A team of artists finished work on a 17.66-meter sandcastle on Wednesday in the German resort, breaking the previous world record for the highest sandcastle of 16.68 meters.

The artists began work on the castle in May with the help of a digger and crane and used more than 11 tons of sand.

The successful construction marked a turnabout in fortune for organizer Thomas van den Dungen, who tried to break the world record two years ago but ended in tragedy.
