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.
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).
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.
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!
