France U-Verlagerung W, France - October 2017

Recommended Posts

The first stop on a recent trip to France and Luxembourg with @Andy. A former limestone mine in France, later used during WW2 for the production of oxygen. Quite a small  mine and mostly flooded but there were some nice photos to be had.

      A nice French farmhouse, located on the edge of a small village in southern Alsace.

      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.

      In the region of Bourgogne in France there was an old man living in a little village with his 5 dogs and his donkey. Once he has been a successful rallye driver and a car developer working in Nizza.
      He decided to collect the cars he used once and behind his house you could find a huge collection of rarely old racing cars decayed by nature.
      But that was not enough, he also collected cars around his garage and on a little estate a few hundred meters away from his house.
      Firstly we went there in 2016 but the old man wasn't there, so we had no chance to take a look at his sporting car collection and also no way to see his garage.
      Sadly we walked around and by chance we found the other estate few hundred meters away. Once it has been a normal field and now it was a thick forest.
      Never seen old cars became a part of the nature like this before. We were absolutely enchanted of this place and that's the reason why we called it 'Magic Forest'.
      We couldn't finish to shoot the cars cause sunset was coming.  We decided to come back to this wonderful place to meet the old guy and to see his other collection.
      But at our next visit his house was demolished. The old decayed cars were laying on an heap and the digger was still running. We met the daughter of the old man there and she told us that he died.
      She will bring  the hole area back to a field and depollute the cars. The really expensive cars she put into a closed hall and maybe sell it. Damn this was a little shock for us.
      The demolishing of our 'Magic Forest' had already began but fortunately we could see the most of it again for last time.
      Now everything is gone.
      Everyone who shooted cars already knows that it's often not easy with the space and the light. Same here...

      The hostel on the mountain, opened in the 1960s or earlier, was a simple accommodation.
      Last guest reviews complain about lack of comfort and high prices for an overnight stay. Last one night in a 5-bed room cost 40 euros per person. In the dining room there was no selection of different meals to order, but only a simple daily special for all.
      In the summer of 2011, the hostel was finally closed.

      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.
