Tour Report: Soviet Nuclear Weapons Depot

After we had finished exploring the old mental asylum - but definitely not before we had finished the cake! - we still had a little bit of daylight left at our disposal. After all, it was late October, and the weather as well as the time behaved accordingly.
We - that included Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland, Pixelcracker, my wife and myself - decided to go for a short exploration of a nearby nuclear weapons depot that had been built during the Soviet occupation.
After an adventurous drive (three cars, an unexpected stop and the coffee machine miraculously survived), we arrived at the surrounding fence and the large entry gate. We drove on for a little bit to find an opportune place to park that also was a little closer to the weapons bunkers. From there on, we walked through s bit of forest until we found a place where we could climb over the concrete wall surrounding the place.
Moving around was no problem; most of the place had been renatured and we walked around freely, altough wothout taking too many photos due to the fading light.
At some point we met a weird guy who wasn't security, but showed a strange interest in what we were doing without telling us what he was doing there. He didn't pose any threat, though, and we finished our exploration undisturbed.
Unfortunately, the light was really bad, so taking photos was kind of unseless. But who knows - maybe we'll get another chance next week when my wife and I are in the area again...
