What amazes me is that this is a well trodden place and its been nearly a year since I've been there the first time and it still looks great.

Nice photos too btw :)

It's stayed almost totally intact since it was abandoned in 1995 which is an astonishing feat considering how well trodden it is in these circles, it really shows the respect for places like this over the water.

These little places continue to amaze me in the fact they're left untouched and forgotten, completely different mentality to the 'lets wreck it' attitude of the UK. Of course media coverage doesn't help. It's probably a good thing there's no history on the place, if it was well known it wouldn't look like that!

Excellent set mate.

Damn right, couldn't have put it better!

It also helps this place is in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, with residents living opposite who, from personal experience and stories I've heard don't really mind photographers going in, but I bet if they heard any idiots milling around they'd be right on it!

Bloody nice shot this. Sad to say it doesn't look like this now, it's definitely starting to get trashed. One of my favourites from my first visit to Belgium in the summer and since my return the other day, well, lets say you can see the difference. Still worth going to though but the magic isn't quite the same. Fuck, I hope this doesn't go the way of Potters.

Me and Mr. Saint used it for the exact same purpose fella, though we dropped in early enough to get some shots in the last of the days light. Not a bad place for a kip even if I kept us up most of night with ghost stories. :D

      Town Mansion 
       
       
      History
       
      The Town Mansion was originally built in 1912 by a wealthy petroleum importer. During the early 20th century, the area in which the mansion was built, had become a hub for many rich German families in the early 1900's. By 1918, once the First World War had come to an end and the town was heavily damaged by the intense bombing raids at the start of the war and then German occupation of Belgium in 1914. Only two houses in that street survived, the Town Mansion being one of those. It was then later occupied by a Belgium shipbuilder until the late 1960's, when it was used as an office space. The mansion was abandoned in 1991 and hasn't been formally resided in since.
       
       
      Visit
       
      Visited with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M and a non forum member. As I recall it was a particularly hot spring day and we all excited to see this location, partly to escape from the intense heat. Once we got inside we spent a short amount of time wandering around before we eagerly started taking our pictures. I can confidentially say that this is one of the grandest mansions in Belgium I have visited. I did wonder what the lives of the families that once inhabited it were like and the memories they must have had. It was a very enjoyable explore for me and as always, I hope you enjoy my photos!

      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.

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      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.
