Bismarck-Tower W.

Bismarck-Towers have been a fashionable thing during a certain time in the German past, so a lot of them were built, and you can find one in almost every region in Germany.
The region we chose for our tour in May of last year was no different, so we decided to enjoy the nice weather and climb ourselves a Bismarck-Tower.
It was pretty easy - the steel door was open, and we simply walked up the stairs.
There are a lot of cracks in the walls and there's always the uneasy feeling of the thing possibly collapsing any minute, but we took a couple of shots and returned to the bottom unharmed.

Eye Clinic N.

We still had some time and a lot of daylight left when we were finished exploring the old clinic, so we decided to check out another location that was not too far from the first spot.
The object in question used to be a hotel which in its final years was reused as a luxurious eye-clinic.
We found a public parking lot not too far away and walked the rest of the way.
If it hadn't been too overgrown, the place could have been (and probably was) a really nice lakeview property, but now it's only a rotting corpse inside an ever-growing forest.
We could've taken the easy way in, but there were just too many people walking around or driving their bikes enjoying the sun, and we decided to take the less obvious way.
We took the path everyone else was using and at some point, disappeared into the bushes. From there, it was only a short walk until we reached the location.
The door was open, so we were in and out of sight in no time.
The abandoned clinic itself was pretty unspectacular. The most notable feature were huge black spiders that were sitting in almost every corner, so in spite of the warm weather, everone had put on their hoods - just in case...
I could very well imagne this being a small, exclusive hotel, but in the end, nothing is left of former glories...

Hospital M. [Revisit]

Only a week after our first successful exploration of this huge abandoned hospital, we returned to this cool place. This time, my wife and I were accompanied by our friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex, who had shared at least one of my unseccessful attempts in the past.
And this time, we found a much better way that allowed us to check out the areas we had missed the first time around.
We found the spa area with the swimming pool and the medicinal baths, and we found some of the operating rooms. Unfortuantely, all of the equipment has been moved when the ospital operation was closed down here.
Still, it was a great place, and from what I hear, the access we used has since been closed down and at the moment, there is no chance of getting in...
