London, August 22 : Over 1,000 Germans joined forces to make the world's longest beach towel during a event in the country's St Peter-Ording resort recently.
The 2,760ft towel was made by assembling yellow towels in a chain.
Internet firm Expedia Germany, organisers of the event, the participants completed the task in less than 30 minutes.
The firm says that this might have been the first time that such a big chain of beach towels has been made.
"Now we are pleased. We are not aware of anywhere else in the world that has made a chain of beach towels this long," British tabloid The Sun quoted Expedia's Alexa-Elisabeth Tietze as saying.
