Germany Currywurst Tour, Germany, August 2016

Recommended Posts

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.

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.
