  1. Somewhere in Germany, in a quiet park, lie those beautiful Tanks. Quiet park ? Not really, a military barrack nearby often throws training in this park, as the sign explained us kindly. 😂 We were lucky enough to dodge those training, even if i'm pretty sure it doesn't happen more than once a month, but still. We were not able to find which type of tanks it was, i read on the internet that it could be some M40 Patton or M41 Walker Bulldog, but i'm skeptical, as both of them were produced in the early 50's and were used in vietnam war and korea war, far from Germany. And, as they were demilitarized and trashed, the clues were hard to find. However, it was like a scene of war, one Tank crashed near a tree, another one half buried, very dramatic. Even if it was a short one, it was a very good exploration, with a lot of interesting light and very cool models.
  2. An abandoned beacon in the baltic sea. There are two of it. One 1000m and the other one in 4000m distance from the runway. Ther were used to enlarge the range of the runway ...so the pilots could navigate easier to the short runway. Build and used by the NVA. The army of the former GDR... (DDR).
  3. Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose! Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air. My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK. There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works. The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.
  4. This one was visited on my latest trip through Germany. This was the water treatment facility of a power plant. That power plant is already gone. There were also some outdoor water basins ,but they were well overgrown. The only thing I took from this facility were several mosquito's bites.

  5. When Robert Montgomery showed his exhibition "All Palaces" in Berlin in 2012, probably few have expected how limited the time of the Stattbad will be and how right he should be with his light sculpture "All Palaces are Temporary Palaces". Four years later, the location, once known internationally for music, art and culture, has already been demolished. Designed by the architect Ludwig Hoffmann and inaugurated in 1907, the bathhouse was initially used by numerous factory workers in the area, as the tenements were then equipped without showers and bathtubs. There was a large pool for the men and a small one for the women. During the Second World War, the main building was badly damaged, but rebuilt in the 50s until the bathing operation was discontinued in 1999. After a short vacancy, the STATTBAD Wedding was reopened with the exhibition "No more sugar for the monkeys" and quickly gained a prestigious reputation. As an event location, the building attracted numerous artists through its preserved 60s aesthetic. On the upper floors there were permanently used ateliers, the two dry-laid pools were used for exhibitions, concerts and parties, the best known being the STATTNÄCHTE with its numerous well-known Djs. The photos shown here were taken in mid-May 2015, shortly after the closure due to a lack of building security measures. Jochen and his coworkers did not suspect that day that they had already left their last working day in this place behind. Meanwhile, only the curtain wall of the building remains, but new palaces are planned here, probably student apartments. More pictures of this huge location can be found here -> http://www.patrick-hertel.de/stattbad/
  6. One of a Kind Acoustic Places ! Never seen anything like this Fuel Storage of the NVA Troops in Germany
  7. My first real Urban Exploration was done on that airfield. This is where it all began for me and it wasn't even that long ago! The airfield opened in 1936, initially for the usage for civilian air traffic such as sport flying (if that's a word). Not only that but the area was also used for construction of various aircraft-related mechanisms and for supporting the army with weapon technology during the Second World War. The Red Army took over operations after WW2 which explains the signs with cyrillic writing.

  8. A few weeks ago I visited an old abandonend chocolate factory in the south-west of Germany. The rainy day normally suits the shabby mood of the environment but of course requires long exposure. Unfortunately I forgot to turn off steady shot (camera shake compensation) so 50% of my pics turned out to be blurry. 😖 Shit happens! #1 Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC01819-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC01822-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC01860-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC01861-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC01868-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC01864-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC01866-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC01863-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC01867-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC01834-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC01851-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC01823-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC01849-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC01856-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC01857-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC01858-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC01854-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

  10. I found this tank at a former military trainig area around Munich. The associated casern was closed in 2001. The tank was used as military target once. It is the only one left of originally 5 tanks. #1 DSC01446-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC01447-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC01449-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC01452-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC01460-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC01483-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr Rosinante and tank
  11. To discover such a time capsule always gives you a lot of pleasure. Whereby you can not speak of small here, because in this beautiful place there were many motifs over several floors. Starting with a huge cellar that was filled to the ceiling with unused materials, over several floors that were used for the production of clothing to an attic that was converted into a warehouse disused for sewing machines. However, the long history of the company is relatively fast to tell. A brave entrepreneur founded a small factory in the mid-19th century whose productivity could be increased very quickly. When the GDR emerged, the company was expropriated to disappear after the turnaround because they had missed the ravages of time. Meanwhile, you can not enjoy this time capsule so much, because after the discovery of the object, it was not long before much was destroyed and stolen, which ultimately led to the city secured the building and walled the entrances.

