing blocks, theaters and cinema halls. The war started even before further work began and the workers were sent to the army and Hitler’s dream remained incomplete. The construction of the hotel remained incomplete. The building which was being built for the fun of the soldiers started to be used as their barrack. Apart from Germany, the army of many countries took refuge here and this luxurious building turned into ruins.
The building sold in 2004 with great difficulty
Many times an attempt was also made to sell this building, but each time the deal broke down due to some reason. Locally, many people also heard rumors that many people were killed here during the fighting, hence the souls of many soldiers wander here. In 2004, this hotel was sold in different parts and now buyers are using different parts of it.
