Abandoned Hospital - The Clinic E.

Also check out Part 2 and Part 3.

I have had my eyes on this object somewhere in northern Germany for quite some time now and I am really happy that yesterday I got my first and possibly only chance for a visit.
The hospital was built in the years 1907-1910 as a military hospital.
There are some very dark spots in its history, as key Nazi officials used it as a hiding place during the final days of World War II.
For example, Weapons-SS Major General Dr. Karl Gebhardt - personal physician for Heinrich Himmler and responsible for the pseudo-medical experiments in the concentration camps, spent his last days here in the disguise of a Red Cross General, and the Nazis' chief ideologist, Alfred Rosenberg, was arrested here.




After the war, the hospital was taken over and run by the city until it was closed down in 1988, and until 1998, it was used as a shelter for refugees from the former East Block states.




There are all sorts of urban legends about this place being haunted. Of course, these old, gothic-style buildings sometimes do have an eerie atmosphere, but it's really the architecture and the way the decay eats through everything, constantly changing the colors, the textures, the entire look of a building...
