Other An Assortment of Derp, Various Countries - August 2016

Recommended Posts

Evening!



I've recently been catching up on the backlog from my latest, and most adventurous trip so far. We hit many locations, but some I feel only had a couple of shots worthwhile - not enough to warrant a report, but I really did enjoy these places. I thought an easy way of sharing these beautiful places would be to place them in one thread - an assortment of derp. These were takin in Germany, Austria & Luxembourg across my trip, and aren't in any particular order - although I do have some favourites! :P

Unfortunately I don't know too much about the history of most of these places, but i'll include any i do know. I can imagine y'all probbaly bored to death of my spam recently, but I hope you enjoy these! :D


Blue Sand House
We spent the night in Czech and this was first on the agenda for the next day, so after a good night's sleep, a breakfast consisting mostly of chorizo, hot dogs and cereal we hit the road. 5 hours later we arrived here, and having been wanting to see this place for so long I was overwhelmed. I was so happy I finally got here. The house was full of sand in other rooms too - I'm not quite sure how it got there, or for how long it's been there - but it made for a nice photo.

Green Ballroom
I'd heard this was under new ownership, and he was charging for explorers for photos - I'd heard it was a relitively small amount and I was happy to pay it, considering I didn't really want to piss of any Germans. But, we arrived and he was nowhere to be seen, so, obviously we gave it a go and found an extremely awkward window. After squeezing through we had a quick look in here, but with 2 of our group not fancying the access we didn't spend long inside. The place was lovely - although it's a shame the local gaffers had been in recently.

Industrial Dancefloor
We were short on time and mid-way through another long stint of driving, so this was a nice way to break it up. It was only really this room, but it was nice - more to just get out the car and go for a mooch. Was followed by a rather large and appetising mcdonalds before continuing our drive south.

Sanatorium Elisabeth
I'd got my hopes up for this place - maybe a little too much. It's in a very sorry looking state, and once again the local graffers have been in - the only piece I sorta like is this one on the stairs. I didn't take any other photos here - but I do like this one.

Cotton Factory
This place was about a 30 second drive from another derp (pretty much walking distance) but we drove anyway! My friend had warned me of the owner - and that sometimes he is there. We jumped the gate and found a way in, and it wasn't until I was mid-way through my first shot I heard the footsteps. No doubt there was someone on the floor above, and it sounded like he was dragging something. Was it the owner? Who knows - not me that's for sure! With little knowledge of the local law and none of the language we didn;t hang around to find out. I grabbed these two photos before making a hasty exit. In the off chance I'm ever in the area I'd like to revisit, as it was a lovely place.

Spiegelvilla
This was a lovely little villa we stopped by on the way to Vienna, and although rather bland it still featured a couple of nice shots.

Forst Zinna
This was an extremely large military training camp, which had clearly been abandoned for some time. This was next door to another derp, so thought we might as well check it out too. We didn't spent too long here, as we needed to find somewhere to camp for the night and we were losing the light fast. It's not looking too good, and I'm surprised some buildings are still standing.

Maison Kirsch
This was the last derp we (successfully) done, and although rather dark, and stinking of poop it was alright. It seemed to have been abandoned for a long while now - deduced from the copious amount of stinging nettles surrounding it. And i found out the hard way, whilst wearing shots. After this followed a fail, before a rtaher long and sleepy drive back to the tunnel.

Bad Gastein
I am aware this is the town, and not a derp - but it was the whole experience that made it for me. I heard secca were on the ball here, so we spent a while casing the joint and baiting potential secca to see if they'd respond, but something didn't feel right. I only nipped inside one building for a matter of minutes to grab this handheld shot. It's clear someone had been in recently, with a rather comfy chair positioned near the main room, along with footprints and a rather new looking book. Before disappearing completely I stopped to grab a couple of shots of the town - easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever had the privilege of visiting.

Thank you
If you've made it this far - thank you. It means a lot that you've taken the time out to read this, and I hope you enjoyed it. Once again I apologise for the spam, but I wanted to get these edited & uploaded before my next trip - or it'd never happen. 


So as always, thank you!:thumb

      Welcome to the Grand Hotel S. which was built from 1840 to 1842. It closed its doors in 1999 and is abandoned since.

      This Airbase was the largest underground military base and airport in all of the former Yugoslavia. The property is located on the current border of Bosnia and Croatia. The complex was built in 1948 - It was codenamed  505. The construction was completed 20 years later. The purpose of the facility was to establish, integrate and coordinate the nationwide early warning network of the Socialist Federated Republic of Yugoslavia, similar to NORAD (North American Air Defense Command). There were semicircular concrete shields, spaced ten meters apart to reduce the impact of the attack on the object. The complex had an underground water source, power generators, crew quarters and other strategic military facilities. Aircraft was used in 1991 during the Yugoslav War. Yugoslav People's Army During the withdrawal, it destroyed the runway by detonating explosive charges. In order to prevent any further use of the complex, Serbian troops detonated 56 tons of explosives. During exploration, a possible meeting of the police, the border guards of Croatia and the army should be reconsidered. The tunnels are buried, due to the underground connection with Bosnia, which would constitute a "wild" border crossing.

      I recently found this huge abandoned hotel in a sorry overgrown state. So I thought I would wizz the flying camera around it. I didn't go inside unfortunately as the perimeter fence looked rather harsh, with lots of no entry signs. plus it was way to hot. 

      The Penang Mutiara Beach Resort in Jalan Teluk Bahang has been left totally abandoned since it shut its doors in 2006.

      The abandoned mining hospital, located in Hungary, dates back to the nineteenth century. A coal mining company in 1898 began construction of a small mining hospital, which began operations with the approval of the Minister of the Interior on December 17, 1900. The hospital. According to descriptions, it has been adapted for 50 beds. There was a surgical, internal and infectious department. The building was full of lighting, sewage and bathrooms. The facility was one of the most modern hospitals at the time. The care was extended to include the epidemic (1909) and the pharmacy. In 1911 the number of residents increased to such an extent that the hospital was no longer able to meet this number. In 1911, a new hospital was started, which started operating in 1912. The necessary buildings were built in the courtyard of the hospital (morgue, a section of the hospital, a chapel, a house for doctors and nuns, a horse farm). The three-storey hospital had 129 beds for patients who were placed in 23 units. The mining company was responsible for maintaining the hospital, covering all personnel and all costs. Despite many years of change, the mining hospital developed with the development of mining. The hospital was relocated in 1998 to a new hospital complex. Hungarians are tightly attached to the old building and have been trying to save one of the oldest buildings in the city for several years. It was sold for approximately HUF 276 million ($ 1 million). I am planning a rehabilitation center, an oncological center and a nursing home.
