  12. In the heart of a very small village , there is this little house . A foreign car was immediately spotted in the village cause it is small. Today the house is a mess. Many objects have disappeared. There a few time 3 German break cars were seen to load objects from the house into the cars. Today it is almost imposble to do spot . Except in very early morning . The Owner is an elderly wom , which is completely hysterical and called immediately the Police . Enjoy your visit
  13. One of the less-known locations in Belgium, but this doesn't imply that there's less to love about this one. yes, there were pretty fresh French-fries-leftovers from a bum or local youth but freakishly enough the rest of the house remained pretty well itact - apart from the dirt, food, and Obvious traces of someone going through drawers looking for something - 1 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 2 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 3 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 4 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 5 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 6 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr 7 Maison Couture by Dafne Op 't eijnde, on Flickr
  14. A pretty well known site to most on here, but still a good 'un. I met up with my Dutch mates again for a day of exploring in March and as we were in the area I suggested Maison de Viron as I'd never been and it was do-able again. Turns out they'd been three times before but as we were so close they agreed it was worth tacking this one onto the beginning of our day. We arrived at 6.30am and crept inside in the dark and straight up to the top floor in the almost pitch black. As we got to the top floor and got our bearings the sun had started to come up and this place came alive with the warm sun which shone straight through the windows (or in some cases the gaps where the windows had been). We then made our way down through the floors as the sun rose and lit up the lower parts of the house. Almost an hour and half had gone past and it was time to go, but I could have spent a lot longer here. Anyway, on with the pics... 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. Thanks for looking
  15. Just a normal house. In a normal neighborhood. 01 02 03 04 and last but not least. Boys with their Toys.
  16. I had heard all sorts of rumours about this place, mainly around the farmer who had a habit of slashing tyres. Seeing as I have a fairly non standard car, this was going to be a problem. There was no way any local outlets would have tyres in stock to fit. So getting them slashed would be a bloody nightmare. Once inside, I soon forgot those thoughts The inside of the house is in incredibly good condition, and to look at some of the rooms, it would be quite believable if someone said that the owner had only stepped out the other day There were so many lovely detail shots to be had here, although a very small location, one could easily spend several hours there. One of the shots I had seen from this location was the sewing machine A quick trip up to the loft, and that was quite photogenic too Thank you for viewing
  17. It was a lucky chance find on the way of a tour. Judging by documents abandoned since 2003 and much grown from the outside, so that the house has obviously entered no one for years. Inside a wealth of details and above all countless spiderwebs along with their cute builders - both in living, such as in dead form. (What you can't see on the photos: The complete ceiling was full of cobwebs.) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
  18. Maison Kirsch, Luxembourg Visited with: PG UE and Scott Chadwick. Visit date: November 2014 Please Note: Entry is always through an open access point and not by forcing our way in….. We are explorers, not vandals. History No history available at this time, however, if I manage to find any I will update this report. My Visit This is the first and only location I have been to in Luxembourg at the time of writing this report and was very excited to visit here. We arrived a little earlier than expected here due to the fact that a location we planned to visit first had been demolished. We had been told that Kirsch is dark inside and difficult to shoot in certain areas due to the lack of light, this turned out to totally correct, however, as you do we made the best of what light we had or did not have I should say! The Maison is not small but only around half of the site is for living in, the other half looked like it was for cattle or horses from what I could see through the windows anyway. Unfortunately though these areas were not accessible, luckily the main house was open. After having a quick walk around we split up and started to photograph Kirsch as much as we could before we had to set off back into France for our final location before flying home later in the day. Lets get on with the photos….. I started on the top floor with the bedrooms and this is where I spent most of my time. There is 3 bedrooms on this floor and as PG UE had called shotgun on the main bedroom I headed into one of the others. Here is a shot of bedroom number 1, not much in here apart from a bed, some old weighing scales for food etc and some scales for us mere mortals. Then I headed into bedroom number 2. This room consisted of 2 beds but one was covered in lots of junk such as old clothes and very damp magazines. I did however spot a nice little bottle of Mosquito repellent on the window sill. A few minutes after I had finished in bedroom number 2 PG finished in the main room and I headed in to take my shots. In this room there is lots to look at such as the main bed, cupboard, side tables, dressing table and lots of little knick-knacks that had been left behind. Anyway, I will let you see the images as they tell the story far better than I can. So the main bedroom done I headed for the loft space that we found earlier, again this area was full of items. My favourite things from the loft though had to be the toy Aeroplane and the bike! Why on earth a bike is in the loft I have no idea… So the bedrooms and loft photographed now it was time to head down to the ground floor which consisted of a dining room, kitchen, office, main hallway, stairs and storage rooms. I will not be posting images from all of the rooms of this report but over time I will add them to my flickr page, the link can be found at the end of this report. Here is a shot of my favourite place within the maison, the main hallway. Why I hear say… No idea really I just loved the dark wood panelling leading you to the door with the light streaming in above. However to get there I had to pass all of the dead mice and rat remains on the floor! You are right I am weird to say this was my favourite area but it just felt calming for some reason. Here is a shot of the stairs leading up to the top floor. The last area I went into was a great area as well, the store room which was full of jars with pickled food in them and other items such as wine on the opposite side of the room. When I entered this room I got a really weird feeling something just did not feel normal, this has never happened to me before on any explore. Now just let me say I am not a ghost hunter or a believer in ghosts as I have never seen, heard or witnessed anything to say that spirits exists. Anyway as I said I got a really weird feeling upon entering the room, I shouted if PG or Scott was around but no answer, I then shouted a little louder and got a reply from PG UE that he was in the next room. So, with my mind at rest I got back to taking my photos. A few weeks later I spoke to PG about this whilst we was on a UK explore and he said I bet it was the store room and then followed on by saying that he had the same type of feeling when he was in there as well, Anyway I digress. More images available on flickr The images above are just a small selection of the images I have edited. I will be adding lots more photos of Maison Kirsch on my Flickr page which can be found here https://www.flickr.com/photos/119757413@N07/ Final Thoughts For my first Luxembourg location I have to say I was very pleased with what Kirsch had to show me, Also, this was my first explore of an old house. As much as I enjoyed my time here I do have to say that it felt a little strange walking around rooms with personal items just sat slowly being covered in dust. People were born here, people grew up here, people had laughed and cried here, good and bad times enjoyed and worked through here, people may have even died here… Now there is nothing, no laughter, no noise, nothing, just items of people long gone…… So sad.

  21. Well, the last set of our Belgium tour last week. This was the first visit, around 08.00 AM. Inside we decided to split up, there were very small rooms (happy with my 10/20 ) so Renzenator and I took the ground floor, while a buddy went upstairs. After a couple of seconds we heard him talking to people. Wondering if he went insane and started talking to himself or did he ran into the owner? Luckily there were just 2 other explorers roaming through the house. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10
  22. Somewhere well hidden in Belgium we found this little house. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7
  23. Parked the car, moved past a fence and walked towards this building. I was wondering, why is this building abandoned, in the middle of a field, trees around it. Inside we noticed it was trashed and filled with graffiti, to bad Still made 3 pics inside, and went on to the next site. #1 #2 #3
