About one month after our tour of the Harz region together with Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex, our classic tour lineup reunited once again for a tour of epic proportions.
We had planned four days of urbex frivolity in Germany's Ruhr area - a region with undreds of diverse spots to discover.
As always, we met at our place, loaded the car and left a little later than we had originally planned.
No worries though, the traffic down there is always a bitch...so much so that we got stuck in one traffic jam after another and only had time for one location on the way.
It was already getting dark when we arrived at the old psychiatric hospital.
The building was standing pretty much in the middle of the forest, but there were the neighbor's houses in sight, so we hesitated, because we knew this place to be overrun by teens and there had been some fires in the past, so there was the possibility that the neighbors call the police anytime they see someone on the premises.
After all, we did follow our credo "Impudence wins", and we just walked past the nightbor's houses and right onto the hospital grounds.
As expected, the access was easy to fnd. We could see that any effort to protect this building from vandals entering was futile. It seems like every new fence is demolished within days.
If you ask me, it's only a question of time when the whole place burns down to the ground.
The inside looked much like the outside. Hardly one stome has been left unturned by the vandals.
But - it was a nice place to warm up for the next days of touring, there were so many places waiting for us........
