I found this small house in the woods near Munich. Almost cleared it still got a certain charme as it hides a little local treasure - the mask of a Krampus.

The Krampus is a figure appearing in the Bavarian tradition of St. Nicholas. Whilst St. Nicholas rewards the brave kids on the 6th of December the Krampus dsiciplines the naughty ones. Each year on the 5th of December there are Krampus walks in the Bavarian cities.  A group of Krampus dressed in fur and scary masks walk through the cities trying to frighten the kids. The kids on the other hand try to annoy the Krampus without getting disciplined. 
These handcrafted wooden masks are often very old an therefore quite precious - at least in a traditional sense.

Typical scene from the Krampus walk. 

But now back the main topic - Haus Krampus

Nice find. I like the view through the door to the kitchen on the third picture.

      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.

      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.

      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.
