Finally, my third visit was successful! A nice little loophole down a light shaft enabled us to enter the maze of corridors... The typical "hospital smell" is in the air. Stale air, mixed with the smell of sanitizers. Involuntarily, I hold my breath. After all the years of abandonment, that smell in particular makes the former hospital life tangible. We start exploring the bowles of the giant. Blinking lights and silent noises accompany us. Suddenly - in the cellar - the predominantly silence is killed by a comparetively deafening noise - the airing is still working very well. All these aspects still revive the old complex simply add to the haunting atmosphere. Personally, I permanently expect stumbling across a doctor, a nurse or a patient around every corner. Yet, nothing happens. All the people who once filled the walls with life are gone long time ago. Only the noises of the building, which is still kept alive like a last patient, are still there. It´s still working in its bowles, although its days have already been counted. Consequently, the heat in the former and still working heating plant hits you as soon as you open the door. Here, too - noise and blinking lights as far as the eye can see. A bizarre view in a building, which no longer serves any purpose. Also very strange to feel is the severe difference in temperature in the former pathology department with attached dissecting room. In comparison to other parts of the hospital, it´s very cold in there. For some, the journey ended here once. Here, in the cold and pitch-dark cellar at least our journey ends for the day. We take some more photos and leave the coldness of the basement through the heat of the boiler room. At the end of the day, find ourselves in the pleasant spring sun and breathe fresh air. [/url]
