Sanatorium "High Pines"

This is a village of dreams for urbexers...my wife and I had been there in 2014 and had explored two sanatoriums, found out that one more had been torn down and didn't have time to visit another one.
Time to make up for this omission!
It was a late sunny summer afternoon and the village was on the way back to our "urbex homebase" in the middle of the Harz mountains.
Just like two years ago, we just parked at the street and walked past the gatehouse into a small patch of forest. After a few meters, we could see the old building almost lurking through the tall pines that seemed to swallow a lot of the afternoon sun...
Getting in was easy enough - the front door was open. Since the sun was low, the ground floor was so dark that we had to use our flashlights to be able to see properly, but what we saw was a promise of beautiful decay!
Advancing further up the stairs, we became more carful; the walls are getting really unstable, some of the even have partly collapsed already. The floors of the rooms are starting to collapse as well; it is only a matter of time until the entire building is going to break down into a pile of rubble.

We managed to reach the top floor and were able to get some nice photos on the way, but since it got darker, we decided to walk back down and head back to get some dinner.
