In February of this year, my wife and I went on a three-day tour together with our friend Freddy (Nordgriller Urbex).
The main location that we had planned for this trip was an old power station - a huge place with vast halls and tons of rusty steel!
Of course, we had checked for a couple of spots on the way south to keep us occupied during the five-hour drive to the hotel. The first spot, however, was not on any of our lists. There was a traffic jam on the highway, so we took the back roads to get around it. And as always, we kept our eyes open. It's one of the things you learn pursuing this hobby - keep your eyes open, you never know what's around the next corner.
This is especially true for Eastern Germany. You can drive around the countryside and are bound to bump into a couple of lost places.
It was no different with this spot. We were driving through a small village when suddenly we spotted a beautiful old wooden house with an overgrown garden. By the time we realized what we had seen, we were around the corner, so we stopped, turned around and went back.
We were not really sure at first. The house did still look good from the outside, and there were fairly new trash on the premises. It was right in the middle of the village, but I got out of the car snd went for a quick check. The fence had been trampled down some time ago and the front door was open!
So we went in. There had obviously some renovation measures been going on. Especially the bathrooms had been neatly refurbished, but it seems as though whoever had been paing for this had either lost interest or his money...
