  1. Normally, the abandoned Belgian Wolvenhof castle (BE, Province of West Flanders) can't be visited. But due to many requests, the city of Izegem decided to open it for photographers for one day, on 09. September 2017. For this, a written application must be submitted in advance: https://www.west-vlaanderen.be/genieten/domeinen/WallemoteWolvenhof/Paginas/default.aspx
  2. The castle, built in 1913, became known under the pseudonym "du loup". After several years of vacancy, from 2010 it was inhabited for a short term. Now it's uninhabited again. Due to many requests, the city of Izegem decided to open it for photographers for one day, on 09. September 2017 (that's the reason for my post in the forum now, maybe someone is interested in it. For this, a written application must be submitted in advance: https://www.west-vlaanderen.be/genieten/domeinen/WallemoteWolvenhof/Paginas/default.aspx ). --- My visit was in May 2010. I thought the building was still abandoned, but a new resident recently had moved in. So I rang the bell, and after a short conversation he gave me permission to take some pictures. But he had little time and I got only about 15 minutes for this. So I really had to hurry, to photograph the rooms I was allowed to enter... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
  3. Very nice building and fantastic inside. Great set.
  4. Great set again. Yes, there are some places like this in Germany. Sadly often with a dark part of history.
  5. Already visited this villa two years ago, just forgot the photos on my hard drive. Two rooms were decorated with beautiful ceiling paintings, the rest of the building was unadorned and empty. Know nothing about it's history. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  6. The church, already visited in May 2016, is located lonely, above a small Italian village. It's partly overgrown and hidden behind bushes and trees. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything about the history of this building. The photos with the light beam through the swirled dust were taken at the end of the visit, but I put them at the beginning of the set. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  7. The window in the staircase is fantastic.
  8. Nice place and still in a good condition.
  9. Very nice set with some great views.
  10. Nice set. I especially like these suits, also the tubes in the seventh pic.
