History

Once the magnificent property in East Germany housed a spa building. Around 1950, the building was converted into a hotel, which was given the name of a Duchess. In the 90s, it was closed for cost reasons, since it decays visibly.

 

The Explore

Access was easy; the front door was locked, but some open windows and a open door at the back.
My first visit was in 2011. Now I returned to see how the building has changed over the past seven years.

Many ceilings and floors had collapsed meanwhile, and some areas I could't enter therefore. Unfortunately, some things were destroyed by vandalism or were stolen. For example, all banisters and the ornamented window arches. But on the other hand, the natural decay of the past few years has been very interesting.

Really like these 'before and after' reports of yours. Great to see the difference but sad at the same time :(

Really nice Andy, literally just finished looking through your album on FB for this one. I love that green in number 19! Really like those paintings? On the wall in 11 too. :thumb

photo #7 ...doesn't look like there'd be even enough room to stand if the floor was there????

 

The upper room was really low, that's right. But you could stand in it, even if the ceiling wasn't very high. Nothing for tall people ...

But maybe they canged the high of some ceilings when the building was converted into a hotel, I think.

Oh I see. Yeah looks like us short people would be ok but no one much taller than that! :p. Must have been altered like you mentioned at some point

      Although I knew Villa Anna L. has been destroyed over the last years I definately had to visit the location as it is the origin of my interest in lost places and photography in general. So thanks Anna L. You are the reason of many trips into fascinating places and journeys back in time all over Europe (at least southern Europe and Germany).

      This small family crypt was built by a bavarian count in the middle of the 19th century.  Burried are his wife and their son who died at the age of 17.
      Unfortunately vandalism stops at nothing. 99%  of graffities in LPs are crap. In this particular case the creator outed himself to be 100% idiot! 😖😂

      An abandoned Italian villa next to the road. Nothing really special, because unfortunately stripped, but at least still with a few nice ceilings. 
      Due to the holey floors and cracked stairs, it was partially a bit tricky to enter the upper floors to photograph the ceiling paintings. But everything went well, without any crash or collapse.
