Tank Regiment G.

As final spot for our short tour of Eastern Germany in June of last year, Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland and I chose the location of an East German tank regiment that used to be part of the 8th Mobile Artillery Division.
Getting there was easy; finding a parking spot wasn't. Later I found out that there would have been a good opportunity on another side of the area, but at the time, we took what we found and that was right at the entrance.
It worked out nicely, the place was easily accessible, and the first building was a little jackpot right away, because we found a really cool projector room complete with projectors. It was only a little trashed unlike the rest of the place, so we managed to get quite a few nice shots there.
The other buildings were mostly barracks and empty halls. Some nice decay was also to be found.
When we reached the active part of the area which is used by some company, we turned around and went back to the car.
Just as we had left and were turning on the main road, a police car came and passed us, turning and driving right to were we had parked.
They turned around again, followed us for some time at some distance and were gone at some point.
Guess we were lucky not to get caught.

Police Ammunition Depot B.

Another short stop on the tour I took through Eastern Germany together with Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland late in June of last year was this former ammunition depot.
Where decades ago ammunition was stored for the East German Police and the "Northern German Combat Groups", now only the bunkers remain - and they have been turned into bat habitats. The entire area is being renaturised along with so-called "insect-hotels". Except for the bunkers, all other buildings have been demolished and the area is freely accessible.
So we just parked the car and went for a short walk in the park.

Railway Station K.

The tour through Eastern Germany together with Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland in June of last year was particularly nice in terms of locations, because there were some nice unexpected spots along the road.
This abandoned train station was one of them.
We drove around a curve and there it was. We hit the brakes, turned around and drove right onto the premises. There was no access to any of the buildings, and we didn't want to anger the neighbours by climbing around too much, so we restricted ourselves to walking around and taking photos.
The station was built in the early 1880s, and some of the original installations are still left and haven't been used for a long time...
Every two hours, a train passes by this station. None of them ever stop. It looks like this old station has been passed by time itself...
