Tour Report: Farmhouse Ouija

After the first abandoned spot had been a successful exploration, we drove on to the next spot of our short tour through Denmark in January of last year. On the way, we passed a farmhouse that did look pretty abandoned at first sight. So we immediatels stopped the car and I got out for a quick check.
The front door was open, and the first look inside confirmed that our assumption was in fact correct. Nobody was living here anymore.
So we got out of the car, grabbed our gear and started our exploration.
Not much after that, I spotted two people with a dog walking along the street. At first I assumed that it was just a couple taking their dog for a walk - until they started walking right towards the house that we were in...
We went outside - we are always open about what we're doing - to show that we were inside the house. They did look a bit puzzled. Well, perhaps more than a bit puzzled and asked something in Danish. After we'd established that none of us speaks any Danish and both of them did speak neither English or German really well, we managed to explain our endeavor using hands and feet, so to speak, and they let us go back inside.
I talked with them a little longer to some get more information, but the only thing that I understood was that they were the owners of the house and that they were planning to demolish it and build a new one because of the desolate state parts of the farmhouse are in.

It was a nice encounter. Again, we had met friendly people that had understood what and why we were doing it and let us go on making phots. So after about an hour and a half, we got back in the car again and drove off to the next spot.

Tour Report: The House of the Old Couple

The weather was still grey and it looked like rain, when we left the first location. I had gotten a tip from a local regarding the second spot, so naturally, we had to check it out.
It was a small house in the middle of nowhere. We parked the RV a bit off, but we didn't have to walk too far.
I went up to the building. The mailbox had exploded from too many newspapers - this place was clearly abandoned. I walked up to the front door. It was closed. But maybe...you never know...YES! It was open! I do like Denmark! Especially on the countryside, people rarely lock their front doors! Urbex paradise!
The house was really tiny and it had been trashed somewhat good. But there were still some really nice little things to find, especially in the attic, which of course was the most dangerous place to walk around...
Anyway, we all made it out safely, and we were happy to have found this little gem.

Tour Report: The House of the Evil Man

It was a cold and grey Sunday morning in January of 2017, when our infamous crew consisting of Pixelcracker, Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland and myself drove North for a short tour of the Southern region of Denmark.
We had planned four locations, all of which were homes and farms either in small villages or way out in the coutryside.
We reached our first spot almost right after we had crossed the border. It was a small house that according to my information carries a somewhat dark history with it.
Parking spots were scarce, but so where neighbors, so we parked our car right on the former driveway.
Usually, a German RV doesn't rise any suspicions in Denmark, so we were pretty sure that no one would bother us.

We made our way from the car to the house over the lawn behind the house, where we tripped over a couple of old wire fences that were lying in the high grass and that couldn't be seen, but these were the only obstacles in our way.
Upon entering the house, we found rooms still with furniture, clothes on the floor and drawers emptied. All things of value - if there were any - seemed to have been taken, but there was a surprisingly little amount of vandalism, so that we did manage to get some nice shots from inside the house as well as outside.

After about an hour, we left to find the next spot on out list.

Tour Report: Paint Factory R.

It was the final spot of our first tour of 2017 together with our dear friend Nordgriller Urbex. And it was one of those locations where you really had no choice but to park right in front of the location and walk right in. It worked nicely.
The location was an industrial ruin right in the middle of a suburban residential area. This suburban residential area literally had no public parking space except one possibility that happened to be right across the street from the desired spot. So we parked there.
There was a fence around the whole premises, but there also was an opening in the main gate - it hadn't been closed properly or it had been opened. But there was an easy way in.
It was a winter afternoon and the sunlight started to fade, so we concentrated our efforts on the ground level rooms first, worked our way up to the upper floors - as far as they were accessible - and saved the basement for last.
Being located in a residential area, many teenagers have left their mark on the location, but there were still some nice photos to shoot and even some machinery to be found.
When the sun was almost gone, we left the place - but not without being annoyed by some teenangers that called themselves "Youtubers" and whose kind is clearly the reason that last I heard there was no more possibility to get in after too many teenangers were making loud noises in that nasty-looking ruin that looks bad in the neighborhood...

Tour Report: Children's Home R.

We left our "Urbex Hotel" in Eastern Germany Sunday morning after a hearty breakfast. It was relatively early as we had two more locations planned for the day, and we had a bit of road ahead of us.
Our first stop after about 250 kilometers was an abandoned children's home that had been abandoned for about 17 years at the time of our visit.
When we arrived, we parked at an inconspicuous spot somewhere in the neighborhood and walked the rest of the way. It had snowed during the night, and we could clearly see fresh tire tracks leading up to the premises, so we were really careful.
As we arrived at the building, we saw a car parked right in front of it. wait a minute - that license plate looks somehow familiar...It was a friend of ours who I had told that we were planning to visit the place that day. he had decided for a spontaneous visit as well. So it was alright after all, we weren't in any danger of getting caught.
We took our time to explore the place thoroughly for about two hours before we left for the next spot.
It wasn't really spectacular and over the years, the local kids have made a mess out of the place - but the snow and the winter sun made for a nice light, so we managed to get some good shots.
