    France Haus des Architekten

    This beautiful property is located in the middle of France. Surrounded by a large park with a wall, not a single neighbor disturbs the peace. When you enter the building, you immediately feel the charm of bygone times. Furniture, clothes, documents, all these things are still lying around in...

    Germany Cafe Elsbeth (May 2020)

    We came across this restaurant in the woods on a main road. A little off the main street we see a few more houses. In the dining room we saw total chaos. Newspapers and magazines were lying around everywhere. The way up, where the private rooms met, wasn't that easy either. However, it was...

    Other Adria Hotel (Sep. 2020)

    This hotel, which has been abandoned for a number of years, lies in the hills above the Kvarner Bay. From the front balconies you have a great sea view. However, the size of the room already gives an idea that this hotel's best times are long behind it. It simply no longer meets the requirements...

    Germany Tatortstudio (May 2020)

    When you enter the courtyard, you have no idea what is hidden here in the halls. You see pallets, forklifts and some trucks, go on and stop in amazement at a 2-storey building with a flat roof. There is a large glass door here, the inscription on the door of which does not fit this place at all...
