Other K&K, Austria - August 2016

Recommended Posts

Evening All!


This beauty was one of the places we visited on a recent trip around europe, and what a trip it was! 9 days, 7 countries and over 4,500 miles! It was certainly a trip to remember, from camping in the alps under thousands of stars one one of the clearest nights i've ever seen, to being inches from becoming stranded in czech in the middle of the night. We met some strange, somewhat crazy and definitely unique characters on our travels, from a tree growing hippie to a lovely old man taking care of a power station. It was so draining - getting by on minimal sleep, but an array of mcdonalds breakfasts, takeaways and cheep beer certainly helped! 


This was a beautiful place we done in austria, but i didn't get my hopes up too much - i'd heard it was sealed but we were passing so gave it a go anyway. Persistence paid off and after a while of searching we found a way in, and in the middle of a sunny sunday afternoon we slipped in one by one, attempting to get in undetected by the many passing by. A little eager to get in, bags were bundled through the hole and into the basement - not realising the floor had been removed, so it soon turned into a game of balance on the metal framework :lol: 


Once inside the scale of the place hit me, especially the grandeur of the staircases - definitely one of my favourite to date. We spent a good couple of hours here, sweltering in the heat before hitting the road to my friends house. We arrived just as the sun was setting, and my what a beautiful view he has. He told me he had a wine cellar, but i didnt realise the size until i stepped down and saw a monumental amount of alcohol. we certainly made a small dent in that, along with loads of pizza and a fire under the stars.











As always, thanks for looking!:thumb

      Since 1961, a one-room grocery store has been operating in the countryside. In the other part of the building lived the shop owners. Later, the store belonged to other people, until 1992, when it left the Russian government, it was closed because it no longer met the requirements of the store. People were still living in the building, when they died, he was abandoned

      A couple of days ago I went up into a local forest to search for a tiny old school.
      There are no location details online so it kind of was like looking for a needle in a haystack so finding something was better than nothing at all

      This is inside of a factory that was once used for producing the somewhat famous Pandur-Tanks. 
      This area of the factory closed sometime in 2015/16, with first signs showing as early as 2010. At first the company decided to restructure by stopping production and only using the plant at this location for tank maintenance, service and repair. When this decision was finalized about 60% of employees were dismissed. Reasoning - there wasn't enough demand for new vehicles. In late 2016 the police was called to a so called "illegal rave" that was held in one of the former production halls. Tens of thousands of euros in equipment were left behind.
