  1. History Once the magnificent property in East Germany housed a spa building. Around 1950, the building was converted into a hotel, which was given the name of a Duchess. In the 90s, it was closed for cost reasons, since it decays visibly. The Explore Access was easy; the front door was locked, but some open windows and a open door at the back. My first visit was in 2011. Now I returned to see how the building has changed over the past seven years. Many ceilings and floors had collapsed meanwhile, and some areas I could't enter therefore. Unfortunately, some things were destroyed by vandalism or were stolen. For example, all banisters and the ornamented window arches. But on the other hand, the natural decay of the past few years has been very interesting. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Here are also a few comparison pictures and some photos from 2011 of rooms that couldn't be entered anymore today. 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 - Also this rose has been gone due to the collapse of the ceiling.
  2. Hidden behind the trees of a small wood I found this nice mansion. It is abandoned at least since 4 years and nevertheless happily free of any kind of vandalism. #1 DSC00404-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC00449-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC00423-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC00422-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC00444-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC00410-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC00417-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC00413-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC00445-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC00412-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC00446-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC00408-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC00409-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC00406-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC00448-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC00443-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC00442-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC00424-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC00426-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC00436-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC00437-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC00441-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC00428-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC00439-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC00432-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC00430-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  3. I really love these old traditional farm houses around here. They represent the history of the rural area often provide insight to the intimate living conditions of the former owner. I found this little farm house by chance last weekend. #1 DSC00481-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC00483-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC00484-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC00464-Bearbeitet-2-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC00488-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC00465-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC00487-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC00490-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC00498-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC00467-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC00479-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC00475-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC00496-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC00494-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC00476-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC00480-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC00492-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  4. Peppermint Powerplant I've seen this particular location a few times before online but I decided to post up a report on it anyway because I think it's quite special with some unique characteristics. History The Peppermint Powerplant was built in conjunction to a nearby paper mill with the purpose of supplying electricity to the mill. The plant features a stunning peppermint colour scheme on the singular turbine and control panels. The turbine itself was produced by Siemens, a company established in 1904 in Berlin and is currently one of the most prominent manufactures of high powered gas turbines worldwide. The plant n also hosted two Steinmüller boilers. One of which was commissioned in 1954 and the other in 1965. Both the power station and the paper mill were decommissioned around 1999. From what we could see the paper mill had been stripped. But despite being closed for nearly 20 years the power station has remained in very nice condition. Visit Last stop for the day on a Euro trip with @darbians. We both wanted to see this site so we decided it was worth having a quick look before it got too dark. Even though it wasn't a large site there was still a good amount to photograph, in fact I wish I took more but here are the ones I did manage to get. (Excuse the awkward handheld shot) (Getting pretty dark by this point so we called it a day) Hope you enjoyed reading my report.

  6. Haus der Offiezere My first report. I have had this account for about a year but never posted anything from fear of my photos not being good enough to post. Decided to pluck up the courage to start contributing more but I apologise if there are any mistakes. Anyway, on to the history! History The Haus der Offiezere was originally established as a shooting range between Kummersdorf and Jüterbog in 1888. It wasn't until 1910, when construction of the Berlin to Dresden railway line took place, it was decided that Wunsdorf held a significant strategic advantage and because of this it became a military headquarters two years following. A telephone and telegraph office was built in 1912. By the start of the first world war, Wunsdorf had already become Europe's largest military base, boasting 60,000 acres of land. A year later, the first mosque was built in Germany on the site. This was to accommodate for the Muslim prisoners of war which were housed there. They were known as the Halbmondlager or Crescent Moon camp. After the war, the Wunsdorf Headquarters was converted into a military sports school in 1919. It was even used to train athletes for the Olympic games in Berlin in 1936. During the uprising of the Third Reich, a network of highly modernised tunnels and bunkers were built, including a communications centre, known as the Zeppelin. A year Maybach I and II were built which coincided with the Zeppelin bunker. A ring tunnel connected all the bunkers to each other and were disguised as ordinary homes on the ground, to avoid suspicion. The construction of these bunkers wasn't completed until 1940, a year after war was declared. From 1943 the Haus der Offiezere was temporarily converted into a hospital to treat wounded German soldiers. Two years later, in 1945 the Red Army had invaded East Germany and quickly seized control of Wunsdorf. This was when it was renamed the Haus der Offiezere which translates to House of the Officer. During Soviet occupation of Wunsdorf in the GDR, the Haus der Offiezere became a place of art and culture. The former sports halls and gymnasiums were torn down and replaced with elaborate theatres and concert halls. Daily deliveries of supplies came all the way from Moscow on a direct train line and the locals nicknamed it 'little Moscow' due to the number of roughly 60,000 Russian inhabitants. This continued for almost 50 years, until the reunification of Germany when it was handed back. The last remaining Russians eventually left in 1994 and it has remained unoccupied since. Visit The photos I have compiled for this post were taken on two separate occasions. Wanted to give a good representation of the location, as there is a lot to see. Unfortunately some of my photographs were taken when I first started getting into the hobby, so I hope they do enough justice and excuse the quality of said images. Second visit was on a solo trip to Germany, giving me plenty of time to mooch. Would consider the Haus der Offiezere one of my favourite locations and I hope you enjoy my report. Externals Internals Thank you for reading.

