The family and I went on a little road trip in Germany over August. Starting in Munich and driving the Romantic Road to Wurzburg, then on to Berlin.

Whilst in Germany it would be rude not to stop of at some derps that I had my eye on. Some of which I have wanted to see since beginning my hobby back in 2010.



There were no derps on my list until the second week of the trip. 1st on my list Dr Anna's House. I found this place by searching the internet for a 2 months, about 3 years ago (before it was common knowledge)and wanted to see it ever since, having watched the place slowly deteorate with each report posted on the forums.



We pulled up outside Dr Anna's House to find Heras fencing surrounding it, all the yard cleared and builders loitering on site. F**K was the word that repeatedly popped in my head. Once I had calmed down it was of to the next stop.



The Air Museum was ok, small and very public with some office forecourt holding a lot of the vehicles. Took a couple of pictures from the fence as I was getting eyeballed by a couple of dog walkers. I began to believe the trip may not bare much fruit.

Beelitz, exploring mecca. we arrived to find thousands of people wandering around, organised tours, aerial walk way through the tree tops and the best buildings behind yet more fence with motion cameras, beeping every time I got near the fence. The main pavilion now has on site security. I have never been so disappointed, this was a place I have yearned to see for nearly 7 years and now it was theme park. I suspect if you got there early enough the place would be doable, but a schedule is a schedule

Kaserne Krampnitz, I could not wait to see the mural in the Adler building. 10 seconds over the wall, and we got caught by security and chucked of site. It was weird, the security was kind of alright initially, but once we were back at the car he started going berserk shouting at us, and threatening police and fines. I guess he felt safe once in the open.

Schloss H, success! Apart from having to hide form a postie for 15 minutes this was a breeze, however I forgot my tripod, and it was dark so the photos aren't great.

I was now getting a bit disillusioned by the whole venture and the urge was wavering. However the CCCP Flight School got the old mojo back, stunning building and nice and relaxed. We met a group of Brit explorers in the theatre who were a bit cagey about who they were (nice to meet you) they informed me they had not long been to Dr Anna's House. (How could this be) Apparently it was the house next to the one with Heras fencing. I felt sick at this point, I could not believe how stupid and lazy I had been. Lesson learnt!

And finally at little trek to The Beast (I think this is the one referred to as this) absolutely amazing machine, gigantic. and behind a fence be protected by a guy on a moped.

In all, not the best exploring trip but the holiday on a whole was great, I highly recommend Bavaria, it is stunning.

Thanks for looking and reading, if you made it this far.

My Family, sorry CREW!

Well that trip sounds like it had its fair share of ups and downs! The stories about Beelitz 'theme park' seem to be true then. Still some great pics there, and I've not seen THE BEAST before - I love it!!

That beast is awesome! Looks like you managed to get around a bit, nice work :)

You have some really nice shots there, I like the planes and chopper. That one with the wheelchair is nice too :)

Unfortunately a few fails indeed, but that's just our hobby. On the other hand successful explorations and some nice shots. My favorite is the helicopter.
