Germany Rehabilitation clinic / Physical therapy centre (visited 11/2012) - pic heavy

Recommended Posts

 

Another exploration from the past.

 

History

In the area were several mining operations in the 19th century and many of the miners suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis.

Therefore, in 1897, a sanatorium for the patients with lung disease and anemia was founded. In 1975, this sanatorium was converted into a rehabilitation clinic with physical therapy centre. It was closed in 2002.

In January 2009, the former clinic was vandalized for the first time. Unknown people broke into the building and sprayed several fire extinguishers. The police search for the perpetrators remained fruitless.

After many years of vacancy, there are plans to convert the building into apartments.

 

My visit

The large, L-shaped building had four floors and a newer extension. Exploring the interior was fascinating. The kitchen was almost completely furnished with stoves, large pots, cookware and much more. In many areas there were still furniture and interesting details, and on the lower floor the bathrooms and a swimming pool. I spent several hours there; it was lonely and quiet, and definitely a really worthwhile visit.

So much interesting stuff to see and very nicely photographed, as usual. 

Looks like the patients were well looked after there.

That's a spectacular looking place to photograph @Andy, literally a little bit of everything. Particularly like the body-lift for the swimming pool :)

Realllly nice place mate. Reminds me a lot of a more intact Raupennest.

 

 

 

 I also was in "Raupennest" four years ago. Last year I received an unfriendly email from the new manager of the building. He wrote me that I had to delete the photos immediately ...

      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.

      A location I did on my own . After a nice walk I reached the site. Some parts of there seems still t be in use. One building had some new looking alarms and no windows were damaged.
      First building I tried seems lead to nothing. Walked in a cellar with still a lot of cables, a new looking fusebox and no trash. There was no way to go further up so I tried the other buildings.
      Still needed to do some climbing but then the explore could start. It looked like a small coal mine the closes a few decades ago. Spent there a few hours.  At one moment there was a car going over the terrain.
      Not sure if it was security or not but I waited hidden in a dark corner of the building for some time. Nothing happened and I started going to the exit.
      Hope you enjoy the picture.
