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 ...

      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!

      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.
