Once the magnificent property in East Germany housed a spa building. Around 1950, the building was converted into a hotel, which was given the name of a Duchess. In the 90s, it was closed for cost reasons, since it decays visibly.
Access was easy; the front door was locked, but some open windows and a open door at the back.
My first visit was in 2011. Now I returned to see how the building has changed over the past seven years.
Many ceilings and floors had collapsed meanwhile, and some areas I could't enter therefore. Unfortunately, some things were destroyed by vandalism or were stolen. For example, all banisters and the ornamented window arches. But on the other hand, the natural decay of the past few years has been very interesting.
Here are also a few comparison pictures and some photos from 2011 of rooms that couldn't be entered anymore today.

This was the first stop in Italy with Elliot5200 & @shaddam last month. I don't know any history unfortunately but it's a stunning building and I wouldn't mind living in it! I normally write a lot more than this but I'm not sure what else to say. Oh, we went for a pizza afterwards. Pics:

Thanks for looking
The Spa house was built within three years in the mid-20th century. It offered space for 100 beds and has an auditorium with 540 seats. Inside of the theater it was so dark that I had to expose about 2 minutes despite high ISO. The other rooms were empty or locked, so I took no pictures there. 1 2 3 4 5

I really love these old traditional farm houses around here. They represent the history of the rural area often provide insight to the intimate living conditions of the former owner. I found this little farm house by chance last weekend.
