High Society - Abandoned Ballroom

After the "German Reich" was founded in 1871, the population of the cities began to grow and at the same time the people developed the demand for diversified entertainment in their spare time.
In the suburban region of this particular city new residential districts were built, as well as establishments for water sports. Regatta courses were laid in 1880 and various leisure facilities were built.

In the time of this trend, clubs for rowing, sailing and canoeing were founded on the river and built the corresponding boathouses.

At the end of the 19th century, a couple of restaurants for day-trippers had been built to cater for the well-being of the sportsmen and visitors.

This here is one of them. Built in 1898 and abandoned in 1991, its most sepcatcular feature is the huge beautiful ballroom with a ceiling height of 9 meters.
The building itself is in danger of collapsing, and a visit is not really recommended.

Here are the first couple of pictures.
