A file picture taken July 12, 2005 shows the biggest hotel the world never saw - a forbidden hulk of 10,000 rooms built by German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler as a holiday camp to ready the masses for war, stretched along three miles of one of Germany's best beaches in Prora on the Baltic Sea island of Ruegen. Locals call the crumbling concrete complex the Colossus of Prora. The gigantic complex in Prora has been turned - after decades of disuse and decay - into one of the country's largest youth hostels.
