Smelting Works H.

Like every day during our summer vacations, we started our fourth day of exploring with a hearty breakfast at the hostel where we stayed.
During berakfast, we finialized the plan we had made during dinner the night before.
The plan for the day was to explore three locations in the southeastern foothills of the Harz mountains. So after breakfast, we loaded our gear into the car and were on our way.
The first spot we were going to check out was an old industrial area - the Smelting Works.
After many years of making an impact on the regional metalworking industry, it is now being used as an area for paintball - at least that's what the sign on the fence said.
There was no one there and it didn't look like the area was being used, so we parked our car out of sight and went along the fence until we found a hole.
The morning sun made for really nice light in the old factory halls and the architecture in some of the buildings reminded me of religious buildings. It was a really nice spot to start the day. After about two and a half hours we went back to the car to drive to the next spot.
