Tour Report: Doctor's Villa "Sparrow"

 After exploring two underground air-raid shelters from World War II, we decided to explore something above ground and enjoy the weather. We decided to check out the premises of an old lung clinic that also happens to have a very large bunker.

After a short ride, we arrived at the place. Our friend Toeppi called a guy he knew from a movie shoot that took place there a few years before to see if we could get the chance for a legal visit, but there was no chance, so we checked out the area for ourselves.

The place was huge; some buildings seemed to still be in operation, and everything else was tightly locked, so after looking around enough, we decided to head back to the car. On the way, we spotted an old house between the trees. It must have been the villa of the clinic's medical director. In earlier years, it was common that the medical director had a villa on the premises of the clinic - sometimes equipped with a private practice. This house looked "palatial" enough to be the director's villa - and our research later on confirmed our assumption.

We just had to look around for a few minutes to find a large hole in the fence, and after another couple of minutes, we had found a way into the villa.

It was kind of disappointing; the place had been thoroughly vandalized, and there was nothing left that could point to the purpose of the place. We only took a few photos before we left again. There just wasn't a lot to see - but we had one more location on our list that was going to compensate us for this little disappointment, so stay tuned...