  12. Although this is not one of the most spectacular places I want to introduce to you my visit of this former soccer club as I really love the story behind it. Founded in 1908 the FC Germ 08 provided a very inglorious but funny story in 2008. Driven by desire of success the club had installed a new chairman who invested in expensive players - expensive on the level of the 8th German soccer league. Unfortunately it soon turned out that the money was misappropriate so the chairman was sentenced to jail. Due to this scandal all the good players left the club. So in the following season the team came off extremely bad. The team suffered one setback after another and had to accept 508 goals against in one season. ? So the team attracted the German media's attention and titled "the worst Soccer Club on earth". Attracted by the media's attention players and officials of FC Germ 08 had some very disturbing appearances in the German TV shows. Subjected to ridiculousness the club decided to unregister all teams for the next to season. ??? For one year the teams were trained at the clubs area but did'nt participate in any match. In 2011 the club started anew. In 2016 the FC Germ 08 became insolvent. #1 DSC01422-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC01407-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC01411-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC01413-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC01406-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC01403-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC01417-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC01421-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC01420-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC01419-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  13. Last weekend I visited this small power station. I'm not really sure but assume that it has been part of spinning factory back in the days. A few years ago it has been used by a local blacksmith but is abandoned again. #1 DSC01402-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC01371-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC01367-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC01338-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC01347-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC01350-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC01351-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC01364-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC01359-Bearbeitet-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC01377-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC01378-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC01379-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC01389-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC01392-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC01388-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC01385-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC01386-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC01376-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC01373-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Two weeks ago I decided to visit a small mill that I had on my list for a long time. At Google Maps I saw two buildings that turned out to be the mill and the miller's residential building. I did'nt expect too much but was very happy in the end. Although the mill is abandoned for many years it is in a very good condition - not graffiti, very little vandalism. The miller seems to have been very passionate for two things: beer and photography. Good guy!

  18. In January I visited this abandoned part of a hospital that is still in use.

  19. History The holiday home was built around 1905 and used as a hotel for almost 50 years. In the mid-1950s, it was converted into a recreation home of the NVA (National People's Army of the former German Democratic Republic). The house was closed and abandoned in the 1990s and in 2003 it was bought by a businessman from Heilbronn. However, for this person it apparently only serves as a deduction product for the tax return. Because instead of investing and bringing the building back to life, he ignored it, so it fell into decay. In recent years, the house has been used as a sleeping place by homeless people and has repeatedly been vandalized. On the upper floor, almost all walls are completely sprayed with very bad graffiti now, but I haven't taken any photos of them. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
  20. History After the beginning of the 1860s gas was widely used as a means of lighting So the first gas works of Eisenach were put into operation on 1 October 1862. However, the line capacity was no longer sufficient soon, because the gas consumption had quadrupled from 1888 to 1912. Therefore, the construction of the new gas works began in 1898, and the old gas works were shut down in 1899. The new gas works had its own rail connection for coal transport. In 1901, already more than 1.5 million m³ of city gas were produced. In 1912 there were a total of 938 public gas lanterns in Eisenach. The street lighting cost 46600 marks per year, equivalent to 1.20 marks per inhabitant. In 1912, 150 gas lanterns were remotely ignited and extinguished from the factory. This saved considerable costs for lantern guards. 300 street lamps were still under construction. In 1982, the gas plant's technical facilities were worn out and barely usable efficiently. For this reason, the gas plant was shut down. Until 1990, the area was still used as a transfer station for coal trains. After that, the buildings were abandoned, since then, they disintegrate. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
  21. Information about this old brewery is rare. It must have been shut down in the late 1990's when the owner built a modern one in order to increase productivity. #1 DSC00779-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC00781-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC00780-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC00788-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC00830-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC00793-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC00797-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC00801-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC00802-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC00804-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC00806-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC00817-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC00825-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  22. On first sight, there´s only a plain building hidden between bushes and coniferes. It´s located on the grounds of a former Soviet military base in Germany. It seems to be like other barracks, nothing special. Yet, while approaching the barrack, attached high walls with barbed wire appear forming a small yard. Rustling branches of the trees which are now growing all over the yard and an icy wind add to the somewhat eerie atmosphere. On entering the building, the darkness is starting to hit you in an instant. Only sparse light shines in. Additionally, the walls were painted with dark and unfriendly colours. Surely, not without reason - simple, yet efficient psychologial means. Here, at the latest, the purpose of the building becomes crystal-clear: it was used as a jail by the Soviet occupiers. What kind of offenses were punished with a stay inside one of these dark cells with bald walls - only equipped with some wooden plank beds - is unknown. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
  23. I found this small house in the woods near Munich. Almost cleared it still got a certain charme as it hides a little local treasure - the mask of a Krampus. The Krampus is a figure appearing in the Bavarian tradition of St. Nicholas. Whilst St. Nicholas rewards the brave kids on the 6th of December the Krampus dsiciplines the naughty ones. Each year on the 5th of December there are Krampus walks in the Bavarian cities. A group of Krampus dressed in fur and scary masks walk through the cities trying to frighten the kids. The kids on the other hand try to annoy the Krampus without getting disciplined. These handcrafted wooden masks are often very old an therefore quite precious - at least in a traditional sense. Typical scene from the Krampus walk. But now back the main topic - Haus Krampus #1 DSC09942-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC09939-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC09915-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC09916-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC09940-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC09919-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC09922-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC09930-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC09912-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC09927-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC09932-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC09914-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC09910-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC09913-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC09925-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC09911-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

  25. The Spa house was built within three years in the mid-20th century. It offered space for 100 beds and has an auditorium with 540 seats. Inside of the theater it was so dark that I had to expose about 2 minutes despite high ISO. The other rooms were empty or locked, so I took no pictures there. 1 2 3 4 5
