Germany Former Paper Mill (demolished now)

Recommended Posts

The company was founded as a straw-paper mill in 1859. After the sale in 1873, the production were extended in 1880. The houses for the workers emerged 1912. After the Second World War worked more than 300 employees in the paper mill. Each year, 15 to 20 papermakers were trained.

Jobs were lost in 2001, last 115 employees still working in the factory. Finally it was closed in 2007 and demolished in 2011.

The photos were taken during an eight-hour exploration five years ago, in April of 2010.

Sorry for the many photos. ;) But I wanted to show more, because it doesn't exist anymore.

Nive one. This was in your backyard, so not a surprise you've been there.

Obviously, you have been there earlier than me. The machine on #4 was almost gone when I visited that place

      It's been months sense I got out and explored an abandoned location.  There wasn't much left here, but it still felt great to be back on that horse again.

      Another exploration from the past.
       
      History
      In the area were several mining operations in the 19th century and many of the miners suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis.
      Therefore, in 1897, a sanatorium for the patients with lung disease and anemia was founded. In 1975, this sanatorium was converted into a rehabilitation clinic with physical therapy centre. It was closed in 2002.
      In January 2009, the former clinic was vandalized for the first time. Unknown people broke into the building and sprayed several fire extinguishers. The police search for the perpetrators remained fruitless.
      After many years of vacancy, there are plans to convert the building into apartments.
       
      My visit
      The large, L-shaped building had four floors and a newer extension. Exploring the interior was fascinating. The kitchen was almost completely furnished with stoves, large pots, cookware and much more. In many areas there were still furniture and interesting details, and on the lower floor the bathrooms and a swimming pool. I spent several hours there; it was lonely and quiet, and definitely a really worthwhile visit.
