Although this is not one of the most spectacular places I want to introduce to you my visit of this former soccer club as I really love the story behind it. 

 

Founded in 1908 the FC Germ 08 provided a very inglorious but funny story in 2008. Driven by desire of success the club had installed a new chairman who invested in expensive players - expensive on the level of the 8th German soccer league. Unfortunately it soon turned out that the money was misappropriate so the chairman was sentenced to jail. Due to this scandal all the good players left the club. So in the following season the team came off extremely  bad. The team  suffered one setback after another and had to accept 508 goals against in one season. ? So the team attracted the German media's attention and titled "the worst Soccer Club on earth".
Attracted by the media's attention players and officials of FC Germ 08 had some very disturbing appearances in the German TV shows. Subjected to ridiculousness the club decided to unregister all teams for the next to season. ??? For one year the teams were trained at the clubs area but did'nt participate in any match.

In 2011 the club started anew. In 2016 the FC Germ 08 became insolvent.

Wow, I didn't realise financial irregularities happened in German football. Always a shame when stuff like that happens, not fair for the loyal fans. 

Nice little explore though. Nice to see a stadium pop up

In its most successfull times FC Germ 08 was in the 8th German League.  I'd call it a rural farce.

      Built at the end of the 19th century the Volksheilstätte was used as a hospital for lung deseases until the middle of the 20th century. In the following years it was converted into an hospital for juvenile mental ill patients.

      The last few days I travelled through Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt to  visit some spots I always wanted to see.  One of those places was Hotel Atlantis and its beautiful decay.

      History
      This coal mine was established in 1910 and was funded by the Prussian empire. This facility contained two elevator towers. In 1912 the construction began on a cokes plant right next to the coal mine. 
      In 1943 the mine shut down due to the second world war, after 6 years the mine reopened again. With this reopening there was also a major renovation, with this renovation there was a larger modern elevator added to the facility. In 1998 the facility was bought by a big coal mining corporation which owned 5 other coal mines. In 2008 the  98 year old coal mining facility was closed down by the government. The historic part is currently being restored and the part that was renovated after the war will probably be torn down.

      The entrance was *access details removed*. when we got in we first went trough a whole system with conveyer belts, after that we ended up in the huge coal washery. after we explored this part we went up into the elevator tower. The tower was 10 floors high so we were quite tired then we were on the tower but it was really worth it, in the tower there was an enormous electrical lift motor which was really nice to take pictures from. It was a really cool place to explore, I really enjoyed it!
