Germany Fliegerhorst Jüterbog-Damm, Germany - June 2017

Recommended Posts

This was a solo venture while on a recent trip to Berlin. It's around 60km outside the city so it's a pain to reach by public transport but big enough to spend a few hours once you get there. The buildings are pretty empty but there are a few cool Soviet murals dotted around and very little graffiti. I'm a bit vague on the history of this one but here's a bit I translated from Wiki.

 

The Fliegerhorst Jüterbog-Damm was an airfield and flying school used by German air forces during WWI (Luftstreitkräfte) & WWII (Luftwaffe). The site was used as an artillery-flying station from 1914 to 1918 for the Luftstreitkräfte. After the end of WWI the installations were demilitarised according to the peace treaty of Versailles, since this prohibited the operation of an air force. The Fliegerhorst was massively expanded from 1934/35, under the direction of the German architect Max Cetto. There were six large hangars in the north of the airport. Behind were other business and accommodation buildings. As early as 1934, the Jüterbog bomber flying school was based here, which was later renamed Kampferliegerschule Jüterbog and Kampfliegerlehrgang Jüterbog. Further aircraft training regiments, aircraft pilot schools as well as a local reconnaissance school were located here until 1945. Foillowing the end of WWII the site was occupied by Soviet forces until 1994 when it was handed back to the German government.

Interesting area. I like the wall paintings and the red staircase with the leaves.

Thanks Andy, lots more places like this on my list around Berlin :) 

 

There are many abandoned places. But unfortunately, most places in and around Berlin are quite destroyed by vandalism and with lots of graffiti.

      I visited the chocolate factory already more than four years ago. Inside it was partly very dark - much darker than it looks in the photos. The plaster had fallen from the ceiling; a gray damp mud lay on the floor and stuck stubbornly to the shoes.
      After the owner died, the factory was closed over 20 years ago. The widow of the manufacturer still lives in a dilapidated house next to the factory. In the past years, the condition has worsened a lot. Meanwhile, the roof of the former factory has almost completely collapsed.

      A former ballhaus somewhere in the eastern of Germany. At the moment they are renovating the building and for a small amount of money you can get acces for taking photographs.

      A legal visit during a photo base on 21-10-2017.
      Felt like a last chance because renovation is being prepared. We could notice the painting done during the filming of 'a cure for wellness' very well since we did the bathhouse an men's complex illegal in 2016. Still an impressive location of course and the photo's won't be much of a surprise i guess.
      I already had a fascination for abandoned buildings, but my first visit at Beelitz Heilstatten in 2014 really kicked of my passion for photography of the abandoned world.
