Okay...I can think of several different 'angles' whereby this could have gaming applications, as a site for activity, an inspiration for a space hab or a secret base, or just an instance of absurdity for the PCs to marvel at.

Tropical Resort in Snowy Germany

Note that the story is from 2013, so I don't know if this still exists, but it's definitely weird.

In essence, somebody converted an old blimp barn in Germany into a pseudo-tropical resort, complete with beaches, tents, etc, all indoors. Outside it's often icy-cold and snowing.

Still there, attracted 1.3 million visitors last year. Now with "special security measures" because of Corona.

The perfect meeting place to sell this old artefacts you "liberated" from the cultists.
