Germany Victoria Barracks (visited 02/2016)

Recommended Posts

A well known Oldie.

From 1956 to 1970, the barracks was used by the Canadian Forces. Also, the radio station "CAE - Radio Canadian Army Europe" had here its location until 1970. This was the first Canadian radio station in Germany.

From 1970 to 1994 British soldiers were stationed in the barracks. The buildings decayed since the closure of 1994 - two churches, the former cinema, the crew quarters, the sports hall and a bowling alley.

I liked the decay, but the graffitis really bothered me. 

In summer the place is nicer, when plants grow inside the buildings.

I love that sports hall, those big windows or what have been windows and the spectator section at the side. Quite like this Andy, the graf would bother me too.

      During the Cold War, this bunker was built as an auxiliary hospital.
      The overlying school was opened in the 60s while the hospital was officially inaugurated in the 80s.
      It offered 2,370 places and never went into operation.
      At the turn of the millennium, it was relieved of its responsibilities, the inventory transferred to other states, and the hospital will be soon demolished.

      The location combined hotel, bar and cinema.
      The operation was discontinued in the 90's.
      It used to be the meeting place in this small, rural community, today the decay continues incessantly.

      In these buildings was produced from 1900 to 2009.
      However, the origin of production goes back to the 14th century.

      The rehab center consists of several buildings in very different state of preservation. While some rooms of the spa hotel still look almost as good as new, an outbuilding (possibly former apartments of employees) is already partially collapsing.
      Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history.
