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).

Recently we visited the Jean Monnet building of the European Commission in Luxembourg city, which is about to be demolished.
The building was closed because they discovered asbestos in the air in block C. Unfortunately, we came too late and the most interesting part (Conference Centre) was already destroyed, but we managed to see the offices (mostly empty) and the sport centre with swimming pool in the basement.
If you decide to go there, don't go to the building C, especially the lower floors!!! They have started demolishing them, we came in to one of the floors, and saw a creepy room completely covered with white film, from floor to ceiling, including doors and windows. Apparently, to protect the workers from asbestos. Just don't go there)
Otherwise, buildings A and B are still fine. The keys on one of the pictures are from the data centre. It's now empty, they only left the keys)
Here are also a couple of maps in case if someone wants to visit the place.
The most interesting thing is that the building is guarded. Security are there 24/7. They are outside near building A, so be careful with the lights! At the level 2, at the border between buildings A and B, I left a short note on the side of one of escalators. You can try to find it) See the last picture, and the place is marked with big yellow circle on one of the maps.
I want to tell a funny story that happened recently in Luxembourg city.
We decided to climb a crane. When we were at the top, someone spotted us and apparently called police, but we left before they arrived.
What happened further. We cleaned our clothes, and after a while decided to go home, but we were too lazy to walk around the district and just passed by the construction site again. I noticed a police car next to the entrance. While driving away, they saw us, stopped and started asking:
- Were that you who just climbed a crane here?
- No. That's not us.
- Are you sure?
- Yes, we are.
After that they let us go)))
I'd like to write a positive feedback on the work of our police, really)
