    Germany Cycle track - visited 06/2022

    This cycle track built in 1905 (renewed in the 1960s) is the oldest existing 400m-concrete-track of Germany. Up to 15.000 visitors were not unusual when death defying cyclists were racing at a speed of up to 100km/h through the curves that reach a height of 6m. In the 1980s the interest in...

    The history of this railway workshop goes back to the midth of the 19th century. In the 1930s most of the buildings were renewed due to functional demands. Not neccessary to mention its relevance in Germany's dark history of WWII. Large parts of the buildings were destroyed by a mass fire in...

    Germany Farmhouse R. - visited 05/2020

    Germany Haarige Spinnerei - visited during 2016-2018

    This complex of Jugendstil buildings has been a huge mental hospital in Bavaria. Although it has not been very exciting (in the meaning of facility and/or decay) i explored it from time to time as it very close to my home. Most of the buildings were typical clean white rooms without any...
