Germany Beelitz Heilstätten Germany March 2013

Recommended Posts

Visited with Urban Ginger,SpaceInvader and met up with Humpa and his cousin..and a few random German bods while there

This trip was supposed to be a day or so longer and we had a full on list to get thru.

That all went tits up after a car crash bad enough to write off two cars.The insurance company mugged us off and although saying they would get the car moved it was down to the breakdown cover people to get us home..

The breakdown cover said it was the other way round and when we tried to get back to insurance company the automated message informed UG that business was closed till Monday morning ,so we where stranded..Thankfully Humpa and co. came back and got us to the hotel which we had booked for that night and after getting quoted 800 for train tickets for us to get to Calais or a hire car for 600 euros we where getting rather stressed as we didn't have a huge amount of money..UG' family to the rescue and easy jet tickets where paid for in the uk and we had our way home and could get some sleep before we had to leave.Big thanks to silver rainbow for the lift back from the airport..

So all in all bloody stressful few days after a ten hour drive to Germany..The upside was a visit to Amsterdam to check out the tulips and the women in the little rooms with big windows where very friendly:)

History from wicki

Quote
Beelitz-Heilstätten, a district of the town, is home to a large hospital complex of

about 60 buildings including a cogeneration plant erected from 1898 on according to

plans of architect Heino Schmieden. Originally designed as a sanatorium by the

Berlin workers' health insurance corporation, the complex from the beginning of

World War I on was a military hospital of the Imperial German Army. During October

and November 1916, Adolf Hitler recuperated at Beelitz-Heilstätten after being

wounded in the leg at the Battle of the Somme. In 1945, Beelitz-Heilstätten was

occupied by Soviet forces, and the complex remained a Soviet military hospital

until 1995, well after the German reunification. In December 1990 Erich Honecker

was admitted to Beelitz-Heilstätten after being forced to resign as the head of the

East German government.

Following the Soviet withdrawal, attempts were made to privatize the complex, but

they were not entirely successful. Some sections of the hospital remain in

operation as a neurological rehabilitation center and as a center for research and

care for victims of Parkinsons disease. The remainder of the complex, including the

surgery, the psychiatric ward, and a rifle range, was abandoned in 2000. As of

2007, none of the abandoned hospital buildings or the surrounding area were

secured, giving the area the feel of a ghost town. This has made Beelitz-

Heilstätten a destination for curious visitors and a film set for movies like The

Pianist from 2002, the Rammstein music video Mein Herz brennt and Valkyrie from

2008.

      The team behind the Lost Place Tapes is looking for a rare vehicle hidden in a place where no one suspects it to be. What we find is breathtaking, morbid, frightening and depressing at the same time ...

      Ziegel-Peter is a small abandoned brickyard quite close to Munich. Although it's quite well known around here and although it's not really a new place it is happily nearly untroubled by vandalism. I really love this place because it's fully stuffed and because I love these handcraft workplaces which become rare nowadays.

      a beautiful good morning to each and everyone of you, let me take the time to introduce myself - after all, that's the way to do it, right?

      my name’s ulrich, but most people just call me "ully" - except for my mother;). i live in the southern part of germany, just about 30 km from the northwestern Bavarian border.

      i have been doing urban exploring for a good four years now, but until this year only very sporadic. after a tour through Belgium i was really hooked – as they say it is a true eldorado for lost placers. i have two buddies who accompany me from time to time, but often I go on tours alone. i have learned to appreciate the latter, because the adrenaline rises even more when you are in an abandoned building without a partner.

      i’ve been pretty active on social media like instagram, facebook and youtube lately, you will find my works under the name THE LOST PLACE TAPES. i have not uploaded every place I have visited so far, because editing the videos takes such a long time. i’m taking a different approach than most of the video guys, there are way too many people walking around with a gopro commenting as they explore the place. i’m trying to show the places more in a documentary style. and the good news is: although i am from germany and my videos are in german, I am ALWAYS offering english subtitles for my episodes.

      i hope I am allowed to do some self-promotion here, if you like what you see why don’t you hit “subscribe”?

      looking forward to meeting you on the forum!

      One of only a few of my discoveries which I have exclusive (at least I didn't find any pictures on the www).  I spotted this small farmhouse a few years ago on one of my rides but unfortunately there was no way inside. But happily I decided to keep in mind. This year I detected an open window.  Have been in there twice since.