  9. 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. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 - Title: What Everyone Should Know about Sexuality and Potency 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 Thanks for watching.

  11. The former hotel has been closed in 2007 and from the outside the building was unmistakably abandoned. But inside, it largely looked as if you only have to perform a few beauty repairs in order to use the hotel again. My visit was already in 2012. I was told that the entrances were sealed later. I don't know what has become with it today. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47
  12. The small open-air swimming pool was built in the 1950s for kids until the age of 14 only. It has been abandoned for a couple of years now.
  13. The old children´s hospital was opened in the 1960s when it was relocated from the original building, which was built around the turn of the century. Personally, visiting the old children´s hospital felt very special to me, as I, a premature baby, had to spent the first weeks of my life in this facility - on the top floor and high above the rooftops of my native town. Of course, my memories of this stay can´t even be described as "vague", as I have none at all. Yet, my exploration of this place remains special to me. I really enjoyed the view across the city - consciously this time and probably as one of the last ones who received this opportunity.
  14. This abandoned porcellain manufactur was founded at the end of the 19th century. It produced until 1974 when it went bankrupt and finally folded. #1 DSC05275 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC05230 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC05220 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC05221 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC05237 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC05231 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC05232 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC05247 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC05262 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC06557 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC06558 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC05253 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC05264 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC06578 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC06559 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC06574 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC05266 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC06564 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC05271 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC06562 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC06565 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC06566 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC05251 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC06571 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC06573 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC06575 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC06576 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC06577 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #29 DSC05261 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  15. I visited the chocolate factory already more than four years ago. Inside it was partly very dark - much darker than it looks in the photos. The plaster had fallen from the ceiling; a gray damp mud lay on the floor and stuck stubbornly to the shoes. After the owner died, the factory was closed over 20 years ago. The widow of the manufacturer still lives in a dilapidated house next to the factory. In the past years, the condition has worsened a lot. Meanwhile, the roof of the former factory has almost completely collapsed. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
  16. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. A former ballhaus somewhere in the eastern of Germany. At the moment they are renovating the building and for a small amount of money you can get acces for taking photographs.
  17. 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9: 10: 11: 12: 13: A legal visit during a photo base on 21-10-2017. Felt like a last chance because renovation is being prepared. We could notice the painting done during the filming of 'a cure for wellness' very well since we did the bathhouse an men's complex illegal in 2016. Still an impressive location of course and the photo's won't be much of a surprise i guess. I already had a fascination for abandoned buildings, but my first visit at Beelitz Heilstatten in 2014 really kicked of my passion for photography of the abandoned world. Hope you enjoyed viewing this thread! grts, Peter
  18. 1: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 2: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 3: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 4: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 5: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr We visited this Villa in may of this year. Seems the owner is a bit more cautious these days and sents people away sometimes being a bit aggressive. We only dealt with 2 people getting flowers in the garden which left us alone after giving us a 'dark' look after i said 'photography, ok?' Great Villa must have been impressive when the director of the nearby chocolate factory lived here. The factory we didn't explore, to many people outside. grts, Peter
  19. For many years this aquaprk has been the main attraction of a bavarian spa town.

  22. A few years ago I visited this lovely greenhouse. Unfortunately I never managed to get there at the perfect season or daytime. But luckily it's not over 'till the fat lady sings. As a goodie i found, hidden below a canvas, a fantastic old Opel (last admission ten years ago). I will surely go there again - at least in order to learn manual focussing. #1 DSC03645 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC03634 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC03627 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC03623 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC03630 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC03631 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC03641 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC03640 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC03637 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC03635 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC05041-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC03819-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC05024-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC05023-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC05021-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC05014-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC05036-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
